Chicago

Kanye West Booed at United Center

In one of the more bogus moves I’ve seen as of late, Kanye West was booed at last night’s Chicago Bulls/Miami Heat game at the United Center.  A home game, OBVS.  Various publications are reporting that Ye was booed upon arriving late to the game, but I truly believe it was just that good old Chicago hate shining through.  Kanye West, Don C and Virgil Abloh took a late afternoon flight in from NYC just to take in the high profile game (Chicago was victorious), that also featured our newly elected Mayor Rahm Emanuel in attendance. 

I don’t believe I’ve ever seen Ye sitting courtside at a home game prior to this one, so I thought it was dope when TNT panned to him and Don  – that is until seconds later when the boos began to echo from the rafters of the United Center.  Is that any way to treat one of Chicago’s greatest talents?  What a terrible homecoming.  You, the fans at the United Center, win the FSD Bogus Award for the week.  If you’re still salty about Taylor Swift, get the fuck over it.
