November 21—Various online hosts report Kanye West being admitted in a Los Angeles Hospital earlier today.
According to the reports, the incident took place while West was lodging at personal trainer Harley Pasternak's household, with further allegations of the GOOD Music boss “acting erratically”. When paramedics and the local police arrived, reports indicate West was hesitant upon medical admission but eventually complied and was handcuffed to a gurney whilst being transported to the hospital.
While other online sources appear in disarray regarding the event, NBC recently reported that West is “under observation,” and that the admission intends to “protect his own health and safety.” While further information is still a matter of speculation, NBC reassures no criminal activity was involved.
West's admission proceeded after a 17-minute “Kanye Rant” that occurred during his Friday night stop at Sacramento which ended with Yeezy dropping the mic and canceling the performance after vocalizing numerous complaints which include (not in its entirety) current issues with Jay Z and Beyonce. West canceled the rest of the tour earlier today. Apart from this, online reports link back to his recent pro-Trump on-stage monologues.
Needless to say, it is expected that a flood of media comments and responses will arise. Regardless, perhaps it is safe (and highly suggested) that we all conclude that after managing a massive, nationwide tour, anchoring a prominent clothing line, writing/producing new music everyday, managing a record label, as well as upholding responsibility as a father, and not to mention going through unfortunate events such as the recent incident in France, and now having to deal with an astonishing amount of criticism regarding his political speech—Just perhaps then, we can all assume that Kanye West is simply exhausted.
Amidst a growing number of opposition targeted at West, several have also took to Twitter in hopes of uplifting the situation. “No matter how you feel about [Kanye West] please keep him lifted in prayer”, posted comedian Rickey Smiley, resonant to actor Marlon Wayans' post:
“I know @kanyewest has said some off putting s—t lately but I pray for him his well being and his health. Get well bro. Always love,” following with another tweet, “And I hope u all pray for [him] too. He's not just an artist but he's a father, a son, a husband and above [all,] human. Get well soon.”
