The Stronger star was surely far from impressed with the turnout at the Kansas City Sprint Center, but he tried to placate the audience during an eight minute rant.
According to the Kansas City Star, the 36-year-old said: ‘I don’t always say the right things at the right time.
'I'm better at saying the wrong things at the wrong time.'
And while the review also said he was ‘prowling about the expansive set like a bloodied but unbowed mixed martial arts fighter eager to take on all comers,’ it did not hesitate to stick the boot in either.
For it sniffily noted: ‘West almost certainly could have filled the Sprint Center five years ago.
'Tuesday’s poor attendance indicates how his scandalous love life, frequent impolite pronouncements and his gradual shift away from conventional hip-hop have alienated many of his fans.'
The future Mr Kim Kardashian has been forced to cancel multiple concerts on the tour due to technical difficulties.
