Moments before he took the "Saturday Night Live" stage to give a musical performance, Kanye West went on a(nother) epic Twitter rant. The subject matter sprawled all over the place, but one particular tweet is still sending ripples throughout the social media universe:
I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt… Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…
Can this be true? Of course it’s true because Kanye’s tweets = facts — except all the incredibly offensive, manic, ego-driven ones that more closely resemble burning trash than useful information.
But even most of those are good for a laugh or two. Former Golden State Warriors center Adonal Foyle wasted no time pouncing on Kanye’s semi-plausible financial trouble by firing off a legendary tweet of his own:
Selected by Golden State with the eighth overall pick in the 1997 NBA Draft, Foyle retired from the NBA in 2009. Since, he’s been nothing short of a model citizen. In 2009, the now 40-year-old was inducted into the World Sports Humanitarian Hall of Fame. Eight years earlier, he founded "Democracy Matters," a student organization that targets campaign finance reform.
The man knows money; maybe Kanye should take him up on his offer.
