Kanye Defends Jesus Concert Walk-On

Kanye West

Kanye West shocked fans when he brought out a Jesus look-alike at the opening stop on his Yeezus Tour in Seattle on Saturday. The mock Jesus appeared onstage barefoot wearing a white robe before West performed his hit “Jesus Walks.”

“White Jesus, is that you? Oh, sh*t!” he joked, according to MTV News. West later bowed to the mock Jesus as he stood on a mountaintop. In a recent interview with Bay Area radio station Wild 94.9, he explained why he brings the Son of God onstage.
