Kanye West Music Video Pulled Off Of Youtube


Kanye West’s music video for All of the Lights has been pulled from Youtube because it may cause people with photosensitive epilepsy to have seizures. Read more after the heartbeat.

The decision was made after the U.K. charity group Epilepsy Action contacted West’s agent, YouTube and other sites that might be carrying the video to express its concern after receiving several calls from people who had seizures upon viewing the video.

The group had also issued a warning to folks who could be affected by the extensive use of flashing imagery in the West video featuring Rihanna and Kid Cudi.

On Thursday, Epilepsy Action posted the news of the video’s removal from YouTube on its site.

“We’re not quite sure yet whether it is YouTube or Kanye West’s representatives who have made this decision, or if it is a permanent move,” says the group. “For now we are delighted that our fears have been listened to and people with photosensitive epilepsy are no longer at risk.”

If you may recall, Gnarls Barkley’s video titled “Run” was sighted for the exact same thing.
