Mark Zuckerberg Sort of Responds To Kanye West's Request for Money

'Ye may want to resubmit his request through another medium.

Published February 18, 2016

Kanye West recently made the shocking admission that he was $53 million in debt. Perhaps even more surprising is how he wanted to pull himself out of it.

The rapper/producer recently reached out to Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg, but he did it on Twitter, which most off the bat felt inappropriate. Well, it was that element that the billionaire found strange too.

Steven Grimm, a former colleague of Zuckerberg at Facebook and friend on the social media network posted a status to Facebook reading, “Dear Kanye West: If you’re going to ask the CEO of Facebook for a billion dollars, maybe don’t do it on Twitter.”

Zuckerberg didn’t comment on the status but it’s clear he saw it as he liked it, endorsing Grimm’s sentiments. No word on whether Mark Zuckerberg will actually contribute to ‘Ye’s financial comeback. The least Yeezy can do is reach out through the proper channel. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
