Kanye West is continuing to ruffle feathers amid backlash over voicing support for President-elect Donald Trump.

This weekend, the 39-year-old rapper performed in Sacramento, California, where he once again dipped out of a show early, fans say. According to a slew of complaints from Twitter users, the “Fade” rapper arrived late to a scheduled gig, performed only a handful of songs and launched another ridiculous rant before exiting the stage as the audience booed.

While things started on a positive note, as West brought out rapper Kid Cudi, where the duo squashed their ongoing beef with a hug, the energy quickly shifted when West began to take aim at fellow artists Jay Z and Beyoncé.

“Beyoncé, I was hurt ‘ause I heard that you said you wouldn’t perform unless you won Video of the Year over me and over ‘Hotline Bling,’ ” West said, referencing this year’s MTV VMAs. “Now don’t go trying to diss Beyonce. She is great. Taylor Swift is great. We are all great people. We are all people. But sometimes we be [sic] playing the politics too much and forgetting who we are just to win. F— winning. F— looking cool. F— being cool.”

West went on to take a jab at his longtime pal, Jay Z, saying, “Jay Z, call me bruh. You still ain’t called me. Jay Z, I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head. Just call me. Talk to me like a man.”

Finally, Kim Kardashian’s husband concluded his rant by yelling, “Right now, press, get ready to write your passive aggressive, LeBron James racist comments, season four racist comments. Get ready to have a field day, press, get ready, get ready, because the show’s over.”

In true West style, he dropped the mic and fled the stage as the crowd loudly booed. “I stuck with you when you lost your s— on Taylor and everyone hated you. And this is what we get in return. @kanyewest,” wrote one user.

“Really @kanyewest how are you gonna disrespect your fans who spent there [sic] hard earned money to see you by coming late, rant & perform 2 songs,” penned another angered fan.

Meanwhile, neither West nor the Golden 1 Center venue has commented as to whether fans can expect a refund for the show.
