Kanye West is under fire for a recent live appearance, which was marred by poor organisation and delays, with some fans slamming a paltry $55 brunch that was on offer.

Just last week, Kanye West shocked the music world by not only revealing that he managed to receive a $68 million tax refund, but that he chalked it up to being a gift from God following his recent religious conversion.

With this in mind, some fans were undoubtedly thinking that Kanye might have taken some charitable lessons from Jesus himself, perhaps – at the very least – discounting some of the merch he offers at his concerts?

While it sounds like that won’t be happening any time soon, Kanye has now found himself in the sights of jaded fans who have hit back at the hip-hop star for the paltry brunch offered at his recent Sunday Service event.


As The Daily Mail reports, Kanye made an appearance at a Louisiana church on Friday night, attracting thousands as he joined for the service and performed songs from his chart-topping (yet divisive) Jesus is King record.

Despite the service being free, organisers of the event offered up a $55 ‘Brunchella’ breakfast plate as a means of raising money for the church, which has since drawn comparisons to the food offered up at the ill-fated Fyre Festival.

In addition to kicking off two hours after the advertised 6pm start time, $55 brought attendees little more than a Styrofoam plate half-filled with cold bacon, sausage, grits, and pancakes.

In a statement that was offered up The Daily Mail, caterers defended their services, claiming the photo of the brunch that went viral was in fact an isolated incident.

“Lauryn’s Fine Catering has been contacted about the poor service and quality of food provided during the event as a paid vendor,” the statement began. “The catering company acknowledges it did not provide adequate food for ONE attendee and a social media post went viral.”

Despite the event being free to attend with Kanye reportedly appearing for no fee, some in attendance demanded their money back for the poor catering, before derision was also directed at the VIP area which seemingly consisted of little more than a grassy knoll.

Although Kanye is yet to respond to the incident, users on Twitter have been increasingly vocal about the delays, poor organisation, and status of the food, leading to at least one hashtag of #YeezyFyreFest trending on Twitter.
