Jesus Kanye! Life-size sculpture depicting rapper as Christ erected in Hollywood

A life-size gold sculpture depicting rapper Kanye West as a crucified Jesus Christ, called “False Idol,” has surfaced in Hollywood. The Oscar-like statue appeared on Hollywood Boulevard on Wednesday and is a representation of the way in which society idolizes celebrities, until they crucify them. “The piece is as critical of us as consumers as it is of Kanye himself,” the street artist behind the creation, ironically named “Plastic Jesus,” told the Hollywood Reporter. While West

isn’t nailed to a cross, he’s positioned in the same outstretched stance, wearing a crown of thorns, a simple cloth and, naturally, his Yeezy Boost 350 sneakers from his shoe collection with Adidas. “[West is] a genius at writing and producing but he’s not a God, and that’s where we put him. Until there’s an issue in his life or a hiccup in his career, then we crucify him,” said Plastic Jesus.  READ MORE

A simple look at many of the television series and films, with their bold anti=God, anti-Christian themes speaks volumes about where the mindset of the majority of entertainment powers are in Hollywood. This is just following in that tradition of God bashing.

  6. “If you are a Christian, stop worshiping Jesus and calling His name out loud. Instead you be Jesus” – The doctrine of hip hop. Are we then surprised at this? Whether Kanye did it or not?
