Small-town police chief posts open letter to Kanye West on Facebook, calls him out for comparing himself to police, soldiers.
Yeezus wept. Well, he pouted anyway. (Screencap via SaturdayNightOnline)
Everyone in show business, stop calling yourselves soldiers, okay?
Tom Cruise compared himself being on a movie set to being deployed in Afghanistan, and he got smacked down by Mark Wahlberg (he's the only one in Hollywood who's as short as Cruise so everyone agreed it was a fair fight).
And last week in an interview with SaturdayNightOnline, Kanye included among his usual litany of self-praise a comparison between himself and police officers and soldiers.
"I'm just giving of my body on the stage and putting my life at risk, literally. That mountain goes really, really high. And if I slipped … You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and I'm like ‘Wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something."
Literally? By "literally," do you mean "figuratively?" Like, the opposite of "literally?"
Now Kanye West is being given a talking-to for his over-estimation of himself, and he doesn't even get the common courtesy of being scolded by a fellow celebrity, though Brimfield, OH police chief David Oliver is at least very popular on Facebook (not to mention being author of the book No Mopes Allowed). Last night, Oliver took to his department's Facebook page with an open letter to reassure Kanye that what he does is actually pretty safe and he shouldn't be so worried for his life.
