Put so simply, this hit me between the eyes. Something to always keep in mind:
Kanye West really needs to take control of his ego because he’s turning into an ass. This sounds like an awful experience for these poor kids:
A charity basketball game didn’t go exactly as planned yesterday when Kanye West scored 106 points against a team of handicapped children in wheelchairs.
The game was a PR move intended to smooth over the controversy that erupted this week between Kanye and the disabled community. At one of his concerts recently West repeatedly asked wheelchaired fans to stand, and refused to apologize for his mistake afterwards.
The Basketball Wheelchair Charity for Cancer event pitted disabled middle school children against Kanye and his entourage. Kanye’s team seemed hesitant to play as hard since they were not also in wheelchairs as originally planned.
Organizers said, “Both teams were supposed to be playing in wheelchairs but Kanye’s camp said Mr. West would be playing the ‘normal’ way.” The kids were initially excited to play basketball with one of their favorite musicians but once the game started, they knew it wasn’t going to be fun.
Smith, who dreams of playing in the National Wheelchair Basketball Association when he grows up, noted, “He was supposed to be playing in a wheelchair too so it would be fair. I bet we would have won that way since we are use to playing like that. He told us ‘Why use a chair when I can use my legs?’ Our coach asked officials why he wasn’t playing fair but they said that’s how it was.”
