WATCH: Kanye West’s 46th birthday
Kanye West’s 46th birthday party sparked controversy due to the inclusion of the Japanese practice nyotaimori, where sushi is eaten off naked women. Critics argued that it perpetuates objectification and cultural appropriation.
Additionally, the presence of Kanye’s daughter, North West, at the event raised concerns about appropriateness for a young child. Photos and discussions on platforms like Reddit led to public scrutiny and disapproval.
The controversy highlights the challenges of being a public figure and ignited broader discussions on cultural sensitivity, parenting choices, and boundaries in the entertainment industry. The response from Kanye and others involved remains to be seen.
