Kanye West has done a lot of wild things on camera. He crashed Taylor Swift‘s MTV VMAs acceptance moment. He’s told us how much he loves Donald Trump while ranting about something that never actually happened. He’s sold over-priced garbage because you can’t have too much money. It’s well-documented that Kanye West is a mess. Well, we didn’t even know the half of it. Not only is Kanye West a self-aggrandizing, overly-sensitive, money-hongry (the Kardashian Kombo) man of God (AKA himself), but he’s also someone who possibly eats their own earwax. Not that eating someone else’s earwax is any better, but you know.
This is the second-most disgusting thing I’ve seen Kanye West do on camera. Cosmopolitan says that one lucky person got footage of Kanye maybe-eating his own ear shit at some event while with Kim Kardashian.

Now from what I see, Kanye West is picking at the inner lobe of his ear–which I understand, I love to run a Q-tip all up in and around my ear. And then, he puts the whole contents of what he retrieved either in his mouth–or, he then retrieved something else from his mouth, with the wax in-finger. So listen, both are off for me. And usually gross shit is coming out of Kanye’s mouth instead of going in, so this is a change.
People were quick to defend Kanye though:
I think he picked his ear and the pulled something off of his lip tho lol I don’t think he ate the ear wax he didn’t even grab wax he grabbed his ear lobe lol Twitter tryna drag this man through the mud

Someone even claimed the clip, which features audio of people whooping, was doctored:
Video is reversed, shouldnt take everything for face value

Frame job on Kanye’s earwax eating habits? Most people were just grossed out because honestly, the video shows what it shows.
What do you think? Was Kanye just scratching at his ear and then immediately touching his mouth for whatever reason? Or was he just absent-mindedly eating some earwax which is slightly more believable but much more disgusting? I’m gonna assume the second one. Just because knowing how much of an Out Of The Box Genius this man thinks he is, he for sure is the type to eat his own earwax like: “Oh it’s my brain sweat, so it makes my own thoughts stronger and that’s how I create art,” or something.
