On social media, netizens are angry at West for allegedly sampling songs without permission. The “All of the Lights” rapper has been accused of being disrespectful towards artists whose songs he has used on his albums.

One person on X said, “Stealing people’s art is completely outrageous and weird.” Another asked, “Isn’t this illegal? Kanye needs to be called out wtf?!?!

A third person commented, “Oh he shouldn’t have disrespected Donna Summer’s legacy like that.”

Among the criticisms, others argued that the rapper had found a “loophole” by changing the words of the song.

a person wrote, “Guys, if the words were changed, made it completely different, it means he no longer used her song, someone else’s song adds to the fact that he used her song or Sound is not used. Obviously it’s inspired by his song, I’m just saying that he didn’t use his song or voice illegally, so legally he didn’t do anything wrong and morally we (artists) can’t use his song or voice illegally. And this is also not wrong.

He added, “I think because it’s Kanye, it automatically looks bad. She said no, she did what the law says, which is not to use her words or voice without permission.”
