App Companies (and Kim Kardashian) Should Beware of Kanye West Twitter Rants

Now I ain't sayin' she a gold digger, but she ain't messin' with no broke ...

When you’re a Kardashian, you become so incredibly self-absorbed, you’re constantly under the impression that everyone cares about your feelings on the most insignificant things, such as naming your child after a navigational direction, the benefits of “blood facials,” or X-ray images of your butt.

And then there are the antics of Kanye West who takes vainglorious to a whole new level.

Thanks to dolts who fave and share every word he says, the world discovers Yeezus’ disdain for the dreaded app developers who have the uncanny nerve to place in-game purchases in their products. Before the rich irony of his visceral rant, let’s behold the intelligent (and NSFW) discussion of Mr. West.

Most of us “regular” parents can understand the angst of in-app purchases, namely when the child knows how to buy stuff without asking first. However, Kanye is married to one of the biggest causes for parental strife, thanks to her ridiculous app and website.

According to Time, Ayelet Waldman, the bestselling author of Bad Mother and wife of novelist Michael Chabon, complained on Twitter that Kardashian’s app “tricked” her 11-year-old son into spending $120 on Kardashian’s in-app store.

That’s purchasing from $3.99 to $39.99 for scoring at home. Wonder if Kim knows her doltish hubby hates her guts?

We feel you, Ayelet. We feel you. Apparently, so does Kanye.
