Kanye To Start Feeling The Backlash

| Filed under: Music MinuteKanye West


Looks like Donald Trump isn't the only one who thinks people should boycott Kanye West for his behavior on Sunday night's 2009 MTV VMAs.

Turns out radio stations are dropping Kanye too!

In fact, Kiss 95.1 in Florida has dropped all Kanye music from their playlist.

The station's program director, Mike Klein, decided to pull all of Kanye's music off the air after he disrespected cutie Taylor Swift while she was accepted her award.

And the station is now asking its listeners if they should keep the boycott or allow his music to play.

They're even having people go and vote online.

What do U think?

Is this a bit too extreme? Or should a temporary boycott really take place?

    OMG TOO BLOODY EXTREME. He didn't call Taylor a bitch or something, jeebus guys lighten up, the guy just made a fool of himself, that's enough.

  2. 2

    it STUPID!! he did what he did and he has apologized for it, over and over…isnt that what you (perez) have complained about. celebs not apologizing when its due… I LOVE TAYLOR and i hated what happened, however, even she seems NOT to be bitter about it…SHE is as CLASSLY as MS. B!! lets accept his apologies and move on - he is NOT a bad guy

  3. 3

    THATS CRAP!!! He made a mistake….He apologized..Now lets move the hell on!!!

  4. 4

    He should just fade away!!! I never liked this asshole or his music!!! I hope his Mother is turning in her grave!

  5. 5

    ehh too extreme…he was in the wrong and all but he has already apologized & i believe he really is sorry sometimes when u look back upon something u did u realize it was messed up….lets just move onnnnnn

    This is really begining to piss me off. i mean, they are trying to destroy his career. Why the lynch mob? it has gone from being rude to downright racial.

  7. 7


  8. 8

    He's a jerk.

    I'm glad people are banning him

  9. 9

    somebody should post all the SLIMBALL things The Donald has done that we don't know about…i bet we would have to have him done in.

  10. 10

    Was his behaviour extreme? YES! So…he deserves anything and everything he gets from this point on. Maybe it will force him to grow up and realize that he is not the greatest on this earth and that he is human and as such…will learn to pay the price. He always acts like an ass and douche because he feels he's entitled to it. Well…karma is a bitch and what goes around comes around asshole!

  11. Theo says – reply to this


    I applaud anyone who has the guts to do this. Music is a business, if I acted that way while representing my business I would be fired and he should be too. He apologized on Leno because he is feeling the backlash of the public and his peers, not because he hurt someone. Remember in the first apology he was just keep'in it real…

  12. 12

    I still love Kanye… Was he a jerk???? Uh YEAH but it's stuff like this that makes the awards so much fun!!!!!! Why dont we question LIL MAMA'S DUMB ASS NOW

  13. 13

    Its weird how people seem to be more angry about this than they were about the chris brown incident and Kanye at least apologized immediately, they were kind of weak apologies but i find it odd how worked up people are getting over this. I was appalled over it at first but isn't it time to move on already….

  14. 14


  15. drrtx says – reply to this


    He is such a jerk..how could u do that shit to a child..its unacceptable!!!

  16. 16

    Too extreme, it's not like he told Taylor Swift that her music is trash ( like I believe )

  17. 17

    this is verrrrry exteme….he did it before to Outcast and nobody made it out to be as big of a deal……now that its been done to a white girl with blonde hair- EVERYONE has somethin 2 say….

    blame it on the AL AL AL AL ALCOHOL people- GET OVER IT- he didnt beat no azz

  18. 18

    I love, love, love Taylor Swift and was very angry with what he did…. but this is getting rediculous. He's apologized three times. He seems like he is understanding what the big deal is. What exactly is it that he could do that would make you happy?
    Chris Brown was taken off radio stations for beating the hell out of Rihanna. West was just a pompous idiot.

  19. 19

    If that doesn't make him feel like a TURD ,I read online Obama told ABC that he thought Kanye was a "Jackass"!Mr. Kaye would you like some wine with your shit sandwich?

  20. 20

    absolutely not, no. kanye shouldn't have been so rude, but he's apologised. he knows he fecked up. just leave it now, stop trying to make it a bigger drama then it needs to be. I'll still buy his music, it's brilliant.

  21. 21

    there's one arabic word to sum this up:


    meaning whts with the extremity… plz he's not the first one or last one to be a jerk this is silly and is starting to remind me of playground at school when everyone would stop talking to the "meanie" or what ever!!!


    GROW UP!!!

    he's a jerk but cummon!

  22. bash2 says – reply to this


    I really don't think it's too extreme. I haven't commented on this yet - however it is really sick what people let celebrities get away with. I think it has just gotten out of control lately. What a terrible example Kanye set to all of Taylors young fans. People forget that that channel & music is aimed at children (UNFORTUNATELY)… Celebrities are rotting all of our brains with their idiotic actions and it's time someone pays. Kanye has repeatedly done rude and disrespectful things I personally stopped listening to him a long time ago bc of his terrible attitude.

  23. 23

    i wouldn't mind if a permanent ban of Kanye's music took place everywhere around the world.

  24. 24


  25. 25

    Way too extreme…I agree with those saying he's apologised and move on…I reckon he really does regret especially now that even the Prez called him a jackass…bottom line is his music is good even if he did get carried away with his ego and brandy…..

  26. 26

    No it's not too extreme……It's not just Taylor, it's ALL of the times he acted crazy. Being a "Star" is a privilege and if you don't have any respect for your God given success, then it should be taken from you.
    I think he has no care in the world for anyone, I don't even know if he cares about himself. It's clear the man has problems! What from jumping on stage at award shows to trying to kick the shit out of someone at the airport. It's gotten to the point where it's enough! His vain gloriousness just bit him in the ass! Don't worry He loves himself SOOO much I bet it won't even bother him.
    It's so easy to say "sorry" well you know I'm tired of hearing him say "sorry" if he was truly “sorry” then he would not have even done it to begin with his sorry isn't worth shit. He is a bully and he needs to be truly put in his place. Maybe he will wake up once his wallet takes a hit!

  27. 27

    He knew what he was doing. He needs to face the music. I am glad for his ugly face.

  28. 28



  29. 29

    It's getting ridiculous. I completely think Kanye acted like an ass. He apologized. And he's paying the price. I think the man probably has a substance abuse problem. Anyone who down most of a bottle of Congac is not well, IMO. And let's not turn this into Dixie Chicks part 2. It's not like he pushed her down or cursed at her or anything. He was out of line and it was obnoxious. Let's move on people.

    There are far worst things going on right now, people. Why not get this angry at your Congressmen? Jeez.

  30. 30

    Punish his ass…. a temporary punishment might bring his spoiled loud mouth arse back down where it belongs ……….. he's a rude arrogant fuck that deserves to grovel for once ……… what an arse hole.

  31. 31

    Give me a break. Ya, he's always been an arrogant cut-up and what he did crossed over the line, but it's really not that shocking considering the source and venue. He was also loaded which probably way amplied his already squirrelly behavior. He aplogized, move on. If anyone acted like more of an asshole it was Pink who came out with her unsolicited name calling when it's none of her freaking business to begin with. Mind your own manners you little faux tough girl.

  32. 32

    A bit much!

  33. 33

    kanye i love ya make ur music for me"

  34. 34

    Kanye gets what he gets. Maybe he should get AA if he can't control his drinking or his behaviour while imbibing. Way to steal someone's (decent) thunder in the biggest, most arrogant way possible!

  35. 35

    US is a democratic country. We are allowed to say our opinions. That was Kanye's opinion and he is also an american citizen so he can say what he wants. If he wasn't famous and he said the same thing on a street people wouldn't even care.

  36. 36

    Kanye is really a douche. Not just because of the Taylor incident. WTF. He chugged henesy at the show. How tasteless is that. Yuck. Get some class dumbass.

  37. 37

    I totally agree. I think it's a racial issue at this point. In reverse. Even though his girl is caucasion.
    It was blatant disrespect and shows total lack of emotional intelligence.
    There are sportsmanship rules in every profession.
    He violated them.
    I totall view in a different light.

  38. 38

    It's totally justified. I'm sick & tired of people looking the other way with this racist asshole. He needs to be knocked off his high horse & be sent crashing back to Planet Earth.

  39. 39

    It might be nice to send him a clear message that his behavior isn't OK. Maybe this is the only way he will change himself. If this was the first time he acted like an ass, this would be too extream. But lets face it, he acts like this ALL the time. He needs to change. Why bother changing if there are no consequences to his actions.

  40. 40

    anyone who doesnt think this punishment is extreme needs to get a life!!!!!!! its not a big deal

  41. 41

    If he thinks for one minute that he gained any respect after that night … he's wrong! what he did was mortifying and now all of a sudden he's wondering why everyone is acting the way they are? let's be serious!! He has done enough damage to everyone only to make his ego higher and i say 3 strikes your out.

  42. 42

    A temporary ban is exactly what this self absorbed, egotistical, windbag needs. He needs to learn that respect for other artists and fans is paramount to success in this business. At the very least, lets ban this fool for a few days to take him down a notch.

  43. 43

    how ridiculous. it was a stupid awards show and not even a good one at that. give it a rest. if taylor is over it everyone else should be too.

  44. 44

    Oh good god — yes, he was an ass and messed up and hurt her feelings and took her spotlight….but he didn't do anything criminal. I didn't buy his music before, and I won't start nowe, but it's ridiculous to ban him.
    Stop trying to create extra drama.

  45. 45

    Re: LCFB

    Honey, he ruined his own damn career! Racial? I love how people always play the race card. Remember he only does this when a white person defeats a black person! His head is too big for his damn self now.

  46. 46

    If a child did something wong we reprimand them , they learn, we forgive them. Kanye has the mind of a child so we should treat him like one - I'm not a fan of his, but honestly, cant we just let it go. Taylor forgave him. Geez.

  47. 47

    what the hell happened? i missed the whole VMA's thing… but i see that everyone is trashing kanye all of a sudden and crying over taylor swift..?

  48. 48

    wow let it go ppl! It's the VMA's!!!!!!!! I'll request Kanye on purpose

  49. Bytch says – reply to this


    Nope, this bitch needs to learn that being an arrogant son of a bitch at EVERY award show and developing a rep for being a douchebag has consequences. Its not JUST what he did to Taylor Swift, people are sick of his antics and ego. FUCK KANYE, HE'S A GAY FISH!!!!

  50. 50

    They should BAN him FOREVER! He keeps making the SAME "mistakes" over and over and over… and he'll do it again and again, he'll never change especially if he's forgiven so quickly each time, he needs to face the music!

  51. 51

    This isn't the first time he has pulled a temper tantrum. He somehow makes it all about him EVERY year. He says he is all for the love of music and everything - well then he should be happy when a young talented artist is recognized, and if he had kept his mouth shut he would have seen the Beyonce DID win an award.

    I think people should abandon his music just for a few weeks to teach him that it is NOT cool to disrespect someone in that way and that he REALLY needs to calm down and stop being the very douche he has become. He is very talented, but that does NOT give him the right to do what he did.

  52. 52

    He deserves it. This isnt the first time he has pulled this $hit. He does it all the time!
    May I remind you "George Bush hates black people"?
    "my video was million dollars to make, I shoulve won" This is NOT his first time to ruin someones moment on stage…

    he's a titty baby

  53. 53

    Re: dolcedoll89
    saying what you want is not the same as jumping on stage and ruining the best day of a young artists career. I agree we should let it go, but your point i stupid.

  54. 54

    Let him feel the heat for some time. Let him sweat a little. He deserves that.

  55. 55

    Look, the fact is, society has stopped punishing these idiots for bad manners, bad behavior, and you can't have a society runn smoothly when people don't follow some sort of guildlines on how to deal with other people. Since Kanye's family never taught him how to behave the only thing left is hitting him in the wallet.

  56. 56

    I think we're all ready for a new hip hop star. He has fucked with us for too long. I think he did his best in College Dropout and this autotune shit just makes it seem like he has no more talent. I like his beats, but his lyrics are crap. On top of ALL of that - he is such a douchebag and not worthy of our time.

  57. 57

    The highlight of the VMA should have been Micahel Jackson tribute… RIGHT? and Janet performing on stage!.. NOW because of KANYE's stunt….he took that away from Michael and Janet…Thanks alot low class…hood rat…Kanye!!!

  58. 58

    Re: fantasticmari – Because no one cares about Lil Mama…she's only relevant in her head. I know she's issuing apologies and desperately trying to get air-time, but she's just not important enough to give a shit about. She's a sad little troll.

  59. 59

    I also think it's time to stop giving this douche bag the time of day. Let's focus on something important like the sad passing of Patrick Swayze. Fuck Kanye.

  60. 60

    too extreme? PUH-LEASE! Kanye's music sucks. he acts like he invented the vocoder! So PLAYED! oh and he samples Daft Punk like it's something clever he came up with. KILL YOURSELF KANYE. YOU'RE DONE!

  61. 61

    Re: dolcedoll89 – HEY STUPID! it has nothing to do with freedom of speech, you fool!! What Kanye did was rude and appauling. He had no right to interupt ANYONE'S speech. However, he thinks that because he's black and in his mind discriminated against, he has the right to do whatever he wants. And then when someone points it out, he cries racism. Simply disgusting. And unless you have anything intelligent to say, keep your young mouth shut.

  62. 62

    Look, I think the guy's a douche with anger management issues. I was as pissed off as the next person when he disrespected Taylor like that, but he has apologized and he obviously really does feel badly about it. Let's move on and not ruin the man's career over a stupid mistake. Maybe him yet again publicly making an ass of himself will be the push he needs to get the help he obviously needs.

  63. 63

    Re: IHATEKANYEforREAL – What's wrong with racism in this country is that it still exists. Many black people harbor ill will towards white people STILL cause of slavery and civil rights crimes of the past. They act like the "man" owes them. White people still think they run everything in this country. You got latinos, like myself, who are stuck in the middle cause white people treat us better than they treat black people but not as good as themselves. It's a serious problem. And with Obama being president, I feel it may just get worse again. I hope not. Cause this is bs already. Love each other!

  64. 64

    I think what upsets me about this situation is who he did this to. He did this to a girl who would never do a thing back to him. Pink said it yesterday during an interview that if it was she that won the award he never would have done that. He took advantage of a teenager and ended up looking like an asshole. Watch the videos and see Beyonce's reaction to it… she was mortified! At least she had enough class to let Taylor have her moment. I think that Kanye's ego is way too big for him. He's had some good songs but he is not the "King" like he thinks he is. I read that MTV didn't show it but he also flipped off the crowd after it… why would anyone stand up for an asshole like that?

  65. 65

    It wasn't the first time he had a "superstar" moment… He keeps treating others like he is a gift from the gods or something. He has to learn to behave himself instead of apologizing after he made the mess

  66. 66

    I always had a dislike for Kanye and i think he is the biggest PRICK in the music industry. I dont think this is the end of his bitch like outbursts i really think he needs to fucked in the ass so that he can finally be happy.

  67. 67

    TOO EXTREME. Kanye messed up. He's human. AND he's apologized for it 3 TIMES.

    10 minutes before the Taylor incident, Madonna was paying tribute to the great MJ. If there's anything the VMA hoopla should have focused on– it's that we're all human. We make mistakes. (did you see all that booze he was drinkingg?!) Forgive and Forget. Taylor got her moment, Beyonce got her moment, and Kanye got his lol.

  68. 68

    You Americans are such hypocrites. You diss someone who does something like this and in one week their career really takes off. It also seems like the worse things they do the bigger they get. I bet if he had killed Taylor and sexually abused her corpse on stage he would be signing movie deals, book deals and major endorsements on his way out of the building. And IF he was arrested for the deed he would be let out after 20 minutes and would be spending the next weeks jumping on sofas on talk-shows.
    In the good old days you would suffer for doing something like he did.

  69. 69

    Re: Genghis Khan – hey retard…Kanye acting like a classless animal on LIVE TELEVISION made it EVERYONE'S business!! If it was no business of Pink's, who was there, why is it any of YOURS and who gives you the right to comment?! So stupid…go crawl in the grave with his dead mother.

  70. 70

    Re: dolcedoll89 – oh and by the way, retard…we don't have VMA's "on the street"

  71. Catha says – reply to this


    Are you effin kidding me! Pulled all of his music!!!! This is wayyy to far. Rep. Joe Wilson isnt being cut from his seat and he interrupted the President!!!! Come on people. He has apologized several times and last night I really felt it!! He means it!!! He was wrong! Dead wrong! But come on! To stop playing the mans music! TOO FAR!

  72. 72

    It's not too extreme at all. You know the only reason he apologized was because he feared the backlash. He's getting it from all angles and he DESERVES it. If there's no punishment, what's to stop this ass doing something like this again. You do something shitty, you gotta pay for it. He totally deserves to get banned. Serves his ass right.

  73. 73

    Re: FL Shady Bitch – Our generation was not part of slavery and segregation. LET'S ALL GET OVER IT!! Kanye acting like an arrogant asshole and using his racism as an excuse for his antics is the VERY reason why racism still exists!

  74. 74

    Re: LCFBRe: LCFB – Are you kidding me? Racial!!?? For real? because he is black and people are hating him now you think that has ANYTHING to do with his race? GROW UP! People don't care that he is black, they care that he is a complete selfish arrogant asshole! The fact that he is black has NOTHING to do with people liking or disliking him. Well maybe you only like him because he is black i dont know.

  75. 75

    TOO FUCKING EXTREME!!! Thats just disgusting, even though Kanye is an ass he's still damn talented, he won the most grammy awards for a hiphop artist for goodness sake!!!!

  76. 76

    Re: El loco Norwegian – What the fuck are you talking about?! If America is so stupid, then leave. We've got enough idiots in this country and one less would be a great start.

  77. 77

    Definitely the right move. Kanye has been an asshole on countless occasions. Remember that shirt he wore when MJ died? " RIP MJ but now i'm the new king of pop" or that time when he didn't win best new artist? Kanye has been asking for this since he began. He needs a reality check and this is it.

  78. Catha says – reply to this


    Re: IHATEKANYEforREAL – U are an evil person!!!! WOW! U must worship the devil!!! Im in shock!

  79. 79

    True, he's total douche nozzle, but enough is enough. He's been skewered plenty. Time to move on peeps!

  80. Theo says – reply to this


    I also agree with many bloggers here that it is not his first time…he has proven that he has a belief system that allows him to rationalize this behavior again and again…you can change an attitude but it takes a lot more to change a belief system. He believes that he is above reproach…and this time he went too far…

  81. 81

    If this was the first incidence of this nature for Kayne West I would say it was extreme, but with his constant public outbursts it is time for a lesson. Kayne knew he wasn't going to win an award and how could he get the publicity? By making a total ass of himself…any publicity is good publicity. DJ's around the US and Canada are refusing to play his music and I am one.

  82. 82

    What people aren't getting - this is a culmination of it all. For the last 4 years at awards shows, he's thrown tantrums, taken the spotlight off the stars and this time, he didn't even do it for himself, he just wanted an ego boost. Everyday he releases some statement about how great he is and every awards show he says f*ck MTV or whatever. It's time the biz stopped putting up with his tantrums.

  83. 83

    Re: dolcedoll89 – You are stupid. Yes, no one would care if he had said it on the street, but jumped up on stage at an industry event. Way to to shit where you sleep.
    And yes, this is a Democratic country. You are free to say whatever you want. But it's not like anyone is throwing him in jail for it!! Idiot.

  84. 84

    OMG! He fucked up! Which one of us hasn't? He paid for it last night on Leno with the question about his mom. THAT was brutal and unfair.

  85. 85

    Re: dolcedoll89 If he wasn't famous and bum rushed the stage like that, he would have probably been arrested. Freedom of speech doesn't mean you can do what you want. Try jumping up on the stage during a Presidential speech, hell try doing it to Bill Gates… try jumping in the middle of Shea stadium for your "right to free speech" and see how far it gets you.

  86. 86

    He needs to grow up and stop throwing tantrums everytime something happens that he doesnt like. He should find out what its like when people are fed up. Yeah its extreme…..but sometimes its what it takes for people to finally shut the hell up.

  87. 87

    Considering this wasn't his first time acting out at an awards show, they should ban him for a bit. Maybe it will take his ego down a notch.

  88. 88

    Re: IHATEKANYEforREAL – I totally agree with everything your saying its too true!!! Too true!!!!!

  89. 89

    i dont think its to extreme.. maybe if he just did this one thing his whole life. then ya way to extreme. but in the past hes done and said some stupid fucked up shit. and now karma should be kicking him in the ass for being such a piece of shit.

  90. 90

    should be a permanent ban. his music is shit.

  91. 91

    He said he was sorry three times. He made a horrible mistake. We soon forget that we have all made bad choices. He is no different than any other ego in Hollywood.
    If he continues to act foolish then there is reason for concern. He has to live with the shame. He has talent let's forgive and move on. He can clean up his own mess.

  92. 92

    A bit extreme I think, but right in some way also - will show him that he isn't the 'God' of all music that he thinks he is. Get a grip and back down Kanye!

  93. 93

    You know if this were the first time this Idiot had done something like this I would say YES this is way to extreme, but….it's NOT….He is a childish little jackass who needs to grow up & start respecting his peers!!! There are always consequences for your actions….so as far as I'm concerned this is what you get! Learn to keep your mouth shut!!! And by the way Beyonce's video is good but it's not the greatest of all time!!!!!!

  94. 94

    I have no problem with it. Celebrities need to realize that there are consequences for their actions and they will be held accountable. The problem here is that this is not his first outburst. He has has proven himself a tyrant, a baby, a poor sport, and a jackass time and again. Humiliating another artist, and a teenager at that, in front of millions of people is not acceptable on any level. That said, this will not ruin his career. It will eventually blow over until his next jackass outburst. A leopard doesn't change it's spots.

  95. Niloo says – reply to this


    Sometimes extreme measures are the only way people will want to CHANGE. This will be a good lesson for Kayne because everyone is tired of his egocentric and arrogant ways that affect peoples successes and deserving awards negatively. Actions deserve consequence and just letting this pass will just be another enabler for him. Celebrities need to WAKE UP and realize they are people who will have to face consequences like the rest of us. What he did was disgraceful, disrespectful, and undignified to the music industry.

  96. 96

    Im over it already…it was shoking when it happened, everyone said their opinion, he's apologized whether its sincere or not…and now im ready to move on from it. That radio station is probably just using it as a ploy for listeners to visit their webpage

  97. 97


    I don't live in America… So you're in luck :-)

  98. 98

    Good. It's called karma and it's a bitch if you have to repay for negative behavior.

  99. 99

    come on! give him a break, he apologized.
    he already did a fool of himself,
    he does not need enemies,
    he does the job pretty well.

  100. 100

    he',ego maniac what a fool,,I dont like him at all,his mother is rolling in her grave..embarrassed
