Sterilize Kanye, Version 2.0

So here's the update on the now infamous comments that Kanye made on a telecast for the Red Cross. He was slated to perform on the Thursday Night NFL Kickoff before the New England Patriots and the Oakland Raiders started off the season. During the entire performance he was booed by the crowds.

"Maroon 5 came off vapidly (doing just one song, ''Harder to Breathe"), while West did one tune, ''Heard 'Em Say." Yet it was disconcerting to hear his name booed loudly by Patriots fans who evidently didn't appreciate his nationally televised comment the other night on a Hurricane Katrina benefit that President Bush ''doesn't care about black people." The boos were thunderous and lasted for much of his number." - Boston Globe

Drudge Report is developing the story.
Gateway Pundit has the story covered, and covered again
Off Wing Opinion goes in depth for the story
"Well, football fans don't care about black people either" - VH1's Best Week Ever

Serves you right, Kanye. I'll go get the scalpel.
