Kanye West Gets Booed At Dodger Stadium
Kanye West isn't always everybody's favorite person. I'ma let you finish, but sometimes he just acts a little self-involved.
That doesn't necessarily mean he should be publicly shamed, though. But Dodgers fans love a public shaming, so when the rapper appeared on the Jumbotron at last night's game, he got booed.
ESPN writer Arash Markazi tweeted the incident:

Markazi then noted that West got moved to bigger and better seats:

West was there with Rob Kardashian and a group of other friends. Kardashian Instagrammed a photo of himself wearing a jersey with the name "West" emblazoned across the back.
Other tweeps documented the incident, with some saying that West was a dangerous omen:
