A new video has made its way onto the internet which was reportedly made by the “hacktivist” group, Anonymous. Kanye West is their new target, and in the NSFW video, they cite various reasons why West is in their crosshairs. However, the credibility of the video is still up in the air. @YourAnonNews, a Twitter account associated with Anonymous, denied any involvement in the video and urged the media to keep them out of the issue. But considering how Anonymous works, it’s hard to verify whether or not anyone is involved in the group.

The video was uploaded last month, at the height of Kanye’s Grammy controversy, but it only became viral this week. The video opens with footage of Kanye’s infamous E! News interview where he blasts Beck, asking him to give his award to Beyonce.
“You’re like a spoiled child in a grown man’s body who is ready to set off a boiling temper tantrum the very moment you don’t get all the things you want,” the masked figure in the video said. “I bet your wife is subconsciously fed up with raising a little boy for a husband and I am sure your mother would have been so proud of your behavior.”
The masked figure also criticized West’s wife, Kim Kardashian, for posing nude for Paper magazine. The masked figure insinuated that Kim’s nude photos and sex tape will have repercussions for their daughter, North West, in the future.
“Really, Mr. West, is this the best you could do with so many talented, artistic women across countries? By approving this irresponsible behavior, you are accepting the reality that one day, your daughter will face the repercussions of this photo with classmates in school,” the figure said.
The figure also said that Anonymous used to respect Kanye, but his recent behavior has proven troublesome because he’s been misusing his fame and influence.
“We admired your art, creativity, original vision and nonconformity in your work,” the masked person said. “But now, Anonymous has targeted you here with this message because you disgrace what we stand for. When you self-proclaim to be a modern Renaissance prodigy in your radio and TV interviews, with such an obnoxious history, it pisses us off.”
The masked figure ended the video with something that could be seen as a threat, saying, “Anonymous is sounding off the new Renaissance era this year for humanity and if you don’t shape up, then your legacy will not be included. Poor examples such as yourself will not be tolerated any more in the new age.”
