Attention Yeezy fans: There is now a GoFundMe campaign to help Kanye

Quote
Kanye West baffled the Twittersphere when he claimed Saturday that he was $53 million in personal debt. But, according to TMZ, the $53 million allegedly represents West’s investment in his music and Yeezy Season fashion lines as opposed to actual debt.

Still, one Minneapolis fan decided to make waves anyway, launching a GoFundMe campaign in support of the Life of Pablo artist.

“Kanye West, prolific entertainer/fashion icon/celebrity/member of the Kardashian family needs our help!” Jeremy Piatt declared in the page description.

“Sure he is personally rich and can buy furs and houses for his family, but without our help, the true genius of Kanye West can't be realized,” Piatt added in a callback to Kanye’s recent expository tweets.

He continued: “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!’”

While potential benefactors — such as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg — have yet to publicly respond to West’s calls for backing, 73 humble souls have given to Yeezus as of Wednesday at 10:40 a.m. ET. Their donations have brought the total to a staggering $439, or North West’s play money.

Pizza Hut UK has also seemingly inserted themselves into the debt conversation, trolling Kanye about a part-time job.
