Kanye West: ‘Give Chris Brown a break – and O.J.’

February 27th, 2009 // 153 Comments

Kanye West recently performed for VH1′s Storytellers, and during the three hour shoot he made some choice comments that producers decided to edit out. Including a plea to back off Chris Brown. Reuters reports:

A little later, West asked the crowd, “Can’t we give Chris a break? … I know I make mistakes in life.” He was referring to R&B singer Chris Brown, who was arrested on the night of the Grammys on suspicion of beating his girlfriend Rihanna.
In the same context, West earned loud applause with his declaration: “Michael Jackson, amazing. Michael Phelps, amazing … He’s a real f—in’ person; he makes mistakes,” referring to the champion swimmer’s recent bong pipe brouhaha.
VH1 has cleaned up those comments a bit, and it also included West’s less-popular follow-up observation: “O.J. Simpson, amazing. Is he not? What he did, when he did, what he did. Was he not amazing though?”

I love how he lumped Michael Phelps in there because taking a hit off a bong is the exact same thing as beating your girlfriend, molesting children and killing your wife. I mean, who among us didn’t look at the Rihanna photo and immediately say “Damn. It’s Michael Phelps all over again!”? Frankly, I don’t see how you can tell the two apart they’re so alike.

  1. Why are most Caucasians STILL…angry at OJ, and even after Michael has died they are still accusing him of some of the worst things they can imagine,b ut not the worst things I can imagine?

    How is it that they have this kind of hatred for Oprah, Michael, and OJ, but most of them in the privacy of their homes supported The Bush regime in it’s attacking innocent nations and murdering nearly a million new born babies, toddlers, children, young adults and grownups?

    If it is not the fact that they just hate seeing White people all over the world and in all age groups and income brackets adore someone Black, then please tell me why they think in such a pathological manner?

    If you aren’t aware of how many people we have killed in the middle east look at this video and the information which is below it:


    America, the Global Rogue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Then give me your reasons in an adult, well educated manner. Don’t attack me personally for asking the question. If you think my reasoning is wrong, then provide evidence; not your personal opinion, opinions are like arseholes. Everybody has one of them.

    I’ll be waiting to see which Caucasian, or Sambo/a steps up to the plate first.

  2. He tries so hard to his intelligence and the people behind him, but the world laughs at him. He really needs to give up. Yes Kanye, OJ was fantastic. He played football for shit, watching these movies shit Naked Gun, then decided to kill his ex-wife and her lover.
