Kanye West booed for rant at London's Wireless Festival

Kanye West was booed at London's Wireless Festival last night (July 4) after going on an expletive-ridden rant.

The rapper, who was the headline act on the Main Stage at the Finsbury Park festival, ticked off the audience when he went on a lengthy diatribe, complaining about the media and his treatment by various companies.

According to Digital Spy, the Clique hitmaker said of the media: "I'm not particularly angry but they've taken the idea of celebrity and tried to make me seem like I'm stupid or something.

"People keep looking at me like I got a problem or something, like I'm not doing something I'm meant to. The lies, the media, they want to make you feel like you're less to them in their eye."

He later said that he has been the victim of "dehumanisation" from his critics, adding: "I'm not going to mention any names but... Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don't discriminate against me because I'm a black man making music."
