Kanye West gets booed at Bonnaroo
"It's not the stage hands' fault; that stage was set up for well over an hour before Kanye decided to grace us with his presence."
Although the rapper managed to kick off his show on time this year, apparently that didnt matter much to some folks in attendance. According to people who attended the event, Kanye received plenty of boos at various points during the performance. This probably wasnt the sort of reception West had anticipated.
Entertainmentwise reported that Kanye received quite a few boos when he announced the release of an upcoming single. However, reports of the backlash escaped most mainstream outlets that recently covered Wests set.

Both Spin and Rolling Stone made no mention of the audiences response to Kanye West. However, quite a few people who saw the guy perform Friday evening began tweeting about the disrespect he received shortly after the set wrapped up.

According to the Liberty Voice, Kanye West performed in front of approximately 100,000 people during his 21-song set at Bonnaroo. While quite a few of those individuals were there to see him do his thing, apparently more than a handful just wanted to show how much they hated the guy. Also in attendance was Kim Kardashian, who seemed more than willing to show off her body to everyone with functional pair of eyes.
Although Kanye got booed during his performance, apparently that didnt stop the rapper from unleashing one of his infamous on-stage rants. In addition to taking shots at the media, Westdiscussed how much time and energy he puts into creating his music.
I want yall to know that anytime Im in the studio, make a record, make a T-shirt, I give it everything I got. And when I talk that s**t, its so you can talk that s**t. If youre a fan of me, youre a fan of your motherf**kin self. You can go out and do anything, West told the crowd at one point during the show.
