What can one say? Thugs gotta thug.
Kanye West caused a ruckus in New York City after thousands attempted to cram into his last-minute show in Manhattan on Sunday night, forcing authorities to shut down the venue and cancel the gig.
Word got out via social media just after midnight – first revealed on Snapchat by rapper 2 Chainz – that West was performing a show of his new album The Life of Pablo at Webster Hall at 2am.
Within 30 minutes, thousands of New Yorkers wrapped around two blocks outside the venue near Union Square…
…thousands ran en masse towards the entrance, creating a dangerous crush. A girl squashed in the crowd was carried by friends and laid upon a parked car, her foot covered in blood. Fans standing on cars cracked one windscreen. To escape the free-for-all, fans jumped on to the metal covers of trash cans, fences of apartment buildings and the sign of a billiards hall across the street….
The roof of a passenger car in the street buckled and bent under the weight of people, while people stood on and hung off the hood and roof of two parked United States Postal Service vans. Fans from the venue’s earlier gig, Swedish EDM group Galantis, were still attempting to exit while thousands of West fans tried to push inside. –The Guardian
