Kanye Gets Trashed on Wikipedia
What Kanye West did at last night’s VMAs to Taylor Swift was despicable, and he’s certainly feeling the backlash. As a matter of fact, he may have knocked Chris Brown out of the runnings for becoming America’s Most Despised Celebrity. But I digress. What he did, including the apology he made, has been blogged about all day, ad nauseam.
What I find more interesting is that someone hated what he did so much, that they decided to “edit” and “revise” his Wikipedia entry. NOTE: I worked as a fact checker for a major magazine and we never considered Wikipedia a reliable source for that very reason. Let that be a lesson to those of you who think that Wiki is the solution for credible answers. But anyway, I stumbled upon Necole Bitchie’s blog and found the following excerpt from Kanyeezy’s revamped Wikipedia entry:
“Kanye West is a dope dealing, crack smoking, cocaine sniffing, no talent, immature, cowardly racist son of a b*tch who doesn’t even deserve to be on a stage or in a studio. He is also a spoiled rotten Mama’s boy who screams and cries and stomps his foot and throws a tantrum when he doesn’t get his way. I bet his dead mother is happy that she doesn’t have to put up with his lame ass sh*t anymore. His true colors have come out. F*ck YOU KANYE! After your actions tonight at the MTV VMA’s you have sealed your career in a lead lined coffin which I sincerely hope is on it’s way to the bottom of the deepest darkest hole at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.”
You can try to see it for yourself, but Wikipedia has since locked the page. Um, they might want to consider re-evaluating how they let people submit information all free like the wind. The person who took the time out to do that is no better than ‘Ye. I’m just saying…
In the meantime, google Dikipedia.org and look for Kanye West. Hopefully it will all begin to make sense. Then again, we already knew he was a world class jerk right?
P.S. That doesn’t mean that I don’t still appreciate his music.
