A dose of his own medicine! Kanye West is known for his stage-crashing antics, but on Saturday, June 27 at the Glastonbury Festival, the Grammy-winning rapper, 38, was the one who got an unwelcome on-stage guest.
British comedian Simon Brodkin, who plays the character Lee Nelson, ran on stage as West was performing his hit “Black Skinhead.” Kim Kardashian‘s husband briefly stopped rapping as Brodkin was escorted off the stage by a security guard.
West then restarted the song and finished his set. This could be considered payback for the times West has crashed another star’s big moment. In 2009, he famously interrupted Taylor Swift‘s MTV VMA acceptance speech to declare that Beyonce “had the best video of all time.” And most recently at the 2015 Grammys, West came dangerous close to a similar situation when Beck beat Beyonce for Album of the Year.
Prior to the incident, the comedian tweeted a photo with a shirt that read “Leezus,” and wrote, “Some people were saying Kanye shouldn’t headline Glastonbury so I thought I’d give him a hand.”

After interrupting West, Brodkin (as Nelson) also shared a photo of the run-in, writing, “I Kanye’d Kanye. That was for you @taylorswift13 #Leezus.”

Neither West nor Kardashian acknowledged the incident on social media, with the selfie-happy reality star tweeting several concert pics of her hubby, sans-stage crasher.
