Kanye West Addresses Fake Mandela Quote

Kanye West Addresses Fake Mandela Quotevia Bold and Sugar

Over the weekend, the satire website The Daily Currant used Kanye West's current media tour and the recent passing of political icon Nelson Mandela to fabricate an interview where West declared himself "the next Nelson Mandela." The cornucopia of people Ye has compared himself to—Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, Shakespeare—and the spirited nature with which he's delivered those comparisons made the story all the more easy to believe, even though there was no interview source cited. A quick Google search of The Daily Currant immediately reveals that everything on the site is fake (its tagline is "The Global Satirical Newspaper Of Record") and the "news" was swiftly dispelled. But, as always, Kanye has the last word on the farce. He has taken to Twitter to address the situation. Read below.
