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.

It's a shame that someone with so much talent repeatedly makes such a fool of himself. He needs therapy.

Wow, "are You Kidding" - you just out and out lied in your account of what happened on the school bus in St Clair County. There was no fight that day. A group of black students bullied a white kid on the bus and refused to let him sit down anywhere. When he sat in an empty seat in the back a few of the black students started beating the kit severely including slapping punching and kicking. One guy was even nice enough to hold the poor kid down while his attackers did their work. There were other black students who did not participate in the beating but loudly cheered on the attackers. This went on for a long time before a couple students broke it up. Yes one of them was black - fortunately there was one black kid on the bus who wasn't a militant racist. The entire incident was caught on tape and this victim most certainly did sustain severe injuries as a result of the beating. He was and continues to be bruised from head to toe and he has lacerations on his face. All I can say is if you watched that video tape and can describe what happened as a "fight" then you have a serious problem!!!!! If anyone wants to see what really happened they can watch it on You Tube. In the mean time - quit spreading lies "Are You Kidding".

Sorry, but people forgiving him is the reason this happened. He's just getting worse as his CD sales plummet. He has no business disrespecting a better selling artist, let alone one that can actually sing and play an instrument and compose music.

Money talks and if you aren't the one being hurt, no one cares.

Which is why he will continue to disrespect fellow artists and throw man-trums when he doesn't get his way. Obviously behaving like a ignorant bafoon is the way to keep yourself relevant in Hollyweird. Just as Flava Flav.

I'm a white guy and I feel he's a racist. It's up to me to decide whether or not to forgive him and black people have no business telling me what to think. Right now my answer is "NO" and I never want to see him again. Ever.

I find it funny that there are so many comments saying BLACK people are chearing him on and forgive him for what he did and he is a racist and BLACK people are sticking together. We must not be looking at the same video because from what I can see it's mostly WHITE people chearing him on. Leave race out of it...I'm black and I believe if your wrong you're wrong and what he did was wrong. Just as with anything else...time to move on.

You people are morons. That crowd is about 90% white. So why would a white crowd be celebrating racism against whites? The stupidity exhibited by the trolls in this forum is boundless.

I'd love to see Kanye walk into a country concert & TRY to take the stage, he'd get thrown out on his butt faster than he could sing a note. He's a total loser.
