Kanye West angers concert fans with rant about race and Donald Trump

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Kanye West fans booed, even threw things at the rapper Thursday night at his show at SAP Center in San Jose. It had nothing to do with his music.

Kanye West is a huge star, his fans are loyal. That's why they were willing to spend up to $160 for a ticket to his show here at the sap center. Some just wished he would have talked less.

"Even though he ranted all night it was a good show," said a concertgoer.

"What did you think of the rant?" asked ABC7's Matt Keller.

"I loved it and hated it at the same time," said a concertgoer.

"It was lit. I love Kanye. I love Kanye but he talks a lot. He talks too much. But we all know that. We still love him, though," said a Kanye West fan.

Videos posted on social media shows Kanye did more talking than performing. That frustrated a lot of the audience, some even threw shoes on to the stage.

One of the statements that received the most boos was when Kanye told the crowd he didn't vote, but would have voted for Donald Trump and that he was going to run for president in 2020. Kanye also had this to say about racism in America.

Kanye told the crowd at SAP Center: "specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism. This world is racist ok? Let's stop being distracted to focus on that as much. It is just a expletive fact. We are in a racist country. Period," said Kanye.

One concert goer from Cupertino said he walked out early because Kanye decided to talk his whole concert. He sent a message to TicketMaster asking for a refund. Kanye's Saint Pablo tour will be in Sacramento tomorrow.
