At his latest event held at Chicago’s Soldier Field, the performer brought out on stage a man who is currently embroiled in multiple sexual assault cases, and another who made inaccurate and altogether homophobic comments within the past month.
Kanye West seems like he was looking to stir up a reaction from people after bringing out his latest guests on stage. It was all part of his 'Donda' listening party on Thursday night for his new album.
Two of the most harmful people in the music business joined the rapper for the event, which was live-streamed by Apple Music.
Earlier this year, a fourth woman came forward to accuse Marilyn Manson of sexual assault, claiming she was subjected to a number of alarming situations from the performer, including rape, sexual assault, bodily harm and unlawful imprisonment.
Within the past month, DaBaby was dropped from a number of music festivals around the world following his homophobic speech at a music festival in Miami. The rapper spouted inaccurate information about people living with HIV, which led to public backlash, and his later response did little to improve his position.
According to those in attendance at the Kanye West 'Donda' listening party, the performers joined him on stage on the porch of a replica of his childhood home. While Manson allegedly just stood there during the time on stage, DaBaby joined West for a verse that was initially performed by Jay-Z.
The evening only appeared to get even more bizarre after these two guest appearances, with West lighting himself on fire, and his ex-wife Kim Kardashian West appearing in a wedding dress.
'Donda', Kanye West's tenth studio album, is due for release on September 3.
