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.

Don't invoke the name of Obama here, or, like the health organization Humana, who tried to let Senior Citizens know their Medicare benefits will be substantially cut under the proposed health plan, you'll get slapped with a gag order!
Kanye's behavior is the LEAST of this country's worries! Soon NO ONE will have a voice!

What a surprise, blacks who hate whites celeberate a black thug for racist behavior. If Kanye had raped Taylor Swift, he'd be a God for this bunch of dumb animals. LA sucks.

He lost me when he disrespected the young girl. I don't care what color he is.

It's because the "majority" of hip hop glorifies, promotes fuels ignorance, disrespect and misogyny on all levels.

@Heather, they are not making porodys of Taylors video are they? Go ahead admit that Beyonce's video is and was better. Color has nothing to do with this does it?

Kanye and other artists in his "genre" have found a great recipe for success. Slow down music made by actual artists so that the lowest common-denominator of people can appreciate it. Dumb it down for the idiots.

Sure they forgive him...they're a bunch of black thugs just like him. They probably pick on little white girls all the time too.

Why is everybody calling Kanye West a racist??? Yes, Beyonce is black and Taylor is white, but so what?!!! Just b/c he was saying a black person shoulda won, it does not make him racist. How many of you who are spewing out that word toward a black man are as quick to recognize it in one of your own? Half of you roll your eyes and shake your head anytime you hear a black person scream racism no matter what the situation.

I'm glad Kanye is being forgiven. He was a complete moron for doing what he did, and I was glad his ass got booed. He deserved it. But he apologized, Taylor forgave him, and now we need to MOVE ON. This is NOT as serious as people are making it out to be. Stop headlining everything that a black man does! It was an awards show for crying out loud!! All he did was be RUDE. It's not like he rolled the girl down the damn stairs!! Are you guys saying that his career should be over because of this??!!! I'll give you Michael Vick. I'll even give you Chris Beat-her-down Brown, but come ON with the Kanye West s#it!!! Get over it already!!!!!!
