Kanye's 'All Of The Lights' Video Causes Seizures... Yeah, Really.
It must really be time for Kanye to work on a new album, because here again comes yet another My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy blunder. Ye's new video for "All Of The Lights" has been tagged a health hazard to those who suffer from epilepsy, a chronic neurological disorder characterized by seizures. It was reported earlier that the opening and ending scenes may cause seizures, but UK charity group Epilepsy Action says they've received calls from people claiming they suffered seizures after viewing.
As a result 'Ye's video was temporarily taken off YouTube with EA posting this letter on their site:
“We contacted Kanye West’s agent, YouTube and other online sources of the video to ask that they take it down. The video can no longer be viewed on YouTube and has been replaced by a message saying ‘this video is no longer available.’
We had started to receive calls from people who have had a seizure after watching the video, so we are really pleased it has been taken down. 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. For now we are delighted that our fears have been listened to and people with photosensitive epilepsy are no longer at risk.”
The video however is back on YouTube, but with the following disclaimer:
WARNING: This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised.
