Kanye West Fans Are Upset After Paying $55 For Food At His Sunday Service Concert Only To Get Bad Food

We’re in the final weeks of 2019, the decade is coming to an end and many things that used to, don’t make sense anymore. Like Kanye West’s concert being covered from start to finish by the Christian Broadcasting Network —of all networks. If someone had told us at the beginning of the decade that this would be happening, we’d definitely brushed it off. Not only is wildly talented musician’s Christian conversion a surprise, for a lot of attendees to his Sunday Service concert in Baton Rouge last week the food served was more than a disappointing surprise.

Each of Kanye’s albums has a distinct personality —a mirror pointed toward all the rumors and tabloids and scrutiny. Everything he does is an event; no other artist uses their platform more effectively. From his early days of throwing out confrontational vibes on “Late Registration,” to that incident at the VMAs with Taylor Swift, to disappearing into Hawaii and returning with “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy,” to the guerilla marketing of “Yeezus” and Paul McCartney collaborations and the sloppy but one-of-a-kind release of “The Life of Pablo,” he’s maintained an awesome cult of personality throughout his career.

Now thousands of die-hard fans are choosing to follow Jesus Christ as a result of Kanye West’s new outreach concerts called “Sunday Service.”

Kanye stunned the world with his new album called “Jesus is King,” saying his life is now devoted to sharing the message of God’s love and salvation. The hip-hop icon took his ‘Sunday Service’ on the road, making an appearance at the Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to perform songs from his latest release, Jesus is King.

According to The Blast, West wasn’t paid for the concert and he had nothing to do with the food. However, the catering provided to attendees for $55 riled up a few attendees and sparked outrage and hilarious reactions on the internet.

Like it happens in all of Kanye’s recent Sunday gatherings, fans attend to praise the born-again rapper and the performances of both himself and his accompanying gospel choir. Many guests are not happy with the price of attending and food provided at the event held at Baton Rouge.

One attendee’s post about the questionable, Fyre Fest-esque food went viral.

One attendee posted a picture of what she’d been served—a pair of pancakes, two sad strips of bacon, and a sausage patty on a styrofoam plate—and said she wanted a refund. “Can y’all cover a story on this because I want my coins back,” concert attendee Kimberly Kinchen asked, tagging a local news station. “This is the wonderful & COLD brunch BUFFET we are being served.”

The shade over the “food” kept rolling in as more and more people learned about it.

Louisiana is one of the most wonderful states in the U.S. for food. The Cajun food culture in the southern state is one of the most celebrated and loved food in the country. How did they not plan better food for the event?

Some social media users called out the attendees for falling for the scam.

Not saying the attendees are to blame, but it is almost like no one learned from the Fure Fest fiasco.

The church allegedly holds a yearly ‘Brunchella’ to raise funds, but they denied the claim.

A source close to the situation reported to The Blast, that Bethany Church in Baton Rouge holds an annual event called “Brunchella” each year to raise money. Kanye and his Sunday Service did perform at the event at 8 p.m. that night. The church, however, denies it is an annual event and claims the church was simply used as venue for the event. The food was provided by a promoter for ‘Brunchella.’

Once a Twitter post showing the measly breakfast hit social media, it gained viral status real quick.

The internet was quick to make connections to the infamous Fyre Festival and its famous promise of “gourmet celebrity chef meals” that turned out to be the viral and awful-looking cheese sandwiches. “What’s going on at Fyre Fest South aka #Brunchella?” one fan wrote.

In a press release, the event coordinator clarified that the brunch was provided for ticket holders before Kanye’s performance.

“On Friday, November 1, Lauryn’s Fine Catering provided brunch to Baton Rouge Sunday Service to attendees. Sunday service has no affiliation with the ‘Brunchella’ catering service. Attendees were to be provided with a hot brunch while waiting on Kanye West to perform. The catering company did not provide adequate food for ONE attendee and a social media post went viral,” they said. The press release continued, “Kanye West and the Sunday Service collective has no responsibility for any food complaints reported and should be disassociated with such claims.” As one person pointed out on Twitter, “Kayne not responsible for this.. The promoter is who put the brunch together..”

The catering service addressed the controversy on Facebook.

In a Facebook post, Lauryn’s Fine Catering addressed the controversy, saying that the event’s organizers were the ones who set that $55 brunch price and that they weren’t even asked to participate in the 2,000-person VIP event until “28 hours” before it took place. “While we typically do not fulfill large, full-service orders with less than a month’s notice, we chose to assist the organizers whom we believed to be affiliated with Kanye’s team at an incredibly reduced rate,” the caterer wrote. “Our company additionally provided staffing, tables, and linens at little or no cost.”

For what it’s worth, that “Duck Dynasty” chick had a great time.

“Straight up night of praise and worship with joy, humility, thankfulness, bold faith and power,” wrote Korie Robertson, the wife of Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty, on Instagram. “His name was lifted high in this place. Yes, God, more of this.” Nothing makes sense this year, we tell you, but next time, maybe better breakfast, God?

A Mexican Artist Is Making Pancake Art That’s Too Beautiful To Eat

Social media is where people can show off just about anything they create. This includes art in any and all media, like pancake art. Claudia, the creator behind Nappan Pancake art, is the latest artist watching their art reach the masses.

Claudia, the artist behind Nappan Pancake art, got her start because of the pandemic.

The artist first started to play around with pancake art last spring break when the pandemic forced businesses and schools to close. Claudia wanted to get more creative with her kids’ breakfasts since they were now always at home.

“I started experimenting with making Pancake art,” Claudia recalls to mitú. “At first I only used the color of the natural dough and a little cocoa. At first, I just used the ketchup dispensers and little by little I learned.”

Claudia uses her pancake art to honor some truly iconic people.

Cepillín recently died and the loss was felt throughout the community. He made our lives joyous and fun with his music, especially his birthday song. Some of the creations are done for fans who request to see their faves turned into delicious pancake art.

The artist loves creating the edible works of art.

The journey of becoming a pancake artist has been a fun adventure for Claudia and her children. The more she has practiced, the more she has been able to do.

“Sometimes I scream with excitement and I go to all the members of my house to see it,” Claudia says about her successes. “Other times it’s just a feeling like “disappointment could be better” other times it just breaks or burns and then I just cry but it usually feels very satisfying.”

You can check out all of her creations on TikTok.

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Viral Video Of Overworked Texas Dominos Workers Burdened By Snow Storm Goes Viral

Texas’s current power crisis from a devastating storm has disrupted power generation and frozen natural gas pipelines. The is historic storm has driven electric demand higher than the state has ever seen, but it’s not just electric energy being overextended as a result. It’s physical and mental human energy as well.

Recently, an image of two exhausted Domino’s Pizza workers went viral for showing the extreme exhaustion workers are experiencing.

In a post shared to News4sanantonio.com’s Chime In page a user by the name of July DeLuna explained “This Dominos in San Antonio. Working during this crisis. They had a weekend worth of food and it was gone within 4 hours. This team helped those that needed help. These are the essential workers that need recognition. They were the only pizza place open. Every pizza place was closed but dominos stayed open to help those in need.”

Little else is known about the exhausted workers in the viral image but it did rack up over 8K comments within hours of being posted.

“Dominoes better pay them for the shifts they’ll miss while they don’t have any ingredients. With this practical free advertising it’s the least they could do. Otherwise these kind people worked themselves out of already bad hourly pay,” one user commented.

“,As someone who works in the food service industry, the thought of selling out of all product in only four hours and how much work goes in to preparing that much food is unfathomable levels of nightmare fuel,” another noted.

In another response to the image, a Reddit user wrote “I cannot express to you how upsetting it is to be the only food source open during hard times, to still be open and show up to do your job with higher than normal levels of orders, and still get yelled at by management for not having orders out within a window of time.”

Images of overworked and stressed is nothing new of course.

Fast-food workers are often burdened by their field’s daily challenges. In 2020, food industry workers are being forced to endure customer abuse at even higher rates. Last year a TikTok video of a Subway restaurant falling asleep while in the middle of making a sandwich went viral.

“This is actually really sad. I can’t imagine how underslept she is. Not to mention the wage people get paid at Subway… She deserves better,” one TikTok user by the name of Monique Emilia commented at the time. The skincare influencer Hyram also commented writing “Poor thing… Can’t imagine how underslept she is, we’re too hard on service workers.”
