Kanye West had his Sunday Service at Coachella yesterday as planned, and as expected he brought out the full range of fuckery. Not only was it a Kanye West concert, so it was guaranteed full of self-indulgent Jesus comparisons (and on Easter Sunday? He has risen and then He left because He heard Kanye West music playing), but it was also mostly streamed through a gloryhole for some reason. Interesting choice.
Another interesting choice was Kanye’s decision to try and rob the people of Coachella blind by charging them crazy prices for his merch. Case in point: $50 Kanye West-brand socks.
The Blast reports that Kanye is really high on that Kardashian #GetMoneyNoMatterTheDignityOrEthicsOfIt tip. The idolatry and greed were on full-display when Kanye performed his Sunday Service. Yes, while singing gospel-inspired renditions of his hits and praising the lord above, Kanye was also charging the upper and upper-middle class people who could afford to attend Coachella insane amounts of money for merch.
In a tent labeled: “Church Clothes”, Kanye West really tried selling the people of Coachella crazy amounts for poorly-constructed basic cotton clothing. Items for sale included: $70 t-shirts, ponchos for $75, $100 to $225 sweaters, sweat pants from $135 to $195 and of course the socks–$50 for two (what a bargain).

Now you too can look like a color-blind member of The Tethered for the low-low price of $70 to $225!
Of course the people of the internet were ready to come hard for this bullshit because only the most greedy, self-important celebrities among us (now all of them) would charge these kinds of prices for trash:
kanye west really out here selling socks for 50 dollars and they don’t even put themselves on ://

Well it looks like you didn’t have to go to the Fyre Festival to get screwed out of your money. You can just go to the California desert and have it taken by super rich people who created some blasphemous socks for you to wear during your idol worship.
And if you want to see a clip of Kanye’s Up With The People cult (more like Upchuck With The People) featuring Chance The Rapper and DMX, here you go:
