Kanye’s new wave of Twitter meltdowns have usually had a lifespan of about 2-3 hours over the course of one night. There’s a couple screenshots of random google searches, promise of a new album and potentially a tweet or two aimed at defaming Kris Jenner.
His latest, spanning over the course of about 48 hours, was mostly Kanye feuding with various record labels and major corporations. He also requested Drake call him a few times. Even posting a video of himself peeing on a Grammy wasn’t enough to get Kanye suspended.
The tweet that broke the camel’s back was apparently this one, where Kanye revealed the contact information for a Forbes’ editor and told people to call him because he was a white supremacist. That’s just it with Kanye, everyone has to keep their head on a swivel. Could be a billionaire record exec, Taylor Swift, his mother in law, or simply an inanimate statue.
I’m pretty sure most of us have become experts on ignoring him, desensitized to Kanye’s twitter rants. While one might expect to hear from someone like, I don’t know, his wife Kim Kardashian, maybe even Mason Disick, the last name on the list of people that will be Kanye’s liaison to the internet would have been Rick Fox. But here we are.
That being said, Rick Fox is one hell of a human being. Never heard a bad word about him. Cool enough to play for only the Celtics and the Lakers and have both fanbases love him. People forget he dated Bring It On’s Eliza Dushku for 5 years. I had no idea he was legit friends with Kanye West.
Honestly Rick Fox seems like more of a Jay-Z guy, possibly even like Ice Cube…but Kanye seems very random. Investigating this friendship I found a little more evidence than I ever remembered.
Here’s Rick and Ye helping out during a hurricane relief mission in the Bahamas.
And here is the happy couple randomly at a Chick-Fil-A with Steve Harvey?
Whatever he is going through, Kanye was still able to recognize that Rick Fox is someone you want to have on your side. Perhaps the greatest advocate anyone could have, I certainly will be waiting to hear from Rick next on Kanye’s status.
PS Kim has definitely drafted up the divorce papers, right? Just radio silent from the Kardashian/Jenner camp. They could not be socially distancing themselves farther away from Kanye–even North has got to be shaking her head. I am absolutely baffled Kris Jenner has not found a way to monetize this yet.
