Funny or Die has just come up with a “The People v. Kanye West” spoof on FX channel’s “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson” and it is really funny.
Kanye West has been in the news for his epic Twitter rants and real-life antics. The Wrap informs that “The People v. Kanye West” video mashes up West’s wildest moments with key moments from the O.J. Simpson drama with hilarious results.

They get spliced with scenes from Kanye’s interactions with paparazzi and in interviews that results in an interesting watch.
The video opens with Travolta’s “this could be the most high-profile criminal case in the history of the world.” It moves ahead with VMA footage which shows West interrupting Taylor Swift. “This is the worst day of my life,” Bruce Greenwood’s Gil Garcetti says. “It’s worse than the day I was diagnosed with cancer,” he adds.
Key highlights from the video include O.J. Simpson’s suicide note being replaced by crayon-written lyrics to “I Love Kanye.” Then there is “I just told you who I thought I was: a god.” The icing on the cake is Robert Kardashian’s (played by David Schwimmer) reaction to a topless Kim riding a bike with Kanye West.
