Kanye West “I Would Have Voted For Trump”

Kanye West Would Have Voted For Trump

Kanye West has always been something of a provocateur and a nihilist, and is staunchly anti-political correctness.

Last night he stirred a maybe unprecedented level of controversy, however, declaring at a Saint Pablo Tour show in San Jose: “I would have voted on Trump”.

“This is my platform and I’m going to talk about the paradigm shift that’s happening right now,” he said at the top of a 40-minute political speech that came at the cost of several songs.

It’s hard to ascertain exactly the point he was trying to make as we only have tweets and videos from attendees, not a transcript, to go off, but it sounds as though he was mostly praising the disruptive nature of Trump’s campaign, which ‘inspired racists to reveal themselves’.

“Whether you voted for Hillary or Trump, this is a safe space for both of you,” he told the audience, asking any Trump voters to make themselves known. He also reiterated his desire to run for president in 2020, saying his focus would be on education and that his campaign would use a different political model.

“Stop focusing on racism,” he added, declaring sombrely: “We are in a racist country – period.” His stance stands in stark contrast to 2005 Kanye, who famously declared that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” in the wake of the devestating Hurricane Katrina.

The concert received an understandably mixed response.

Kanye was apparently happy when one woman screamed that she loved him in spite of his appreciation of Trump’s campaign, but there was also a lot of booing, stunned silence and even a few projectiles – one of which was a Yeezy shoe, which Kanye promptly signed and returned to the thrower.

Mike Tyson Slaps Live Nation With $5 Million Lawsuit Over Alleged Embezzlement

Mike Tyson’s going for a knockout—in court.

The boxing champ is suing a financial-services firm and its parent company, Live Nation Entertainment, accusing one of their advisers of embezzling $300,000 from him and his wife, Lakiha.

Per the complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court and a copy of which was obtained by E! News, Tyson alleges that Brian Ourand of SFX Financial Advisory Management and Live Nation covered up the pilfering while the couple was going through bankruptcy, which prevented the Tysons from stabilizing their finances and forced them to turn down lucrative business opportunities.

The sports icon claims they trusted Ourand’s firm with their financial affairs without knowing they were receiving “false and misleading financial advice…to cover up his theft,” according to the docs.

That resulted in excess of $5 million in damages to the Tysons while their former adviser has not faced criminal prosecution and has since left SFX, the suit alleges. Not only that, but the Tysons asserted SFX/Live Nation tried “coercing” them into signing a settlement agreement and confidentiality agreement without providing a full accounting of the funds that were stolen.

The duo want unspecified damages, restitution, punitive damages and court costs.

Attorneys for Ourand and Live Nation were unavailable for comment.

Tyson, 46, has seen a career resurgence of late, thanks to cameos in box-office hits like The Hangover, appearances in best-selling video games and a one-man solo show he headlined in Las Vegas and on Broadway entitled Mike Tyson: Undisputed Truth.
