Kanye West Slammed For Controversial “Forty-Seven Percent” Comment

West has a history of polarizing statements and -- wait, he's gonna let us finish.

In a disaster certain to alienate many, Kanye West appeared in a leaked video in which he made derogatory remarks about his fanbase. 

“There are 47 percent of people that will listen to my music no matter what,” West says in the now-infamous video, “All right, there are 47 percent who feel like they’re black when they listen to my music, who feel like they can wear flat-brims and thick chains and wear grills when they’re bumpin’ my beats, and that’s okay."            

“It’s not my job to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and stop being absolute douchebags,” the infamous rapper/producer stated.

Presidential candidate Mitt Romney was quick to attack West for his comments. “It’s absolutely despicable for Kanye to dismiss such a wide portion of his fanbase like that,” Romney declared, “We can all see what he’s rapping about. Everyone can feel what a brother’s been through. Even a nigga like me can relat- oh, fuck.”

Romney’s statement is awaiting completion after it was cut to an abrupt close by the approach of a well-built African-American man. The man was detained for attempted assault and battery, but released when it was learned that he was only walking by to pick his daughter up from school.
