Kanye West Explains Why He’s Begging Mark Zuckerberg to Help With $53 Million Debt

There he goes again. Kanye West jumped back on Twitter on Monday, February 15, to explain his rant from late Sunday, when he begged Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg to help bail him out of $53 million in debt.

West first revealed his massive financial woes on Valentine’s Day, February 14, several days after he took the Internet by storm with the joint release of Yeezy Season 3 and his latest studio album, The Life of Pablo. (One of the lyrics from his new song, “Famous,” also attracted some unwarranted attention from Swift’s publicist and her inner circle last Friday, February 12.)

“Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw…” West wrote. “You love hip hop, you love my art… I am your favorite artist but you watch me barely breathe and still play my album in your house… World, please tweet, FaceTime, Facebook, instagram, whatever you gotta do to get Mark to support me…”

His cries for help continued in several follow-up tweets. “Mark, I am publicly asking you for help…one of the coolest things you could ever do is to help me in my time of need,” West added. “I will always respect you for that and the world will love you. I know I can make the world a better place… I have done the impossible… I retook the throne of rap… I beat the fashion game…”

New dad Zuckerberg has yet to respond to West’s pleas for help.
