On Sunday night, Ticketmaster told customers that West’s Sunday, November 20, Saint Pablo tour show had been canceled at the Forum in Los Angeles. The announcement came just hours before the show was to get underway at 8 p.m.

The Forum released a subsequent message for ticket holders via Twitter: “Tonight’s show has been cancelled. Refunds at point of purchase.” Adding insult to injury, the show was a makeup night for another show he canceled.

The 39-year-old rapper’s decision to bow out of Sunday night’s performance comes hot on the heels of the heated concert rants he made this week.

As previously reported, West stopped his show after only performing a few songs at the Saturday, November 19, stop on his tour in Sacramento, California. But before he pulled the plug, he lashed out against Jay Z, 46, and Queen Bey, 35.

“Beyoncé, I was hurt,” the notoriously outspoken hip-hop star said, according to videos posted online. “I went down seven years on behalf of you. … I am putting my career, my life, my public standing at risk when I talk to y’all like this. This is a moment in the matrix, bro. … Beyoncé, I was hurt because I hear that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling.’ In my opinion … now don’t go dissing Beyoncé, she’s great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all equal. But sometimes we be playing the politics too much and forget who we are just to win.”

The seven years West mentioned were in reference to the years following his outburst at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, during which he memorably bum-rushed Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech to insist that Beyoncé deserved the award.

The rapper also took aim at Jay Z, whom he previously called out at a concert just weeks after his wife, Kim Kardashian, was robbed at gunpoint in Paris.

“Jay Z — call me, bruh,” he said. “You still ain’t called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers. Please don’t send them at my head.”

West also threw shade at former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

“This Saint Pablo tour is the most relevant [thing] happening. If your old ass keeps following old models, you’ll be Hillary Clinton,” he said. “Radio, f–k you! Oh yeah, I’m on my Trump s–t tonight. Radio — f–k you!”

West then dropped his mic, ending his show after about thirty minutes. Earlier this week, the chart-topper made headlines after telling concertgoers that he would have voted for Trump, 70, if he had decided to cast a ballot at all.

“I told y’all I didn’t vote, right?” he told the crowd in San Jose, California. “What I didn’t tell you … if I were to have voted I would have voted on Trump.”

Earlier on Sunday, West resurfaced on Instagram following a months-long hiatus by posting dozens of weirdly cropped, blurry photos of models.
