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.

I was a big kanye supporter until last night. I was driving and I threw all his CD's out my window. Hes a racist deusch and f-ckin petty. He isn't sorry for what he did. If he was truly sorry he would've done it publically yesterday rather than "him" writing it on his twitter account. I hope his career crashes and burns.

That was not an apology. In it, you can find him grandstanding, again.

Can someone tell Kanye that Taylor Swift won the award because she won the award? It's not an omission of Beyonce's work. That's why she won Video of the Year.

There's a saying that any press is good press. Kanye is finding out that's not true. The real test will be with his next record.

I am sure that what happened was Kanye's assistant wrote that to help and Kanye said F that and told them to take it down. Kanye is the american a-hole!

Seriously, Kanye, what is wrong with you? Something doesn't work normally in your head, how could you think you could do that to a person and not be blasted for it? Or do you live for that? You can truly lose your career over very stupid moves like this! People, your fans are getting pretty sick and tired of this pretty fast. You really need to think before you speak, get a PR person to talk for you, you're just not good at it!

Read it again. It was taken down because he is INSULTING her throughout the whole thing. That is NOT an apology.

Kanye, this nonsense has gone beyond saying what's on your mind, it's gotten where you look unbalanced. You've got to have some family member or someone who cares about you to help keep you sane, help keep you focused, if not, seek someone out...today!
