Every loves a good Kanye West performance, right? At least when you can hear and see it, anyways.
At Sunday (May 17) night’s Billboard Music Awards, Kanye experienced more than your traditional technical difficulty. Performing his most recent release “All Day” single along with 2013 “Black Skinhead” at the close of the show, Dr. West was accompanied by a swarm of pyrotechnic effects making it difficult for viewers at home to see the long awaited performance. He was also joined on stage by Allan Kingdom and Theophilius London, but you know…we couldn’t see them either.
Adding fuel to the fire (haha, get it?), Kanye’s performance was dramatically censored throughout the whole thing. Some sources even report booing after Kanye’s performance. Awww, poor Kanye.
Here’s what some of the twitter world had to say:
Some white powerful executive is sitting back saying so all we had to do was mute this Kanye guy the whole time?

Note: @kanyewest is one of the most important artists of our time. But, to have 75 percent of his performance censored.. A true waste.
