Kanye West definitely isn’t having the best holiday weekend. The rapper was the headline act Friday and Saturday (July 4 and 5) at the Wireless music festival in London, but those in attendance weren’t exactly excited about it.
He was booed during both performances, wile wearing that mask that has become a normal part of his act. The boos erupted both nights while West ranted. The first night he was complaining about how he and wife Kim Kardashian are treated, Digital Spy reports.
He even went after companies, claiming, “I’m not going to mention any names but … Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don’t discriminate against me because I’m a black man making music.” How they discriminate against him isn’t clear.
The next night, the audience started booing when West told them he works until the early morning hours simply to make music for the people to listen to in the car. After the fans chanted they’d rather see Drake, The Mirror reports West asked that the video screens on either side of the stage be turned off, explaining, “I’m very shy in real life.”
Of course, in a festival setting with thousands of people, not being able to see what’s happening on the stage isn’t exactly going to make things better. Eventually West continued with his show, though. While some of the crowd ended up singing along with the music, the Vine below makes it easy to see just how agitated the audience seemed to be
