Kanye West is no stranger to mockery. He’s constantly ridiculed by comedians and social media users around the world. An entire episode of South Park was devoted to taking him down a peg or two.
Of course, while millions of people love to display their contempt for West, usually, he’s the one having the last laugh. After all, that publicity has resulted in millions of dollars going straight into the singer’s pocket.
However, there has to be a tipping point, right? Eventually, a critical mass of public contempt will force a star into irrelevancy. Just ask Spencer Pratt (if you remember him).
Of course, Kanye actually has talent, and is much more famous than Pratt, so it’s not a fair comparison. But still. Just look at this bizarre exchange involving Pizza Hut UK and West:
I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt… Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…— KANYE WEST (@kanyewest) February 14, 2016
@kanyewest Please give us a call about your job application. Thanks.— Pizza Hut UK (@pizzahutuk) February 15, 2016
If Pizza Hut offering you a job isn’t insulting enough, take a look at this tweet from Virgin Australia (which was later deleted):
The fact that the social media accounts of soulless corporations, which aren’t known for courting controversy, are mocking West can’t be a good sign.
