Kanye Issues Apology, Swiftly Takes It Down

9/14/2009 7:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Last night, Kanye West reportedly posted an apology on his blog to Taylor Swift -- but go to the site now, and it's nowhere to be found.

Kanye West
In the apology -- which MTV.com posted a screen grab of -- West said "I'm in the wrong for going on stage and taking away from her moment ... I will apologize to Taylor 2mrw ... I'm sincerely sorry!!!! Much respect!!!!!"

We're not sure how long the post was up, but it's no longer on the site.

Beyonce, who looked mortified when West rushed the stage to give her props, made good in the show calling Swift back onstage to give her a chance to make a proper acceptance speech.

Kanye is a racist. If the person isn't black, Kanye will attack.

His actions are from another era, long in the past. He wants to keep our country divided along racial lines. MLK is spinning in his grave - some people just don't get it.

Kanye, you are a separatist.

Well, since Kanye "played the Mother card", all I can say is his mother died of EMBARRASSMENT and not medical complications. When is the fool going to get over himself and keep his pie hole shut.

It was not the Kanye West video music awards. Who does he think he is. He is just like Al Sharpton, a media who*e. Will do anything for attention. Really sad.

Kanye, listen up...One outburst, one apology too many!! We are done with you and your spoiled, mama's boy attitude. Who do you think you are? You are not the end all of all opinions. You are not talented as much as you think you are. Watch SNL and watch the true Kayne singing, or lack of talent to do so! You should not be forgiven, you will not be forgiven, too many outbursts, too many apologies, not enough common sense. You can only hear someone apologize for their disgusting behavior so many times until you realise their apologies have as much merit as thier outburst. Not acceptable. MOve on, and move out. WHeny ou hear your name, you hear booing. And now, when we hear your music, you will hear booing. Career over.

I was in complete shock last night over this. What a stupid freak.

To those who say that Beyonce was in on it or whatever, you clearly didn't watch very closely. She was mortified. It's called "nervous laughter" and she wasn't really laughing. You could see in her eyes and on her face that she was thinking the same thing we all were and that is "W.T.F?!" What he did made her look bad too and she knew it.

I thought that it showed mountains of class for her to get up on stage, talk about how she felt when she won HER very first VMA, and then call Taylor back onto the stage to give her acceptance intead of Beyonce doing one herself.
Her being gracious enough to let Taylor have her moment to shine was the one of the best parts of the show.

F*ck Kanye. Why do they even invite him to anything anymore?

Looks like he pulled his site down, it probably crashed after all the comments he was getting. I am sure not positive ones either.

Taking bets on how long it'll be before Koonya West goes the way of Tupac Shackur.
