When I think of Kanye West my mind goes to money, rap music and Kim K. I think of the huge mansions, luxurious cars and spending large amounts of money on things he does not need. That all changed on February 14th, 2016 when Kanye released a series of tweets about him having $53 million in debt. Specifically reaching out to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg asking for him to “invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas”.
He continues, tweet after tweet, to basically beg for Zuckerberg and also Larry Page, Co-founder of Google, to give him money so he can “make the world a better place”. While reading through the ongoing tweets that Kanye was sending out to his almost 20 million Twitter followers, I couldn’t help but think about the rest of the world that is not rich and famous.
If Kanye West who has a net worth of $145 million is in that much debt, what is going to happen to everyone else? Our only hope now is if Mark Zuckerberg would invest 1 billion dollars into all of our ideas and then we would be set! If only that could be reality but it is not, so we will all just have to continue on with our lives and hope that Kanye’s debt isn’t the downfall of us all.
