Kanye West was booed by U.K. fans Sunday at the Wireless Festival.

That's not fair. I mean, who can't appreciate spending a lot of money to go see a music festival at which the headliner, instead of playing music, complains about fashion designers?

The Daily Mail reports West went on a 20-minute rant in the middle of his set.

"'I'm not going to mention any names but... Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don't discriminate against me 'cos I'm a black man making music," he reportedly told the crowd.

"(Expletive) face and what it's supposed to mean, it's about living my dream."

It sure is. Everyone's life is about Kanye West living his dream.

The crowd started booing as the rant went on. Then people got on social media and complained as West kept yapping instead of performing.

They obviously don't understand genius.

West has a history of this sort of thing, but being it was at a big festival, he had a limited time on stage, which no doubt helped convince the fans to let him know how they felt.
