He’s done it again folks! Kanye West suffered yet another epic meltdown backstage at ‘Saturday Night Live’ on Feb. 13, and fans are freaking out over the leaked audio tape! See their tweets here!
Kanye West, 38, may have officially lost it. In less than a week’s time, the rapper has taken to Twitter to rant about everything from “white publications” to Taylor Swift, 26, but it appears none of that even begins to compare to the insane, expletive-filled meltdown he had backstage at Saturday Night Live on Feb. 13. A secret audio recording of the rant has just been released and like us, fans are freaking over Ye’s crazy outburst. From the hilarious to the downright confused, see their best tweets below!
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, an audio recording of the incident was recently released to the public and believe us when we say it is intense! The drama apparently started when trapper reportedly got heated less than an hour before his performance, after staffers messed with his stage. “Look at that s*** they took my f***ing stage off’a SNL without asking me. I am bummed … If I am going to do this we are breaking the motherf***ing Internet,” he is heard screaming in the clip.
Of course, things didn’t just end there. After complaining about the stage Kanye then proceed to talk about, what else, himself of course, claiming that he was “50 percent more influential than Pablo Picasso” before randomly calling Taylor “a fake a**.” Needless to say, the audio tape has caused quite the firestorm on Twitter, as fans and critics alike have turned to the social media platform to join Kanye in freaking out about yet another one of his crazy rants. Here’s what they’ve had to say, along with the audio clip:

Im a fan of Kanye West's music. HOWEVER I'm not a fan of His ego – People go jokes about his mental capacity. The human brain is not a joke

@HuffingtonPost He needs professional help and/or psychoactive medication. There's clearly something profoundly wrong with the man.

After hearing those SNL tapes I legitimately think Kanye West has untreated emotional problems.

While Kanye’s rep has yet to release a statement, a source close to the rapper has since opened up about the freak out claiming, “He did not yell at SNL staff. This audio was secretly recorded while he was venting his frustration in a private moment with his team. He found out his stage design was changed and taken apart under the direction of the show’s lighting director without anyone’s approval. He had spent an entire day rehearsing and a lot of hard work into the performance. Dramatic set changes were made 30 minutes before going live. It should be understandable why he was upset after being completely blindsided. Later in the evening, after everything was fixed and following his performance, Kanye was seen hugging Lorne Michaels just before the goodnights and he stayed afterwards to chat with the staff and the cast, and thanked the producers on his way out the door.”
