Backlash on Kanye

Apparently Kanye is suffering from some serious backlash from saying stupid shit repeatedly about Katrina and Bush. His performance at the NFL kick-off show was greeted by seriously loud booing by New England Patriots fans. 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. Patriots fans, in case you don't know, don't come from Bush-friendly states! His comments may have given him more street cred, but they probably cost him a lot of his white fans.
