Despite releasing an album some are calling the best of 2010, not every fan is ready to forgive all of Kanye West’s transgressions.
When it was announced that Kanye would be headlining Coachella this year, the reaction from fans was instantly negative.
Responses from the story on LA Times ranged from indifferent to inflammatory. “Great lineup this year…..but Kanye West is a definite deal killer for me, so me and my girlfriend won’t be going for the first time in 4 years,” wrote one disappointed fan.
Several other fans referred to West as a “deal breaker,” though there were some that defended him. “[T]ry listening to the album before you bash Kanye…Quentin Tarantino is a [jerk] too but his movies are still sick…it’s art, not real life,” wrote one reader.
This is not the first time Kanye has caused a stir at a festival. In 2008, the Chicago emcee was booed by fans when he came on stage two hours late.
