Comedian Crashes Kanye West’s Glastonbury Performance
'Ye had to restart "Black Skinhead" after security removed the intruder
Update: The crasher was comedian Lee Nelson, who maybe wasn’t so much of a fan.
Some people were saying Kanye shouldn’t headline Glastonbury so I thought I’d give him a hand. pic.twitter.com/7KFk2kgjsM

Despite a petition urging the Glastonbury Festival organizers to cancel Kanye West’s Saturday night headline performance that garnered almost 135,000 signers, the problem with ‘Ye’s set might be that fans are too into it. While performing the Yeezus cut “Black Skinhead” in front of what is by all accounts a packed crowd, a fan somehow made it onto the stage and interrupted the song, pretending to rap along with West. Security quickly took care of the interloper, and West had to start the track over. Watch a Vine of the crasher’s rise and fall.
