Kanye West Thinks ‘People Are Committing Suicide’ Because of Social Media-Related Pressure
By: Sam Mr - September 24, 2018
“There are people who are committing suicide due to not getting enough likes,” Ye tweeted Saturday (Sept. 22). “Seeking validation in the simulation.”
Ye’s tweet links to a recently published New York Magazine article — titled “Kanye West Is Finally Right About Something: Twitter Should Lose Its Metrics” — that cites comments he made suggesting that social media platforms should shut off comments, likes, retweets, favorites on posted content.
Kanye also took aim at Drake and warned the rapper to not even use words that sounded similar to his wife’s name in songs.
“What I’m looking for, for my spirit to take accountability is, the fact that there’s people making rumors or thinking that you f**ked my wife and you not saying nothing and you carrying it like that. That don’t sit well with my spirit. You know if I had a girlfriend from Chicago her name was Renita and then you was married to Rihanna I wouldn’t make no song called ‘Riri.’ So when you’re like, ‘Ah I don’t know where it comes from!’ You’re too smart for that bro. You know where that comes from. Don’t make no record with nothing that could be confused.”
