Kanye West's Stupidity Hits a New High

Certain idiotic comments made by Kanye West during the taping of his VH1 Storytellers episode will not make it to air this Saturday because the production company has officially cut them out.

During the piece, Kanye trashed Radiohead and said the public should give Chris Brown "a break."

The taping, which took place on February 13th in Los Angeles, lasted three hours. The show's producers cut it to 90 minutes, after getting network approval to expand the episode from its usual one hour.

Some of West's juicer comments ended up on the cutting room floor, but executive producer Bill Flanagan has said that it's no political conspiracy.

From Yahoo:

"A lot of the stories that Kanye told went long," Flanagan told Reuters on Thursday. "I tried to get to the essence of his comments."

During the taping, according to a Reuters reporter, West was aggrieved that Radiohead singer Thom Yorke had allegedly snubbed him backstage at the Grammys five days earlier. That hurt, West told the audience, because he idolizes the British band, and considers it one of his few creative rivals.

"So when he performed at the Grammys, I sat the f--- down," West said.

A little later, West asked the crowd, "Can't we give Chris a break? ... I know I make mistakes in life." He was referring to R&B singer Chris Brown, who was arrested on the night of the Grammys on suspicion of beating his girlfriend Rihanna.

In the same context, West earned loud applause with his declaration: "Michael Jackson, amazing. Michael Phelps, amazing ... He's a real f---in' person; he makes mistakes," referring to the champion swimmer's recent bong pipe brouhaha.

VH1 has cleaned up those comments a bit, and it also included West's less-popular follow-up observation: "O.J. Simpson, amazing. Is he not? What he did, when he did, what he did. Was he not amazing though?"

This man really needs to consider an early retirement. Here's Ye doin' "Stronger" if you're interested...
