Watch: Kanye West Informs Fan His Yeezys Are Fake

“These are not real. You know that right?”
In between his wedding preparations, Kanye West has found time to crush the dreams of a young man in possession of some fake Red October Yeezys — and so soon after he gave that street rapper bro a confidence boost! Apparently the rapper has only signed about two pairs in his life, but today when presented with a third, his spider senses were like *FAKE YEEZY ALERT* 
 
 
That poor kid probably spent a shit load of his parents money to get those shoes. He might have been something of a local celebrity — his whole identity tied up in those bits of lumpy red leather. But no longer, 'cause upon having them offered up to him, a filmed Kanye said, "These are not real though. You know that right? These are not real." And no, he will not sign your un-real Yeezys.
 
 
The kid replies, "Damn, you broke my heart." But hold up, why didn't he just refute the claim? Why wasn't he like, "Nah m8, I got them from such and such exclusive shop and you can't prove anything?” Conclusion: he was probably an Ebay hack who was trying to trick the IRL Yeezy into giving him an autograph anyway. It's a theory.
