Week 10: November 21, 2016

Kanye West has certainly made a spectacle of himself (well, more than usual). He left his latest Saint Pablo Tour show after fifteen minutes of ranting. He said that he would’ve voted for Donald Trump. Surprisingly, our grievance is not with his political views, but with his need to share them without having exercised his democratic right to vote. However, in a surprising twist of events, West was hospitalized in Los Angeles after cancelling the remaining dates of his tour, and is being held for observation.

The Dakota Access Pipeline has been a pressing issue, and escalated way out of control last night. One lone civilian named Kevin Gilbertt shared a live feed on Facebook of the events unfolding before his eyes. He received instantaneous attention, and his feed was disrupted as backlash. Former U.S. Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders shared the feed, and appealed to President Barack Obama to help. The authorities doused unarmed protestors with tear gas, some so violently that they lost control of their bodily functions. If you are interested in viewing some of Kevin’s feed, click here.
