What we know: Kanye West is an ass.
- A radio station in Detroit says it’s pulling Kanye West songs off their airwaves after his controversial remarks about slavery earlier this week.
- 105.1 The Bounce, a throwback Hip Hop and R&B station, announced Thursday morning they won’t be playing his music anymore. They went live on Facebook while Shay Shay and BiGG discussed the issue on their morning show.
- BiGG said “As of this moment, we will #MuteKanye on the Morning Bounce and we will not play any of Kanye West’s music, music that he’s featured on, music that he raps on, none of his throwbacks. We are banning Kanye West’s music from this radio station…”
- Shay Shay said she’d like to take the small platform their radio station has and use it to discontinue giving Kanye his platform.
“I think it’s reckless and irresponsible to use your platform in this type of way,” she said, addressing Kanye. “I get that I’m a small fish in the ocean, but on my platform I feel like it’s important to make a statement.”
