In the 7+ minute video, a mysterious man claiming to be from Anonymous & wearing a Guy Fawkes mask (the symbol of the group) attacks West for his lack of humility and also addresses how his fame and notoriety has been under utilized.
The mystery man notes that Kanye focuses on fashion while there or other more pressing issues in the world and that he has never used his influence or platform to better humanity. They also go in on West’s wife, Kim Kardashian‘s over use of sexuality and bashes the couple for forcing fans to focus on sex and material growth instead of using their influence to change the world.

Anonymous posted the following message along with the video:
A direct message to our brother, Mr. West, to teach him a lesson on humility, and responsibility, over his out of control, hypocritical, and impulsive actions. Anonymous is sounding off the new Renaissance era this year for humanity, and “we aint finna play with them nooooo more! Because at this point, we’re tired of it!”
And you need to respect real artistry and allow other artists other than Beyonce to be celebrated for their achievements. “Because, what happens is, when you keep diminishing art, and not respecting the craft, and smacking other artists in the face, you’re disrespectful to inspiration.” You owe Beck, Taylor Swift, your fans, and the many people you’ve hurt and disappointed over the years an apology, Mr. West. Our tolerance with your arrogant and distasteful behavior to gain attention online has reached its end. We will be watching you.

Honestly, everything in their message to Kanye is worth thinking about. Hell… it’s even got me questioning my own life and ‘material’ obsessions!
Watching the video also made me think of how many ‘celebs’ give back and are often engaged in politics and social causes… but I can’t think of one time that Kanye (a very VOCAL Black man) has spoken up about Ferguson, Trayvon Martin or any issues of social injustice… ever. But let someone diss Beyonce… it’s on! What is that about?
