It’s been an interesting week for Kanye West to say the least—some of it good, some not so good, and some things you just don’t know what the heck to think. And that’s saying a lot for someone who we’ve become used to doing the unexpected. Not surprisingly, the rapper’s latest antics have become the butt of a lot of jokes.

Kristen Bell and Mila Kunis, for instance, had a little fun at Yeezy’s expense. After a Twitter rant where Kanye asked his fans to pray for him because he is in $53 million of personal debt, Bell took to Instagram to post a picture with her Bad Moms co-stars, Mila Kunis and Kathryn Hahn—the three ladies are each holding a tall lighter with a solemn look on their face. The caption is just one hashtag that reads, “#prayingforKanye. And while Kanye isn’t literally in that much debt, it was still funny to see the reactions to another epic flow of tweets from the controversial rap star.

Kanye also had some celebratory moments worth noting. His Yeezy Season 3 fashion line with Adidas was released during New York Fashion Week. Kanye was also able to sell out Madison Square Garden for what was touted as both a fashion show and a listening party for his newest album The Life of Pablo (TLOP).


That was followed by a Valentine’s Day release of TLOP, which was and still is only available for streaming on the streaming service Tidal. You would think all of this would leave Kanye in good spirits. But in a subsequent Twitter rant, he goes off about everything from demanding that the New York Times and Pitchfork stop reviewing black music, to asking Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to invest a billion dollars in his ideas.

He also goes off repeatedly about his so-called debt, which by all reports (and his own words) is the amount he has invested into fashion over the last 13 years. It’s not exactly debt per say, but rather an investment into his dream. His latest series of tweets are about how he’s banking on fashion groups or even Adidas to bail him out, and about how he hopes that his new album will inspire people to follow their own dreams.

The verdict is still out on how well TLOP will be received amongst all the attention Kanye has brought on himself for other matters, but you can bet he’ll have something to say about it.
