Last week, Kanye West came out on Twitter to declare a debt of $53 million, and called on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to help him out and invest in his ideas.
In a series of tweets, Kanye had asked Zuckerberg for a billion dollars, telling him to call him and invest in Kanye West ideas.
“Mark Zuckerberg invest 1 billion dollars into Kanye West ideas …after realizing he is the greatest living artist and greatest artist of all time,” the iconic rapper wrote on his Twitter.
“Mark Zuckerberg I know it’s your bday but can you please call me by 2mrw… You love hip hop, you love my art… I am your favorite artist but you watch me barely breathe and still play my album in your house … World, please tweet, FaceTime, Facebook, instagram, whatever you gotta do to get Mark to support me…(sic)”
Many people had wondered why Kanye didn’t make his plea on Facebook, and a post by a former Facebook software engineer, Steven Grim read: “Dear Kanye West: If you’re going to ask the CEO of Facebook for a billion dollars, maybe don’t do it on Twitter.”
Zuckerberg didn’t respond with a statement, but he did appear to like the user’s status about Kanye’s ambitious bid. (See screenshot above) So we can say he also wasn’t too impressed with Kanye going through Twitter.
