Kanye West is regarded as a genius when it comes to being a businessman, as the rapper has built his own empire from scratch. However, he falls far behind when it comes to releasing music on time. A recent rumor regarding his upcoming ‘Donda’ album was also blamed on hackers. Now it seems West has landed himself in hot water once again.
Kanye West will be unveiling the final cut of his ‘Donda’ album in Chicago this week. According to the New York Post, Kanye West’s upcoming event in Chicago’s Soldier Field will not require negative COVID-19 tests or vaccines for entry.
Chicago Park District spokeswoman Michele Lemons also revealed that Soldier Field will only admit 38,000 people instead of its normal 63,000 capacity.
“Kanye West’s performance is one of many examples that show that Chicago can be open and safe at the same time,” Lemons said, according to the Chicago Tribune. “We have worked with Soldier Field on COVID-19 safety protocols, as we have other venues including Wrigley and Guaranteed Rate Fields, and feel this event can be safely held with the proper mitigation efforts in place.”
Due to this, several fans took to Twitter and put Kanye West on blast for being so careless and not caring about the seriousness of COVID-19.
There’s nothing money can’t buy, that’s why @chicagosmayor is allowing a super spreader event for Kanye. 38,000 person capacity with no vaccine or testing requirements. How dare you preach mitigation and safety and allow blatant ignorance to run amok? Shameful. @DrArwady Why?
Bro, this nigga Kanye is having a listening party for his album in soldier field and admitting 30k people with no mask or vaccine restrictions and the city is just letting this shit happen.
And I love what he says about heaven. Kanye, sweetie, if I don’t make it to heaven, it won’t be because of a vaccine. It will be because I am a heathen
Wait, Kanye said the covid vaccine shot was the mark of the beast?!? But that’s not how… the Bible says …. Didn’t that fool already …. You know what… Chile hotepetry is it’s own damn pandemic. You can be rich and brilliant and still just be loud, ashy and wrong.
He never stops being a jerk does he. Kanye West listening party at Chicago’s Soldier Field will have no vaccine or COVID-19 test requirement but lower capacity
The album has a new release date of August 27th but it is also likely that fans will not necessarily hold their breath as the album has been delayed multiple times already. As fans are getting impatient, we will have to wait and see if Kanye West finally drops the ‘Donda’ album.
