More: Kanye West Calls Instagram Owner Mark Zuckerberg “Masa,” Says Must Get Contracts Fair or “Die Trying”


At about 7:20pm tonight Kanye West posted to Instagram (italics are mine):
The entire entertainment business changes noooooowwww on Donda in Jesus name #lovespeech I was told to remove a word from this post and I did Please oh please masa Zuckerberg Don’t cancel my wittle black voice of opinion I know I don’t say everything #redmedia forces people to think feel and say My shadow banned instagram is all I got left

West is mocking, not seeking contrition. He is completely panicked and rightly so. Someone in his camp has to reach him. He attaches a text message with someone who suggest he leave the US to calm things down. West writes: “I’m staying in America. I gotta get the Jewish business people to make the contracts fair. Or die trying.”
