Kanye West's Profanity Changed To 'Ligger' and 'Motherducker' (A Top Story)

On Tuesday Kanye West's Profanity Changed To 'Ligger' and 'Motherducker' was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Pity the Glastonbury subtitlers. Not only must they keep up with rappers rapping at high speed, they must also do so while avoiding minefields of profanity. By the end of a long festival, can you really blame these guys for giving up?

During Kanye West's headlining set on Friday, subtitlers were either having a laugh or fumbling under the pressure, if their use of words like "ligger" and "motherducker" is any indication.

"See I parked that motherducker sideways" read one caption, and another read "liggas in paris." This wasn't the only minor indignity suffered by West during his otherwise triumphant set: a so-called "comedian" named Simon Brodkin, who plays a character called Lee Nelson, ran on stage during "Black Skinhead" wearing a shirt that read Lee-Zus. See some of the most comical captions - here.
