After Kanye West eventually kills himself after Silencing Of The Lambs-ing his entire family, people better not have the audacity to act surprised. The man is obviously going through a complete psychological meltdown, but we’re still giving his statements – mainly given via Twitter – veracity, without the disclaimer: “This man has lost the damn plot.” He’s literally addicted to Twitter. Again, I urge everyone to read Jaron Lanier’s book Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now, in which he states regarding social media:
The term ‘engagement’ is part of the familiar, sanitized language that hides how stupid a machine we have built. We must start using terms like ‘addiction’ and ‘behavior modification.’
Yesterday West fired off an alarming almost one hundred tweets slamming Drake. Apparently the two rappers have some feud. I truly – and I really mean this from the bottom of my heart – don’t give a fuck what they’re feuding about. And no one should. We should be zooming out to look at the bigger picture, which is that millions of impressionable fans are consuming the gospel of a maniac. Here are just some of the tweets that twatters opened wide for from West:
Drake called trying to threatened (sic) me
There would never be a drake without a Kanye west so never come out your mouth with a threat.
So drake if anything happens to me or anyone from my family you are the first suspect So cut the tough talk.
If I’m bipolar This kind of s–t can get me ramped.
He’s an unmedicated conspiracy theorist who is going to kill his family. For her part, his wife Kim Kardashian defended her future murderer with:
My husband is the most brilliant person, the most genius person that I know. He has broken so many boundaries, everything from music, stage design, fashion and culture and will continue to change the world.
Considering Kim is surrounded by the Jenndashian’s 24/7, I don’t doubt the first sentence. What else is there to say. THESE PEOPLE ARE CRAZY. For a recap of Kanye’s tweets slamming Drake, you can check out this video:
