Sources say Kanye West was transported to a LA hospital and is currently “under observation” late Monday after a bizarre series of rants and the abrupt cancellation of his national tour.
The hospital stay followed a week of strange incidents during which the rapper publicly threw shade at Beyoncé and Jay Z and retroactively endorsed President-elect Donald Trump while admitting that he didn’t bother to vote.
A source familiar with the case said Los Angeles police responded to a medical welfare call about 1:20 p.m. (4:20 p.m. ET). No criminal activity was involved; the decision to hospitalize West was for his own health and safety, the sources said. West’s concert promoter, Live Nation, said earlier in the day that the remaining dates of his Saint Pablo Tour had been called off. No reason was given. The cancellation of West’s tour comes on the heels of a rough week for the rapper, who has made controversial statements and feuds with fellow celebrities a centerpiece of his art and persona.

As our reader notes, “I have a video of 5 city blocks on the West side of Chicago lined with busses from Wisconsin (Badger Bus Lines) bringing in protestors. Continue reading

ABC News got caught faking a crime scene for a live TV report. ABC reporter, Linsey Davis, appeared to be reporting from a crime scene related to Kala Brown, the woman who was found being held against her will in a South Carolina storage container by sex offender, Todd Kohlhepp.

You can clearly see the yellow tape was tied to production equipment to give the illusion Davis was reporting right from the scene of the investigation. Continue reading
