Kanye West was reportedly booed during his set at Bonnaroo on Friday (June 13).
Although the rapper managed to kick off his show on time this year, apparently that didn’t matter much to some folks in attendance. According to people who attended the event, Kanye received plenty of boos at various points during the performance. This probably wasn’t the sort of reception West had anticipated.
Entertainmentwise reported that Kanye received quite a few boos when he announced the release of an upcoming single. However, reports of the backlash escaped most mainstream outlets that recently covered West’s set.
Here’s footage of Kanye West getting booed. Warning: There’s all kinds of foul language in this clip, so proceed with caution.
Both Spin and Rolling Stone made no mention of the audience’s response to Kanye West. However, quite a few people who saw the guy perform Friday evening began tweeting about the disrespect he received shortly after the set wrapped up.

According to the Liberty Voice, Kanye West performed in front of approximately 100,000 people during his 21-song set at Bonnaroo. While quite a few of those individuals were there to see him do his thing, apparently more than a handful just wanted to show how much they hated the guy. Also in attendance was Kim Kardashian, who seemed more than willing to show off her body to everyone with functional pair of eyes.

Although Kanye got booed during his performance, apparently that didn’t stop the rapper from unleashing one of his infamous on-stage rants. In addition to taking shots at the media, Westdiscussed how much time and energy he puts into creating his music.
“I want y’all to know that anytime I’m in the studio, make a record, make a T-shirt, I give it everything I got. And when I talk that s**t, it’s so you can talk that s**t. If you’re a fan of me, you’re a fan of your motherf**kin’ self. You can go out and do anything,” West told the crowd at one point during the show.
