Kanye West Cancels On Jimmy Kimmel — Refuses To Read Mean Tweets?
A set was built in Austin, TX., specially for the rapper to appear on Jimmy’s show but that didn’t stop him from cancelling, according to Page Six.
Kanye’s segment completely fell apart when the rapper refused to be part of Jimmy’s highly popular “mean tweets” segment where Kanye would read mean things people have tweeted about him. Some of the most famous celebs have participated like: Drake, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Gwyneth Paltrow, Lena Dunhan, Gerard Butler, Britney Spears, Chris Pratt, John Stamos, Adam Sandler and more!
Jimmy also tried to make light of the situation by saying: “If you do not like Kanye West, make sure to tune in Friday night to not see him.”
Meanwhile, Kanye’s camp claims that the show was never a done deal: “We were never confirmed . . . We took extraordinary steps and worked directly with the show to make it happen. Logistics were insurmountable.”
