Kanye West Called “Disrespectful” By Locals For Attempted Projection On The Alamo


Before Memorial Day weekend started, Kanye West promised additional projections of his “New Slaves” single at more cities across the world. One screening set at The Alamo was shut down, as many locals said West was “disrespectful” for his marketing campaign.

Page Six reports a large crowd gathered in front of the historical landmark at around 11:30 p.m. San Antonio officers halted the event because there was no permit issued for the projection.

While some fans had to go home disappointed, other locals were upset over ‘Ye’s innovative debut. Texas National Movement member Angie Alexander says, “It’s very disrespectful to the people who died there.”

The Alamo’s caretaker, Mark Loeffler, added, “It’s sad that people have such little respect for the Alamo.”
