Kanye West has been on the receiving end of criticism ever since he released his famous video which stars him, his wife Kim Kardashian and a bunch look-alikes portraying Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Ray J, Chris Brown, Donald Trump, Caitlyn Jenner and Amber Rose among others.
Girls creator, Lena Dunham called the video sickening and one of the more disturbing artistic efforts in recent memory.
“Now I have to see the prone, unconscious, waxy bodies of famous women, twisted like they’ve been drugged and chucked aside at a rager? It gives me such a sickening sense of dis-ease,” she said.
Lena whose parents are both artists further adds, “I know that art’s job is to make us think in ways that aren’t always tidy or comfortable. But this feels different.”
It may be art to him but why did he have to drag other celebrities into it, several people have pondered.
“It makes me feel sad and unsafe and worried for the teenage girls who watch this and may not understand that grainy roving camera as the stuff of snuff films,” Lena Dunham said.
According to CNN, some people like artist Vincent Desiderio are praising the video calling it ‘a feat of magic.’ While Kanye West defended his video saying “It’s not in support or anti any of [the people in the video].”
