Intl Incident? Kanye West, Noted Antisemite, Says He’ll Perform at Foot of Egyptian Pyramid Next Month


Let’s hope this isn’t true.

Kanye West has posted to Instagram that he’ll perform at the foot of an Egyptian pyramid next month.

It seems unwise of Egypt, in the middle of turmoil over Israel-Hamas-Gaza, would allow such a thing. Kanye is an avowed antisemite and self proclaimed admirer of Hitler. Why would Egypt want this?

Unfortunately, the Egyptian consulates in the US are closed for the day. But we’ll ask them tomorrow. But can you imagine the idiotic “Vultures 1” album — with four letter words and its antisemitic lyrics — broadcast from this historic spot? And Egypt approving it?
