Kanye West brought up the Barneys racism mess during a concert Friday in Las Vegas.

Two African Americans have accused the store of racial profiling after they were detained by cops after making expensive purchases at their New York City store.

The scandal has put pressure on rapper Jay-Z to pull his curated fashion line from the store ahead of its release next month, and his friend West shared his opinion during his Yeezus tour stop in Sin City.

“That’s that broke n**ga racism,” he told the crowd. “Don’t touch anything in the store. Excuse me that’s that, ‘can I help you sir?’ That’s that racial profiling out in front of Barneys and s**t. Talking about, ‘Did you steal that?’ And it’s that rich n**ga racism, that’s come in… come in please buy more, please buy more… I know you just got some money and can’t wait to spend it n**ga.”

Jay Z has released a statement revealing he is waiting for the full facts on the incident before making a decision regarding the future of his Barneys collection.

5 thoughts on “Kanye West Rants About Barneys Racism on Stage (Watch)

  1. Kanye doesn’t like black people being mistreated at stores such as Barney’s. However, he fails to address how he is harming the black community by constantly using the n word. I wish he, Jay-Z, and so many other entertainers would just stop it! Oh and might I add, they are using the n word and getting paid for it too, by both white and black consumers. SAD!!!! Our ancestors are in heaven shaking their heads in shame and disgust.

  2. This shows us the difference between Kanye & Jay Z. Jay Z is more level headed and doesn’t get emotional. Kanye is a hot head who will fly off the handle in a second. He is emotional. He is a genuis with music, but as a person (his personality), he has some issues AS WE ALL KNOW!! But hey, we all have some issues I guess. Jay Z has his also. I just wish we as a people would learn to not act in emotion so much.

  3. Enough on said:

    Then he goes on to sell Confederate Flags at his concerts. He is such a sham and this and his dissing of Black women makes him someone whose rants I would not give the time of day. He is all hot air with no substance.

  4. I wish Kanye has done like Jay Z. Just kept his mouth shut if the only thing he could do was give an offensive rant. The N word is NEVER acceptable in any form or from ANYBODY.
