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.

1. Satirical news blog the Daily Currant published an “interview” with Kanye West yesterday.

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.
