The rapper and husband to Kim Kardashian performed at the Wireless Festival, held at Finsbury Park in London, Friday night. Unfortunately, Kanye’s latest set of antics was not well received by the audience.

According to The Daily Mail, the 37-year-old started what became a 20-minute rant about racial discrimination in the fashion industry, calling out Louis Vuitton and Gucci among other high end designers.

“I'm not going to mention any names but ... Nike, Louis Vuitton and Gucci. Don't discriminate against me [because] I'm a black man making music. F**k saving face and what it's supposed to mean, it's about living my dream,” he said.

West also performed in a bejeweled mask that covered his face. According to E! Online, the audience was not willing to stick around and listen to West’s tirade. Hundreds of audience members left the festival early and those that stayed, according to E! Online and The Daily Mail, booed until the conclusion of his speech.

“There was serious booing towards the end of the speech, as people got so fed up and just wanted to hear him perform,” one festival goer told The Daily Mail.
