18 Reasons We’re Thankful Kanye West Is An Idiot



Happy Thanksgiving, Break! Working here day in and day out is pretty fun and if there’s one thing we need to be thankful for it’s the people who make our jobs easier, the people who provide countless fails and ridiculous videos and stories we can post about that make us all laugh.  And so this Thanksgiving, we want to thank Kanye West for being so consistently reliable at being an idiot when he’s out in public.  Everything he does is worth a joke.  So as a gift to you this holiday, we compiled the ultimate “Kanye West is an Idiot” post featuring video, Twitter and interview highlights of just how ridiculous Mr. Kardashian truly is.  Enjoy!


#1 – What Kanye Thinks of Kanye

You may have forgotten, with all the Kanye news of the last year, that he’s been this way pretty much since he first appeared on the scene back in 2005/2006.  Just look at this video!


#2 – Kanye Loses a European Music Award

That’s Kanye after not winning an award, interrupting a band (pre-interrupting Taylor Swift), to criticize their video which he admits he hasn’t seen, to explain why his video, which cost a million dollars and had Pam Anderson, must have been better.  And how the show loses credibility by not giving it to him.  The other guys took it well, all things considered.


#3 – Kanye As A Boyfriend

[[contentId: 2545134| | style: height:240px; width:528px]]

Kanye takes to Twitter to let the world know just how great he is for Kim Kardashian.  Imagine being able to say this about any woman you don’t keep in some kind of primitive, 50’s-sphere of abuse.


#4 – Kanye Gets Political

Possibly the biggest mainstream moment in Kanye’s career up to this point, Kanye gets emotional, goes off script, accuses the President of racism, makes a debacle of a charity drive meant to help hurricane victims and simultaneously blows the minds of both Mike Myers and Chris Tucker.


#5 – Kanye’s Place in History

[[contentId: 2545135| | style: height:474px; width:600px]]

Kanye is of Biblical importance.


#6 – Kanye on Artistic Style

[[contentId: 2545136| | style: height:326px; width:679px]]

Nothing escapes his arrogant wrath, not even slouchy fonts.


#7 – Kanye Vs Bonnaroo

[[contentId: 2545178| | size: 75]]

In 2008, Kanye chose to be the headlining act of Bonnaroo, pushing his set back hours.  the result impressed no one and the crowd reacted with anger. Kanye has no idea how to deal with anger from others.


#8 – Kanye on the Arts

[[contentId: 2545137| | style: height:474px; width:600px]]

No one ever would have guessed.


#9 – Kanye Meets Taylor Swift (Extended Cut)

[[contentId: 2545125| | size: 75]]

Not only did Kanye interrupt Swift to let her know she wasn’t good enough for the award she was given, he went on a tear afterwards to express his digust including letting us know how this was all a racist conspiracy against him, which is why Pink got to perform a song he’s never heard of on the show and he didn’t get to perform his song.  Bet you weren’t sure how he could make an award for a female vocalist about himself.


#10 – Kanye Gets Political Part II

[[contentId: 2545138| | style: height:474px; width:600px]]

Kanye sees conspiracies around every corner.


#11 – Kanye Can’t See Around Corners

[[contentId: 2443530| | size: 75]]

It’s not that he hits the sign post (well, it is), it’s that he becomes enraged afterwards.


#12 – Kanye As a Boyfriend Part II

[[contentId: 2545139| | style: height:241px; width:500px]]

After dressing he gives her a sippy cup of mimosa and then it’s off for a day of buying handbags.


#13 – Kanye Gets Destroyed by Charlamagne Tha God

[[contentId: 2544920| | size: 75]]

In what seems to be the first case of this ever happening, someone questions Kanye to his face about his ego, his avarice an his whole image as a self-centered madman.  It goes well.


#14 – Kanye Meets Jimmy Kimmel

[[contentId: 2545140| | style: height:1048px; width:635px]]

But they’re cool now, don’t worry.


#15 – Kanye on True Pain

[[contentId: 2545141| ]]

You know if cloning worked, he’d be making out with his clone all the time.


#16 – Kanye Wants the Answers

[[contentId: 2544922| | size: 75]]

At about the 17:00 mark Kanye just stops trying and resorts to yelling, somehow relating the French Revolution and Harriet Tubman to fashion design and is unable to see how both insulting the people who run businesses and then asking why they don’t let him work for them is a bad idea.


#17 – Kanye on You

[[contentId: 2545142| | style: height:220px; width:524px]]

And thank God for that.


#18 – Kanye’s Final Word

[[contentId: 2545143| | style: height:474px; width:600px]]

Nailed it.
