It seems Kanye West is plagued with bad controversies these days. After the news about him cutting Taylor Swift’s speech in VMA awards a few months ago, here comes another allegation regarding West having an outburst in an airplane earlier in the week.
The New York Post reported that West, on a post Grammy flight back from Los Angeles to New York, threw a fit when he and his assistant were seated in the business class instead of first class. He then refuted this incident in his blog. According to West,
“Man, this is not true. I really feel bad that people believe this kind of stuff or any random rumor that is taken as fact. This rumor is so funny, because I had a business-class seat and was actually offered a seat in first class. I had a friend who was sitting in coach and asked if they could bump him up to business instead of putting me in first. There was absolutely no altercation in any way.
“I could really care less about where I sit on the plane, I go right to sleep anyway,” he continued. “It’s hard to deal with the rumors sometimes. As a good person with a warm heart, it does bother me. I’m not bigger than feeling pain, embarrassment, stress and worry. Have you ever been lied about? How does it make you feel? You wanna tell everybody it’s not true, right?”
He concluded his long explanation with a thank you message for his fans, telling them how hard he is working for his next album and that he won’t let them down.
Let’s just hope that this is the end of the series of bad publicity for Kanye West.
