Kanye West makes statement amid ongoing public fallout with Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson
Do you agree that the rapper should be removed from the festival's line-up following his recent antics?
Following his recent shenanigans, Kanye West has rattled fans, followers and critics, with them no calling for the rapper to be dropped from the Coachella's 2022 lineup.
The petition was launched on the same day that Instagram suspended Yé from posting for 24 hours following his repeated attacks on wife Kim Kardashian her new beau Pete Davidson, as well as comedians D.L. Hughley and Trevor Noah.
"We have watched Kanye harass, manipulate, and hurt Kim, Pete, and others for over a year now. No one seems to want to stand up to him, and the ones that do, he puts under fire as well. This is ridiculous that he is allowed to freely do this" the petition reads.
Yesterday, the DONDA 2 rapper had his Instagram account suspended for 24 hours after violating the social media platform's regulations on hate speech, bullying, and harassment.
After he posted screenshots on his feed of a Google search for Trevor Noah, presenting commentary that included racist slurs, Instagram
Kanye West received a lot of controversy earlier this month after releasing a troubling music video for his new song "Eazy," which features The Game.
Yé's can be seen in the video throwing a bag over Pete's head, tying him up, and tossing him onto the back of an all-terrain vehicle. He then drags his body into the sand dunes before being buried alive, his head slightly above the ground.
Kanye later addressed the online criticism by defending his actions by claiming "art is freedom of speech".
"Art is therapy just like this view. Art is protected as freedom of speech. Art inspires and simplifies the world. Art is not a proxy for any ill or harm. Any suggestion otherwise about my art is false and mal intended 🖤" he wrote in the now deleted IG post.
After seven years of marriage, Kim filed for divorce from musician Kanye West, citing "irreconcilable differences" and declaring that she no longer wishes to be married to him.
