Kanye West feels “murdered” by South Park swipe
West wrote on his blog in his customary all-caps style that the long-running animated satire “murdered” him, but that it was funny.
“It hurts my feelings, but what can you expect from ’South Park’!” he wrote. “I actually have been working on my ego though.”
“… I just wanna be a doper person, which starts with me not always telling people how dope I think I am,” West wrote. “I just need to get past myself, drop the bravado and just make dope product.”
On Wednesday night’s show, “South Park” portrayed West as a man who could not understand a joke about “gay fish.” His animated character’s response: “Hey, man. I’m a genius. I’m the most talented musician in the world. If I was a homosexual or a fish, I would know.” By the end of the show, the makers of “South Park” had brought West back to the screen as (what else?) a gay fish. The show from Trey Parker and Matt Stone is a staple of cable channel Comedy Central.
And by the way, no one should expect West to start another rap war. In his blog, he described rapper Lil Wayne as “the nicest guy,” implying that the New Orleans-born Wayne is someone to emulate.
