Kanye’s $55 brunch draws Fyre Fest comparisons

Photos of sorry fundraiser brunch plates served to fans who attended Kanye Wests event in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on Friday, have made the social media rounds garnering Fyre Fest comparisons.

West and his choir performed in Baton Rouge Friday night at the annual Brunchella fundraising event at Bethany Church. He drew thousands with his unique Christian-based doctrine centered on praise worship, with songs from his new album,Jesus Is King.Service-goers spent $55 for a Styrofoam plate of toaster pancakes, bacon, grits, and sausage. (The church service was free.)

But several attendees compared to the food to the infamous Fyre Fest meals, the ill-fated 2017 influencer festival that became infamous for its poor planning and viral antics. Further complicating matters was fans frustration over Wests late arrival to an event scheduled for 6pm local time. The service didnt start until well after 8pm.
