Kanye West's Worst Public Outbursts

Kanye West is no stranger to controversy. Kanye's rants and outbursts are almost as legendary as his catalog and production credits. The rapper gets in trouble for his unfiltered comments, and these public events have landed him in hot water.

Any person, place, or thing can feel Kanye's wrath, which has caused him many problems. Just ask Mike Myers. When the duo appeared together asking for money during the Hurricane Katrina pledge drive, West went off-script when he said that President Bush didn't care about black people. Myers had to stand next to Kanye the entire time with nowhere to run. One would have thought that Kanye learned his lesson after his rant in front of the whole country, but it was just the beginning.

Throughout the years, more and more controversies have popped up due to his rants. He's walked out of awards shows, cursed off fans, and bashed contemporaries over the years. Kanye's most famous outburst, however, was directed at Taylor Swift. Though he was sort of well-intentioned (his excuse was that he attempted to explain why his pal Beyoncé should have won the VMA instead of the country sweetheart) it just created another controversy when the public was already on Kanye overload. In 2018, Kanye acknowledged that he is bipolar, which he used to help explain his volatile behavior.

Here are the most controversial Kanye eruptions... that is, until the next big one occurs.
