When a celebrity is blackballed in the entertainment industry, this is how it begins.
Reportedly, troubled singer/producer Kanye West has been banned from the star-studded Haiti Telethon that airs on several networks tomorrow night.
The telethon to raise money for Haiti relief efforts is co-hosted by George Clooney in Hollywood and Wyclef Jean in New York. Many celebrities are expected to attend and show their support for Haiti during the two-hour telecast. But Kanye won't be among them.
Kanye West is among the only top stars not invited to appear on tomorrow's George Clooney–organized telethon for Haiti. "After what he said on the Katrina telethon and the way he behaved at the MTV Video Music Awards, everyone agrees it's just best that he does not participate," says a producer. "Kanye has to make everything about himself. He will do anything to steal the spotlight and, well, this night it's just not about him."
Kanye is considered a social outcast in Hollywood since selfishly storming the stage and snatching the mic out of country singer Taylor Swift's hand during the American Music Music Awards last year. Kanye is learning the hard way that being an out-of-control narcissist is not very good for one's career.
