Did you see this? It has been buzzing for a couple of weeks now, but finally erupted over the last couple day.
It is alleged that the hacktivist group known as “Anonymous” let loose on a several minute tirade against Kanye West, and the video is laden with pretty simple truths: Kanye is a really talented dude, but he’s also the definitive spoiled brat within the world of art, creativity and entertainment.
However, the question remains: Was this video really made/sponsored/supported by Anonymous? Really, anyone could be “in” Anonymous, but they–if it is a they–are the most hidden-in-plain-sight secret society the world has ever known. They’re often responsible for outing the government, when big brother tries to cover up anything, and they’ve likely encouraged government secrecy to be put down on paper with pencil.
Still, would the organization direct its ire toward Kanye West based on ideology? The group seems to be big on personal liberty, and small government influence, so it’s a little odd that they’d come after Kanye because he’s doing what he wants to do.
In fact, a Twitter handle known to be associated with Anonymous recently dropped a quick morsel following the viral nature of the Kanye video. “Please keep us out of this bulls**t.” Seemingly denying the group’s involvement.
Either way, the video reams Kanye (more so than Kim) for being a spoiled brat, and not using his wealth and power for good. It suggests that Kanye is wholly self-serving, and needs to be dropped down a few rungs on the ladder of success. It even drags Kanye’s late mother into the discussion. Harsh.
Right now, it seems this was more someone with a personal vendetta–Guy Fawkes mask pun intended–using the Anonymous moniker with the hope of going viral. Heck, it could have been Kanye doing it to himself for all we really know. There’s no such as bad publicity. If not, I suppose we can expect more dirt on Kanye in the near future if he doesn’t “change his ways.”
