Kanye West Pulled From Grammys Due To ‘Concerning Online Behavior’
The Recording Academy has banned Kanye West from performing at the 2022 Grammys. According to The Blast, an insider said that the decision to ban the rapper and fashion designer from the show was based off of his recent Instagram activity, which included Ye calling Trevor Noah a c**n. Noah is hosting the Grammys for the second year in a row.
Noah responded to the news, saying, “I said counsel Kanye not cancel Kanye.” A source also told CNN, “Trevor never asked the Grammys to ban Kanye from performing. He was not offended by Kanye’s Instagram post and Trevor responded on Instagram. The notion that Trevor or his team asked the Grammys to ban Kanye is ridiculous.”
West had used a racial slur to call out Noah in a post on Instagram, which led to him being suspended from the platform for 24 hours.
The 64th annual Grammy Awards are set to air Sunday, April 3rd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
