Kanye West Gets Served Fish Sticks in Response to South Park Parody [videos]
The Kanye West / fish stick saga is starting to reach truly epic proportions: Kanye West was served fish sticks the other day while dining at the Cheesecake Factory.
A little backstory: last week's South Park had this whole storyline about a joke that united the nation: "Do you like fish sticks? Do you like putting fish sticks in your mouth? What are you, a gay fish?" Taking the gag further, they parodied Kanye West as the self-professed "most talented musician in the world," who doesn't get the joke.
Fake Kanye tries desperately to figure it out, while denying claims via press conference that he is in fact, neither gay nor a fish: "Because I am a genius I have ascertained that fish have gills." Fake-West becomes some sort of a rallying point for gays, with fans even showing up to his concerts dressed in gay fish costumes. The episode ends with a brilliant autotune music video as a celebration of his true gay fish nature. See videos after the jump.
The real-life Kanye West first responded on his blog last week, all in caps:
SOUTH PARK MURDERED ME LAST NIGHT AND IT’S PRETTY FUNNY. IT HURTS MY FEELINGS BUT WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM SOUTH PARK! I ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY EGO THOUGH. HAVING THE CRAZY EGO IS PLAYED OUT AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE AND CAREER. I USE TO USE IT TO BUILD UP MY ESTEEM WHEN NOBODY BELIEVED IN ME. NOW THAT PEOPLE DO BELIEVE AND SUPPORT MY MUSIC AND PRODUCTS THE BEST RESPONSE IS THANK YOU INSTEAD OF “I TOLD YOU SO!!!” IT’S COOL TO TALK SHIT WHEN YOU’RE RAPPING BUT NOT IN REAL LIFE.
On Saturday he wrote on his blog (emoticon emphasis his):
SOUTH PARK pt. 3 I WAS AT CHEESECAKE FACTORY YESTERDAY AND THE MANAGER BROUGHT ME A PLATE OF FISH STICKS... (in a sarcastic tone) uuuuuuum, GREAT! : /
It's very possible Kanye West won't be able to live this one down.
Also, Cheesecake Factory? For real?
