Kanye music is deemed too hot to touch these days.
Fox Sports’ music director apparently didn’t get the memo that Kanye West is not very popular at the moment. For the past few weeks, most of corporate America have been distancing themselves from Kanye West over his antisemitic remarks went viral. It’s been hard to avoid all the Kanye coverage.
If you’re a fan of social media, you can’t go a few seconds without seeing another story about the controversial rapper.
Now we have some more people up in arms over Kanye.

This might be too much hate, I mean it probably wasn’t intentional, and if you can separate his music from his personal beliefs it would be a lot easier just in case this happens again. Say what you will about Kanye, but his music is so part of this culture, it’s going to be near next to impossible to eradicate it.
Luckily there are plenty of songs to use next time.
