L.A. to Kanye

We Forgive You!!!

9/27/2009 11:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

He may be a social pariah everywhere else -- but when Kanye West made a surprise appearance at Common's benefit concert last night in Hollywood, he got a hero's welcome.



The crowd at the show -- which featured Common, Nas, Ludacris, De La Soul, The Roots, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and more -- just exploded when Kanye rushed out on stage. He stayed for a few songs -- including "Good Life" and "Run This Town" -- and had the crowd going nuts the whole time.

Kanye was able to perform without interruption.

Hey L.A. Specifically Hollywood.. lives in a bubble.. look they forgave Woody Allen for being a pedophile (remember he shacked up with his ADOPTIVE daughter) blood or not, that is INCEST.. they forgave so many other freaks out there because in their world, rules don't apply..They barely gave coverage to Jamie Fox going off on Miley Cyrus (remember another minor) he went on her, talked so much crap about her, mind you this girl is a kid... PUHLEEZE, it doesn't surprise me that they forgave this freak... and hey Kayne..you hate white people so much, isn't your girl, Amber part white?? you're so phoney.

This is getting UNREAL! To the Truth, SP, This Doctor and the MANY others...what is WRONG with you people??? A man hopped onstage, grabbed the mic from another person and was extremely rude. Talk about the act. The act was a despicable. I'm black and I have no idea how his actions reflect on who I am. But you guys are turning this into some sort of black issue, like it proves some kind of point about blacks. This is so crazy!! If he was a white guy, no one would be focusing on race at all. What the hell kind of world do we live in? What makes people think this way?!

Ahhhhh!! The ones cheering him on do so because being a bad boy to them is hip. They probably wouldn't even have cheered all that much before the whole Taylor Swift episode. Times they are a changing, but not for the better as to who to respect in society, unfortunately.

He is an angry, racist, self abosorbed idiot. He did his ridiculous
rants prior to the death of his mother so I don't buy that as
justification. JERK!

56. Good for Kanye! I'm also happy for ther people that got a chance to enjoy his talent. White people trip me out. YOU praise IMUS, RUSH LIMBAUGH, HEAVY METAL (which advocates nothing but debauchery, murder and misery, AND want to bury the legacy of slavery in America (lynchings, owning people like property) but want BLACKS to crucify Kanye for taking a microphone from a rich, pampered white PERFORMER at an awards show.

GTFOH with that and kiss our collective black asses

I See White people in the crowd and the people recording the video don't look black to me. I think you people are def, dumb, blind, or all the above. Most people know that babies (white babies) on youtube where dancing to Beyonce"s song (Single Ladies) and that what kanye did was wrong but but not false but I think that is what hurt the most. SHE KNEW SHE DIDN'T DESERVE THE AWARD AND KANYE BUSTED HER OUT ON IT ON NATIONAL TV AND SHE FROZE UP.
