Fans simply cannot wrap their heads around the sky-high menu prices allegedly featured at Kanye West's listening party for his album, Donda.
On Thursday evening, the 44-year-old rapper filled the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, with both the sounds of his 10th studio album and the presence of A-list listeners, including estranged wife Kim Kardashian, estranged sister-in-law Khloe Kardashian, Caitlyn Jenner, 50 Cent, Lil Kim, A$AP Rocky and 2 Chainz.
Given the caliber of attendees, perhaps the stadium's outrageously expensive food items were not considered so outrageous by those who actually had the option to purchase?
According to a photo of the arena's "event day menu" posted online, sweet and salty kettle corn (which was listed as being gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan) was $35; an assorted snack basket (which contained gluten-free chips, bars and jerky) was $65; crispy chicken tenders were $50; all-beef kosher franks were $40; and cookies and brownies (which were listed as being vegetarian) were $45.
The bottom of the menu read, "Please see your suite attendant to order," making clear that all food orders were to be in by 8:30 PM and beverage orderers by 9:30 PM.
One person online claims that the prices listed in the now-viral photo "are for suites, as in boxes for groups. It's not 1 order, it's a whole suite."
Still, it's unclear how many people occupied one suite and how many mouths one order of something fed.
The rapper's rep has not yet gotten back to us – neither about this, nor about the whereabouts of the album – but leave it to Twitter to provide hot take after hot take:
- "#DONDA back there cookin or sum?"
- "They mean real dollars or Ush Bucks? Because……."
- "I'll never complain about theater prices again."
- "Are people really paying $50 for [some] damn frozen chicken tenders??"
- "I mean. U ain't bring snacks in your purse?"
- "Kayne sure know how to make you feel poor."
- "I hope those are calories and not prices....."
- "They forgot to put the decimal point in between each digit."
- "S--t better raise your credit score when you eat it."
