Daily killjoy reminder that Monica Lewinski was a twenty-three-year-old intern seduced by the most powerful man in the world and as a result had her life destroyed to the point where she was essentially forced out of the country and now, twenty years later, she is still just a punch line rather than a human being with a master’s degree.
And killjoy reminder that your feminist hero Beyoncé is one of the people perpetrating this.
Do you think Kanye humiliated the paraplegics or was it an honest mistake and ppl are over reacting?
Anytime anything involves Kanye West, the media is going to overreact and turn it into something else.
Case in point. Kanye has made it a custom to stop the music and talk to the crowd at his concerts. Sometimes its about serious topics, sometimes its positive and uplifting, sometimes its just whatever.
But no matter WHAT he says, it’s automatically labeled a “rant”. I remember the other week he stopped his concert to give an update on the new yeezy shoes and someone uploaded the video to YouTube. The video was “Kanye Rant: Yeezy Updates”
The man wasn’t ranting about shoes. When you automatically label someone’s word as a “Rant” no matter what they say, you’re subtly discrediting them painting them as unstable.
But anyway, back to the subject at hand. If you really watched the video you’ll see Kanye ask everyone in the stadium to stand up. When Kanye saw some people weren’t standing, he asked why and the crowd told him they were disabled. So he said “aight cool” and then started the song.
That’s all that happened.
Somehow that turned into “Kanye Berates Man In Wheelchair For Not Standing” in the media.
