Kanye West has been slammed by the Human Right Foundation for his performance in Kazakhstan this past weekend. The HRF President said, “Kazakhstan is a human rights wasteland. The regime crushes freedom of speech and association, someone like Kanye, who makes a living expressing his views, would find himself in a prison under Nazarbayev’s rule. This particular dictator’s ruthless behavior includes kidnapping the families of dissidents to his rule and abusing judicial systems across the world in persecuting his opponents.” Well Ye was paid $3 million to perform at the wedding of President Nursultan Nazarbayev’s grandson.

Makes sense. Kanye makes money from expressing his views. Why would he support someone who doesn’t foster that freedom of speech. We’ll see if Kanye responds. Maybe he’ll go on an infamous twitter rant. We love when he does that!
