Kanye West Gets The Finger From Calgary

Related Article:

Let's call a spade a spade. The only reason Kanye West cancelled his tour to Calgary, was quite simply as a consequence of his behaviour at the MTV Music Video awards.

Such blatant disrespect and racism should not be tolerated. Calgarians have just flipped him the bird by not buying tickets. But, hey, they might still support him in Detroit.

Kanye West and Lady Gaga's tour has been cancelled, according to tour promoter Live Nation.

It is not known why the tour has been cancelled but a press release from Live Nation said tickets will be refunded either at the point of purchase or automatically if purchased online or by phone.

The pair was set to play the Saddledome on Nov. 26.

Rumors of a tour cancellation have been spreading since West interrupted Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech at the MTV Video Awards last month.

Despite an apology from West, which Swift accepted, the interruption raised the ire of many worldwide and many said they would no longer but tickets for the tour or support West's music.

I was outraged when I saw the video clip. Serves the piece of shit right. I hope he never get's to do another tour, ever.

By the way VI, by chance I came across a bit of information about Calgary from one of your local (leftist) writers. Apparently you are living in somewhat of a Bible belt. Heh heh. That's quite funny :)

@FE. Ha ha, not really. We have pockets of religious folk, but nowhere near the types of numbers one would find in any South African city. Quite the contrary; Calgary is highly educated relative to other Canadian cities even, and that manifests in a higher percentage of atheism. We even have adverts on our buses that say "God doesn't exist. So relax and enjoy life."

Then you are "safe". Ha ha.

Could we argue that Kanye West is America's Julius Malema of the moment?
