Witches' Brew: Ooooh, You Got Kanyed, Son!

Ooooh, You Got Kanyed, Son!

Kanyed: To totally interrupt someone in the middle of them talking about something important


Did ya’ll catch that Kanye moment at last night’s Oscars? Here’s what went down. Short documentary winner Roger Ross Williams was accepting his award for directing “Music by Prudence,” when all of a sudden, he got Kanyed by Elinor Burkett. Burkett was a producer of the film, until she left the project over some “creative differences.”

Williams and Burkett have been battling over the film’s creative control for about a year. She says she gave him the idea for the project, since she actually lives in Zimbabwe. When you win an Oscar, one person has to deemed as the person who will accept the award, so that’s what Williams was doing when this happened.

It turns out Williams’ mother (who was his Oscar “date”) used her cane to try to block Burkett from running up on stage. That block was a fail and Burkett went on to straight Kanye that moment. #kanyeshrug

Strange, yet Kanye West was the first thing that I thought about too when I first saw this.
