Ye Shares Insta Post Amid Accusations of Punching Fan…and It's Weird
Kanye West's Instagram account, quite like the rapper himself, is rather extravagant. As he does not upload posts regularly, every new one usually marks a certain turning point in the musician's life or delivers a message. One can only guess what it is this time.
Following reports that Kanye West, now known as Ye, is under investigation for allegedly punching a fan seeking an autograph, a bizarre post appeared on the rapper's Instagram page.
The new picture shows what appears to be an artistic take on a skinned monkey against a red background.
"MY LIFE WAS NEVER EAZY [sic]", Ye captioned the post, tagging a fellow rapper, The Game, in it.

The Game, in turn, also posted a similar image with the same caption. Neither of the musicians provided any explanation for the possible meaning behind their posts, but some fans have already suggested it could indicate an upcoming collaboration between the two.
Ye's bizarre post also comes after reportedly being accused of punching a fan who asked him for an autograph on Thursday at the Soho Club in Los Angeles. According to reports, the rapper punched the fan twice, in the head and in the neck, and the alleged altercation resulted in the fan striking their head when falling.
Prior to that, Ye reportedly asked the group of fans not to take any pictures, saying they did not understand the difficulties he was facing.
The authorities told The Los Angeles Times that the incident is being treated as an incidence of misdemeanour battery, which has a maximum sentence of six months behind bars.
Over the last couple of years, the extravagant rapper has taken part in the 2020 presidential race (which he notoriously exited after just one bizarre campaign event where he appeared to have a nervous breakdown), released a new album, parted ways with Kim Kardashian, and officially changed his name to Ye. So his life has not been easy, indeed.
