Kanye West Reacts To Being Severely Censored At The Billboard Music Awards

Fans complained that Kanye’s performance was so censored, they couldn’t hear entire sentences and his words kept getting bleeped….
His statement reads…

Kanye West was grossly over-censored at the Billboard Music Awards,’ the statement released by his publicist said. ‘Non-profane lyrics such as ‘with my leather black jeans on’ were muted for over 30 second intervals. As a result, his voice and performance were seriously misrepresented.’
It is ridiculous that in 2015, unwarranted censorship is something that artists still have to fight against,’ the statement continued. ‘Although West was clearly set up to face elements beyond his control during the live broadcast, he would like to apologize to the television audience who were unable to enjoy the performance the way he envisioned.’

I guess he recently employed a publicist because in the past, Kanye would have addressed this the Kanye way..
