Nearly a year ago, Kanye West premiered the music video to "All of the Lights." In its first run, the video failed to warn viewers of its possible seizure-inducing edits. 'Ye and his team quickly distributed another edit of the video that contained a "WARNING" message at the beginning when doctors at Cambridge Research Facilities claimed the video had the potential to cause epileptic seizures.
On Thursday, Kanye and Jay-Z released the video to "Ni**as in Paris," the best song of 2011, and before the light-show began, the Throne issued a "WARNING" message that read, "This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised."
Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy, or CURE, spoke to TMZ about the sensitivity 'Ye and Jay' showed toward their viewers with photosensitive epilepsy. Here is what the organization had to say:
"50,000 individuals lose their lives each year due to seizures and related causes. We applaud artists like Kanye West and Jay Z who recognize the potential dangers in their videos, movies and performances and are conscientious enough to warn patients and their families about the risks."
TMZ also reached out to a representative of Epilepsy Therapy Project:
"Given the 4 million people who suffer from epilepsy in the US alone, we need to work together with the music industry on how best to destigmatize the condition and stop seizures and epilepsy once and for all so everyone can enjoy the music."
'Ye and Jay save the day!
