Kanye West’s Glastonbury Show Interrupted By Stage Crasher [VIDEO]
The prankster, who was wearing a “Lee-zus” T-shirt, jumped onstage while Yeezy was performing “Black Skinhead” and started making gestures at the Chicago rhymer. The man was later identified as English comedian Simon Brodkin, who performs as a character called Lee Nelson. After being promptly ejected, he tweeted: “Some people were saying Kanye shouldn’t headline Glastonbury so I thought I’d give him a hand.”
Apparently, the comedian’s stunt was in response to a fan’s petition to remove West from the Glastonbury lineup and be replaced by a rock band. Although 150,000 people signed the petition, festival organizers stood by their decision to have West as the headliner.
The Glastonbury Festival is a star-studded music festival that’s held every year in England. Prior to West's performance, his good friend Pharrell Williams delivered an exciting set that included a special encore of "Happy."
In the end, it looks like the fans, and maybe even Lee-zus, was happy that Kanye was performing at the Glastonbury Festival.
