Kanye West Informs Instagram About New McDonald’s Gig!
Kanye West Instagram followers became accustomed to seeing the volatile rapper post frequently on the social media platform. For instance, Kanye used Instagram to attack estranged wife Kim Kardashian for divorcing him. And West even slammed her boyfriend Pete Davidson.
But then Ye suddenly went silent. As a result of that long silence, some fans assumed that a new music release would bring the rapper back. And others theorized that Kim might spark Kanye to renew his attacks by publicizing her romance with Pete even more. But instead, West just surprised everyone by returning to share his (wait for it) gig with fast food giant McDonald’s! Get the details below.
