Should We Be Dragging Kanye West Through The Mud?

Kanye West has been on one lately, having gone on plenty of bizarre Twitter rants, sharing some very controversial opinions, and having meltdowns backstage at Saturday Night Live. The rapper has been acting out quite a bit more than usual lately with the release of his recent The Life Of Pablo album, as well as his Yeezy Season 3 line, which has resulted in a lot of media and critics to drag him through the mud. It’s clear that Kanye probably needs some psychological guidance, but is dragging him through the mud helping him or hurting him?

Kanye West’s antics

Audio was released of Kanye having a meltdown backstage at SNL, where he calls Taylor Swift a “fake a$$,” and curses out the show’s crew for not setting his stage up correctly. The audio shows him speaking pretty out of pocket, but it’s not too different from some of his other antics in the past, such as when he was backstage at the VMA’s and couldn’t open the show instead of Britney Spears. His tweets have also been full of crazy rants and opinions, with him even begging for money from rich CEO’s in order to help him with his $53 million debt he claims to have.

At the end of the day, many would agree that Kanye seems to be in a disturbed place, despite his success. It’s easy to judge him and call him a douchebag or any negative term because of his self-absorption, manic behaviors, and narcissistic actions, but many don’t realize that he really needs help. When Amanda Bynes went on a Twitter binge, posting tons of concerning tweets and opinions, including accusing her father of molesting her as a child, everyone urged her to get help. This girl accused her own father of touching her at a young age, which could put him behind bars, but luckily, she quickly admitted to making it up. When Kanye West has a public meltdown, calling Taylor Swift fake, tons of think pieces are released about him being an awful person that they wish would disappear. Why is there sympathy to seek help for Amanda Bynes, but not Kanye West? Is it because we are just as stubborn as Kanye is to Kanye?
