KANYE WEST CLAIMS HE'S BEING BLACKLISTED BY VENUES: 'YOU KNOW WHY THAT IS'

Kanye West has claimed that he is being blacklisted by concert venues despite him being one of the biggest musicians in the world.

The controversial rapper made the allegations in a social media clip which surfaced on Tuesday (Feburary 6), which he then followed with a series of posts on Instagram.

"We just sold out the United Center in seven minutes and I just wanted to express to everybody out there to see if anybody can help with this," West says in the video. "It's the only arena I had access to in the past year. And when I call, people say there's no availables for me and you know why that is. If there's anybody out there that can help with this, please do."

West also wrote on Instagram: "I have not been allowed to perform in a year feels like the Elvis Presley movie." He then proceeded to plug his booking agency.








West's plea did not fall on deaf ears, as he soon posted screenshots of text messages documenting attempts to get a tour booked, including a discussion with his agent in which she claimed to have received "crazy amounts of non stop calls from all over the world."

One person who claimed to be able to help was Freddie Gibbs who told West he could set up a concert in San Diego at Petco Park.

The screenshots also revealed attempts by West to get booked at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, New York and iconic international landmarks such as the Giza Pyramids in Egypt, the Great Wall of China and on Corcovado mountain in Brazil.

West also revealed he had a $2.5 million offer to perform in Hong Kong and that he was planning concerts in Australia and Hawaii.

The reason West implies he can't book a tour is likely his history of antisemitic comments and association with Holocaust deniers such as Nick Fuentes.

In December, West released a statement in Hebrew in which he apologized to the Jewish community for the damage his words and actions have caused.

"I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for any unintended outburst caused by my words or actions. It was not my intention to hurt or demean, and I deeply regret any pain I may have caused."

"I am committed to starting with myself and learning from this experience to ensure greater sensitivity and understanding more in the future. Your forgiveness is important to me, and I am committed to making amends and promoting unity."

The apology received a mixed response from the Anti-Defamation League, while media personality Peter Rosenberg branded the statement "inauthentic" and suggested it was driven by ulterior motives on Ye's part.
