Kanye West’s ‘online behavior’ has sparked concern among Grammy producers
Kanye “Ye” West was scheduled to take the Grammys stage on April 3, but has now been pulled from the schedule, according to The Blast.
A representative told the outlet that the Recording Academy “unfortunately” decided to rescind their invitation “due to what they feel is related to online behavior.”
Part of the reason Ye had to be removed, according to the outlet, is that the producers are concerned that he could have a showdown with Trevor Noah, who hosts the show again this year.
Noah previously compared Ye’s harassment of Kim Kardashian to a form of abuse, saying on his show that what the SKIMS founder is going through: “is terrifying to watch and highlights what so many women go through when they choose to walk away.”
While Ye hasn’t responded to the Grammy snub, she has had a rocky relationship with the Recording Academy. In September 2020, Ye posted a video of himself urinating on one of his 22 Grammy statuettes, according to the XXL Magazine.
He also criticized the award show for “being too white” in 2016, according to Rolling Stone.
