Abrupt 'Saint Pablo' show cancellation turns into a #KanyeIsOverParty [VIDEO]

Before I introduce this latest Twitter drag session, let's take a look at the back story
Last week, Kanye West went on a political rant during a San Jose show proclaiming his support for president-elect Donald Trump, although admitting he had not voted in the election
Kanyeisms have become increasingly uncomfortable in recent years, therefore his rant on Thursday night was a moderate surprise. These days, you never know what will come out of Yeezy's mouth. All was quiet on Friday, then Saturday arrived with no warning to unsuspecting fans of what was to come at his Sacramento show. Kid Cudi paired with Yeezy on stage, this after a recent rehab visit for depression
The two performed "Waves".

The return of Cudi would be quickly overshadowed. Kanye appeared on the stage well over an hour late, performing only two songs building up to an unexpected tirade including sentiments toward former best pals Beyonce and Jay-Z
"Obama couldn’t make America great because he couldn’t be him to be who he was. Black men have been slaves. Obama wasn’t allowed to do this [screams] and still win," Kanye proclaimed
Then came his hurt feelings over an issue with Bey (which probably isn't an issue to Bey). "Beyoncé, I was hurt because I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over “Hotline Bling.” In my opinion—now, don’t go trying to diss Beyoncé. She is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all equal."
"I’ve been sitting here to give y’all my truth even at the risk of my own life. Even at the risk of my own success, my own career. I’ve been sitting here to give y’all the truth," Yeezy said. "Jay Z, call me, bruh. You still ain’t calling me. Jay Z, call me. Aye, bruh, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man. I’m not trying to be the man. I just am a man, the same as anybody here."
This is the second time this year Kanye used the stage to air out his broken relationship with his former business partner and labelmate. And he continued to pile on for about 15 minutes. “Get ready to have a field day, press, because the show’s over,” Kanye said immediately dropping the mic
After Yeezy stormed off stage, no one really knew what to make of it. Fans departed the venue chanting profanities at the rapper after paying upwards of $250 for the short-lived show
The next night, Kanye's performance at the Los Angeles Forum was canceled a few hours before showtime.

The fate of remaining date in the Saint Pablo tour remains in limbo with reports of the plug being pulled on the upcoming 22 shows concluding at the Barclays Center on New Year's Eve
Here we are and thus the #KanyeisOverParty was born.
Upset fans made opening arguments.
Let's be honest... I really hope Kanye deals with his mental health issues & finds his inner peace! #KanyeIsOverParty— Kodi Gaddis (@KodiGaddis) November 20, 2016
The red carpet was lit, with guests dressed to impressed.
