Police Shut Down Kanye West
The second wave of projections taking place in the three cities during the holiday weekend were shut down by police, leaving the crowds that gathered out of luck.
According to the Houston Chronicle, three different screenings of "New Slaves" were supposed to happen in the city on Friday (May 24), but all of them were done before they even began.
Despite what the newspaper called an "upbeat, respectful crowd," those in attendance at the Rothko Chapel were told to disperse. A Vine video from Chronicle music critic Joey Guerra showed the scene, which he called "a whole lotta nothing."
Houston Police Department spokesman Keith Smith confirmed to Radio.com that approval to show the video at the Rothko Chapel had not been granted by its owners. more on this story
