Kanye West went on yet another Twitter rant that he later deleted all evidence of. What sets this one apart from others though is that, as well as firing shots at his mother-in-law, Shia Laboeuf and his wife, he claimed the film Get Out was about him.
Concerns are growing that the rapper genuinely isn’t well as his first presidential campaign rally in South Carolina on Sunday night made headlines for all of the wrong reasons, and in a now-deleted Twitter rant, he stoked the flames of those worried some more.
Amongst many other things, Kanye West recently claimed that the film Get Out was about him as he tried to pick fights with his extended family, his wife and Vogue editor Anna Wintour. It was a truly bizarre rant that has since been deleted, and one that showed the disturbing side of the obviously gifted musician.
He also claimed that Kim Kardashian was trying to have him see a doctor after his infamous South Carolina rally…
So much went on in this Twitter rant last night that it’s almost hard to know which bit to focus on. Since they’re now deleted, I’ll write out a few of the tweets he composed last night…
“Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up with a doctor”
“Everybody knows the movie get out is about me”
“Kriss don’t play with me you and that calmye are not allowed around my children Ya’ll tried to lock me up”
“Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday”
“If I get locked up like Mandela Ya’ll will know why”
“Anna Wintour always showed me love but when I told her I was going to GAP she looked at me like I was crazy Then she called back kissing my ass”
“Shia was deposed to do the first YZY GAP shoot and he never showed up”
“I put my life on the line for my children that North’s mother would never sell her sex rape”
“I put my life on my God that Norths mom would never photograph her doing playboy and that’s on God I’m at the ranch … come and get me”
It was a pretty alarming rant and by all accounts he probably agrees, since he deleted the tweets.
Speaking of the worries surrounding him, a source told Page Six:
“[Kim] has desperately been trying to help Kanye, keep him calm and prevent him from having any public meltdowns. The family believe he is having a bipolar episode. He won’t take medications because he feels they make him less creative“.
It is a real shame.
To paraphrase Kanye himself, I miss the old Kanye.
