No joke here. Kanye West admitted to the crowd during a series of rants at the Made in America festival in Philadelphia on Saturday, Aug. 30, that he confronted comedian Jay Pharoah after his spoof at the 2014 MTV VMAs.
"They want to make a joke out of how hard we work," Kim Kardashian’s husband said while on stage at the Jay Z hosted event referring to Pharoah and a recent "South Park" spoof. “It's fine and all funny and everything, but don't distract from our vision. It's not a joke what we do up here. This music that we do is not a joke. What we do culturally is not a joke."
The rapper went on to tell the crowd that he called Pharoah after the "SNL" actor’s skit went down at the Aug. 24 award show. "I called Jay Pharoah right after the MTV awards," West said. "I said, 'I appreciate your show, but let me tell you about my story. Let me tell you about what I went through to get to that position’ … So we ain't gonna have no black comedians going onstage spoofing the people that's working hard, and helping the next man out.”
North West’s dad’s rant also included his relationship with Kardashian.
"For me to be in a very publicized interracial relationship is not a joke,” he told the crowd of his new marriage. “It's something that should be treated with respect cause we’re all in this together.”
