Everyone Just Got Mad At Kanye West For No Reason

A lot of people on Twitter fell for the Daily Currant’s fake interview with him.

In it, Kanye is quoted saying, “Nelson Mandela did a lot of good work, don’t get me wrong. But I think I’m on track to do something even bigger.

“I liberate minds with my music. That’s more important than liberating a few people from apartheid or whatever.”

2. He is also quoted claiming to be “well on [his] way towards being the next great black leader.”

“Not to mention I have a bigger market than he ever did.

“Mandela was working in South Africa, which has, like what, six people? I started my magic here in the USA and then I took my business global.

“Worldwide baby.”

3. A lot of people didn’t notice that the interview was made up. And those people got very angry.

4. They took to Twitter to express their disgust.

I HATE @kanyewest as a person! Always have and always will.
