The Latest Piece Of Brilliance From Kanye West: ‘Jesus Tok’, A Christian Version Of TikTok

These days, I’ve got to be extremely careful about what I say about Kanye West, as my growing disdain for the man has turned me into such a wildcard that I now must enact proactive strategies to make sure I keep all of my articles about him above the belt. Deep breaths, count to ten, all that bullshit.

Kanye West is a guy who made four great albums a decade ago and has parlayed that success into a de-facto get-out-of-jail-free card. Imagine doing what he did to Taylor Swift in any other professional setting. Imagine being at the office and snatching the mic away from your female co-worker. You’d be fired yesterday. Why does Kanye get away with that? He can perform in authoritarian Kazakhstan, suggest Bill Cosby was innocent, state that slavery was a choice, and that Harriet Tubman never freed the slaves, and make a mockery of our democracy, and no one bats an eyelash because, why? Because he yells about being a genius? Because My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is a classic? Because he claims to have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder? A diagnosis which he subsequently found a way to profit off of, by the way:

The latest piece of brilliance from the former rapper is what he calls “JESUS TOK”, “A CHRISTIAN MONITORED VERSION THAT FEELS SAFE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN AND THE WORLD” (because, you know, typing in all caps is something that all reasonable people do):

“A VISION JUST CAME TO ME… JESUS TOK. I WAS WATCHING TIK TOK WITH MY DAUGHTER AND AS A CHRISTIAN FATHER I WAS DISTURBED BY A LOT OF THE CONTENT BUT I COMPLETELY LOVED THE TECHNOLOGY,” West wrote on Twitter.

“WE PRAY WE CAN COLLABORATE WITH TIK TOK TO MAKE A CHRISTIAN MONITORED VERSION THAT FEELS SAFE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN AND THE WORLD. IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.”

The day the Kardashians and Kanye West are no longer in the public spotlight, the better. Enough of these people.
