“Following his meeting with President Donald Trump, rapper Kanye West visited an Apple Store in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, where he proceeded to climb atop a display table and deliver a ‘keynote’ to gathered customers,” Mikey Campbell reports for AppleInsider.
“The scene was chronicled by Religion News Service reporter Jack Jenkins, who happened to be at Apple Georgetown when Kanye decided to drop in,” Campbell reports. “Shared on Twitter, Jenkins’ account starts off as a celebrity sighting, but quickly takes a turn for the surreal when West asks to give an impromptu ‘keynote’ to customers in the store.”
“Apple store staff refused to comment on why West was at the location, though photos shared to Twitter suggest he was attending a Genius Bar appointment. Whether employees permitted the rap guru to stand on the store’s tables and address its customers, or if West’s request to do so was mostly rhetorical, is unclear,” Campbell reports. “West exited the premises in as dramatic a fashion as he entered, announcing he is ‘going to Africa.'”
