- Kanye West was pulled from the Grammys performance lineup due to his ‘concerning online behavior,’ according to a representative for the artist who confirmed to Variety he was no longer performing at the annual awards show. The rapper The Game was initially the first person who claimed Kanye had been pulled from the Grammys performance lineup.
Kanye, 44, has come under fire for his repeated public outbursts aimed at his estranged wife Kim Kardashian and her new boyfriend Pete Davidson, as well as at other celebrities such as Trevor Noah, who have criticized his behavior.
This week Kanye was suspended from Instagram for 24 hours for his posts about Pete and Trevor, which are said to have violated the site’s harassment policy.
In an Instagram post he uploaded Friday evening, The Game theorized that Kanye’s alleged removal from the Grammys ‘could be’ related to the fact Trevor is hosting.
He wrote: ‘When will all the BLACK entertainers, Athletes, Actors, Producers, Writers, Directors, Media etc… figure it out,
‘Time & time again they show us that they only want to STEAL the culture, not allow you to ever be their equals. In a more than obvious move for reasons of minuscule actions…,’ The Game wrote in his caption.
The Game, whose real name is Jayceon Taylor, wrote: ‘The Grammys have at the last minute decided to pull @kanyewest from performing on the show as if we didn’t know it was coming.’
He aired out his suspicion: ‘Could be because @trevornoah is hosting and there was a conversation held amongst his team & the academy that led to the decision or because Ye’s account was suspended just days ago for reasons unknown especially in a world where all the negativities of the world can be found on the same app with no repercussions or suspensions….’
The Game continued: ‘We’ll just say it’s all of the above & a continuous disrespect for us & all that we have brought to the table in entertainment, media & sports over the last 100 years especially.’
He declared: ‘Speak your mind in this country for yourself, family or your people & you’re ostracized immediately & if you push them hard enough they will stop at no ends to try and put an end to you as a whole…. I for one, have never been scared to speak my mind even understanding what the consequences may be.
‘I can’t sleep at night knowing I was quiet about issues burning holes in my heart or narratives incorrectly pushed by the mass agenda to create a mind set that the person at hand is krazy or has issues internally that are beyond repair.’
The Game, who recently collaborated with Kanye on a track called Eazy where Kanye made fun of Kim and their ‘rich a** kids,’ soldiered on: ‘I say all this to say, I’M WOKE….. & while I am.. lemme remind you that Colin Kapernick still isn’t allowed in the NFL, lynching just became a federal hate crime in 2022 & you can now not be discriminated from employment because of the way you decide to wear your hair….’
