Apparently, Kanye West’s character-check getaway isn’t going too well.

According to reports, the rapper showed up over the weekend to Common’s highly publicized benefit show at the Hollywood Palladium, and threw another one of his egotistical tantrums backstage.

The rapper was allegedly upset over his not being offered food while in the dressing room backstage. After spotting a man eating chicken, West blurted, “Why wasn’t I offered chicken? You want me to perform for free, [and] everyone is eating… why am I not eating?”

When the waitress explained that he never asked for food, ‘Ye yelled, “Well, I’m asking now!” After receiving chicken, he allegedly proceeded to take a bite and then throw the rest in the trash. Meanwhile, the rapper’s beau Amber Rose, stood silent, while other celebrities backstage watched in awe.

Nas, Ludacris, Mos Def, De La Soul, Heavy D and Queen Latifah were all in attendance for the concert.
