Anonymous has a very large bone to pick with Kanye West.
A person or group claiming to be the self-proclaimed hacktivists Anonymous posted a video to YouTube squaring off against the Watch the Throne rapper for his latest few rounds of stupidity and word vomit.
The video shows a man in a Guy Fawkes mask, generally recognized as the symbol of the Anonymous cohorts, interrupting a video of the rapper spouting off about Beyoncé at the Grammys not too long ago. What follows is pretty much every thought most of us have had whenever Kanye West gets handed a microphone.
The voice on the screen starts off by pointing out that West consistently steals the moment from deserving people and acts like a spoiled child throwing a temper tantrum. It goes straight for the jugular, saying they think his mother would be ashamed of the way he acts, and questions if she would approve of the way his wife exploited herself, her body and her morality for fame, attention and money.
He then goes on a pretty long tirade against Kim Kardashian. Now, I don’t necessarily disagree with what he is saying. But, I also don’t think that she should be judged so harshly for naked pictures on the internet. I mean, it is a double-edged sword, isn’t it? I totally agree with what he is saying about the way women are used as sex symbols and that might not be the best message to send to young women and girls. But I don’t really have a problem with a woman taking control of her own sexuality and making something of herself with it. After all, as we already said, she’s going to be sexual exploited anyway, so she might as well make it work for her.
Once he gets off the relationship train, he jumps back to the fact that West is an egomaniac.
He says, “It’s time to awaken from your insanity, Mr. West. In reality, you’re not a Renaissance man — you’re just a new slave that the industry uses to keep the population in a cycle of stupidity and distraction.”
He speaks aloud the words that have run through our minds a thousand times when it comes to Kanye West. “You represent yourself as a man of class, yet everything you say and do is the exact opposite of that… You will always be the hotheaded, Chicago-born, spoiled little brat that you are and no expensive designer wear will ever be able to cover that up.”
It should be interesting to see if/when West responds, since he seems to believe he is the antithesis of a slave to “the man,” but that is exactly what they call him.
