Kanye West Barred From Grammys Performance Over ‘Concerning’ Behavior
Kanye West, who legally changed his name to Ye, has reportedly been prohibited from performing at the Grammy Awards in the wake of his actions following his split with Kim Kardashian.
The Blast, citing “insiders,” reported that one of the final straws was actually Ye’s online interaction with “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah. Noah had called Ye’s continual harassment of Kardashian “terrifying to watch,” and Ye responded by attacking Noah with a racial slur on Instagram, a move that got the rapper banned from the platform for 24 hours.
Noah is slated to be hosting this year’s Grammy Awards, while Ye is up for five awards, including album of the year for “Donda.”
