Kanye West’s controversial turn as a Glastonbury headliner went down yesterday (June 27). It was a typical Yeezy show until a known comedian crashed the stage.
Reports the Daily Mail:
There was a 134k strong petition from angry Glastonbury fans to have his headline act cancelled.
But one music fan took matters into his own hands on Saturday night as a mocking stage crasher found his way onto stage and interrupted Kanye West’s Pyramid stage performance before being dragged off.
It was comedian Lee Nelson who gave Kanye a taste of his own medicine after the rapper famously interrupted Taylor Swift and Beck during awards acceptance speeches.
Kanye was in the middle of an expletive-laden performance – which went out live on British television – when Lee invaded the stage at Worthy Farm in Somerset.
Nelson wore a T-shirt that mocked the rap artist’s album Yeezus – as it read ‘Lee-zus’ instead – and tweeted before the gig: ‘Some people were saying Kanye shouldn’t headline Glastonbury so I thought I’d give him a hand.’
Wait, dude interrupted “Black Skinhead”? Now if said comedian caught the fade (read: got his ass whooped) “On Sight” by security, would that be wrong? See what we did there?
