Kanye West now the latest celebrity to use the word ‘rape’ inappropriately
Note to celebrities: stop using the word “rape” when talking about the media. Kristen Stewart we get, but Kanye West, you’re smarter than this. Well…
In YET ANOTHER lengthy rant at one of his concerts, this time at the the Wireless Festival in London (where he was booed…AGAIN), Kanye West decided that breaking out the word rape to compare his treatment by the paparazzi was a “genius” idea.
Reports the Independent…
Discussing his concern for fellow star Britney Spears and the treatment she received at the hands of press photographers, West said: “I don’t care what you do in life, everybody needs a day off, everybody has the right to say, ‘You know what, I need a minute to breathe’.
“I want to bring my family to the movies without 30 motherf*****s following me. Everybody here, they like sex right? Sex is great when you and your partner are like, ‘Hey, this is what we both want to do’.
“But if one of those people don’t want to do that, what is that called? That’s called rape. That is called violation.
Actually Yeezus, the definition of rape is “the unlawful compelling of a person through physical force or duress to have sexual intercourse.” Something people like Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, and William Shakespeare probably would have known.
