After sorting through his couch cushions for spare change, which is the most relatable thing he’s done in years, Kanye West, who claims he’s $53 million in debt, reached out to Mark Zuckerberg for a small loan. What’s one billion smackers between the CEO of Facebook and Kim Kardashian’s husband?
(2016 is a very weird time to be alive.)
Zuckerberg still hasn’t responded (unlike Pizza Hut, which offered him a job), but the ever-helpful Internet is making sure Kanye can keep his family in furs and houses. A GoFundMe has been started to “Get Kanye Out of Debt.”
As Kanye West has told us time and time again he is the “greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time.” Great artists need to be supported financially to achieve their full potential.
To quote Mr. West, “I am Warhol. I am the number one most impactful artist of our generation. I am Shakespeare in the flesh. Walt Disney. Nike. Google. Now who’s gonna be the Medici family and stand up and let me create more!”

The founder of the campaign, Jeremy Piatt, told Mashable that he’s “trying to help out the greatest living artist of our time while he’s in need… I knew I had to do anything I could to help, because as all my friends would tell you, I’m just a very giving person.” So far, his “friends” have donated $314.
