Kanye West Cancels Remainder of Tour after Long Election Rant

Kanye West canceled a concert in Los Angeles on Sunday night hours after going on a rant about President-elect Donald Trump, Jay-Z, and Beyonce and cutting short a show in Sacramento.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the show was canceled three hours before the show was set to begin at The Forum. Refunds would be made available, the venue tweeted. West’s label, Ticketmaster nor Live Nation have given any explanation for the cancellation.

The latest drama comes after West cut short is Sacramento show after going on a wild rant about Trump and others. Captured on video by concert-goers Saturday night in Sacramento, West in an over 10-minute tirade told the audience he was on his “Trump (expletive) tonight.” He talked about Beyonce, Jay Z, Hillary Clinton, Mark Zuckerberg, the radio and MTV at the stop of his Saint Pablo Tour.

Saturday’s outburst and truncated show became a hot topic on Twitter and other social platforms Sunday morning, as amateur videos circulated of West’s rant where, among other things, he said he was hurt because he heard Beyonce refused to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards unless she won Video of the Year over him. He also urged her husband Jay Z to call him and “talk to me like a man.”
