Kanye West blasted Taylor Swift as a “fake ass” and called NBC staffers “white m———–s” during his epic meltdown backstage at “Saturday Night Live.”
In an audio clip exclusively obtained by Page Six, Kanye can be heard repeatedly yelling at “SNL” production staff, “Don’t f–k with me,” before branding Swift — whom he claims on his new album he made famous — a “fake ass.”
Then the hotheaded rapper went on to proclaim that he is “50 percent more influential” than legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, Pablo Picasso, St. Paul the Apostle — who was handpicked by Christ to deliver the gospel — and even the notorious drug runner Pablo Escobar.
Kanye can be heard ranting, “Are they f—–g crazy? Whoa by 50 percent [I am more influential than] Stanley Kubrick, Picasso, Apostle Paul, f—–g Picasso and Escobar. By 50 percent more influential than any other human being. Don’t f–k with me. Don’t f–k with me. Don’t f–k with me. By 50 percent dead or alive, by 50 percent for the next 1,000 years. Stanley Kubrick, ‘Ye.”
The rapper went on a bizarre tirade just minutes before last Saturday’s live show hosted byMelissa McCarthy. We’re told Kanye was upset that staffers ripped up some shiny flooring from his set because it was reflecting the stage lights, creating a confusing effect with the video wall behind him.
He can also be heard yelling, “Look at that s–t they took my f—–g stage off’a ‘SNL’ without asking me. I am bummed … If I am going to do this, we are breaking the m———–g Internet.”
Page Six exclusively reported that Kanye had the epic meltdown behind the scenes last Saturday and petulantly threatened to walk off the show during its live broadcast.
