Kanye West responds to 'South Park' mockery

Kanyegayfish_lWhat, you thought Kanye West wasn’t going to say anything after South Park accused him of being an egomaniacal gay fish (or whatever) last night? Of course he struck back today with a 234-word all-caps rant on his blog. But wait! Kanye’s latest post is free of the unhinged rhetoric we’ve come to expect when he addresses his detractors. Not a single "SQUID BRAINS" or "You’re f—ing trash" in sight. In fact, Kanye calls the South Park gag "PRETTY FUNNY" and admits that the "CRAZY EGO" he’s known for might have outlasted its usefulness: "I GOT A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE I’M NOT ACTUALLY AHUGE DOUCHE BUT I’M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE. I’M SURE THE WRITERS AT SOUTHPARK ARE REALLY NICE PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE." Wow. He even embedded a YouTube clip of the very South Park episode that mocked him! (That clip has since been yanked from YouTube, but here’s the original in case you missed it.) Talk about killing ‘em with kindness.

The whole post is a fascinating look at where Kanye’s head is at these days. As far as I’m concerned, he deserves points for rising above criticisms with humility and honesty. Check it out and let us know: What do you think of his new tone?

    Do you like fishsticks?
    So you like to put fishsticks in your mouth?
    …You’re a gay fish.

    Still think he’s douchey….loved when Cartman called him Puff daddy!

    He could start by turning off the “CAPS LOCK” key.

    That was such a funny show, and the ending reminded me of “The Incredible Mr. Limpet.” That’s great that Kanye West took it in stride.

    ^What are you talking about?????
    First of all and one who writes in all caps should be slapped (it’s just so ignorant)!
    Next, Kanye might be a crazy ego maniac, but he’s not stupid. If he got publicly angry he would reinforce the shows portrayal of him. Regardless I think writing an article about how Kanye is above it and that this is “fascinating look at where Kanye’s head is at these days” is ridiculous.
    Your a puppet and Kanye is pulling the strings.

    Maybe the last vestiges of youth and immaturity, coupled with a few life-changing events has made for a more wise, mature man. More power to him to live life well.
    The episode was funny as h***!

    Kanye is a douchbag. The worst waste of sperm. He’s stupid, but lucky so far with his nonexistent talent. What he did at Bonnaroo Music Festival last year was reprehensible. Everyone booed and threw trash. What a hemmorhoid.

  • Whine-yay

    Fishdicks in your mouth Kanye. You ARE a gay fish.

  • Hardyman1966

    Who’s Kanye?

  • James

    Kanye actually accepting critcism?
    This is most certainly a sign of the Apocolypse.

  • James

    White people amuse me

  • Buffy Freak

    The epsiode was great but I loved the thrashing of the extremely unfunny Carlos Mencia as much as the Kayne stuff. Maybe Carlos will steal kayne’s comments about the episode?

  • Alejandro

    Dear god…an alien has killed the real Kanye West and is now impersonating him…is anyone complaining though?
