This flag made waves during Kanye West‘s Glastonbury performance on June 27.
Kanye may have shouted that his fans were “now watching the greatest living rock star on the planet,” but his Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality star wife kind of stole the show unintentionally.
While the 37-year-old rapper performed a few of his popular hits, one audience member brought a bit of a prop for his show. Right as Kanye took to the stage, a fan lifted a flag that showcased his wife, Kim Kardashian, and her famous sex tape with one of her ex-boyfriends Ray-J that she dated back in 2004, but the sex tape wasn’t leaked until 2007.
Another fan in the audience snapped a photo for Twitter and captioned the tweet: “Someone printed kim k giving ray j h**d on a flag and waved it about as Kanye performed at Glastonbury ahahahahah.”

Who knows if this was planned before the sex tape flag was waved, but Kanye decided to make a mini love speech about his wife, saying: “She brought out this poetry in me that became my lyrics. I wrote an email to her when I was working on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy and said ‘You’re my heaven and you’re my hell.’ She ended up being my wife.” But Kim, 34, didn’t seem too bothered by her past being flagged in the air. She continued to be her hubs number one fan on the Pyramid Stage, where she later ‘grammed: “Glastonbury 2015! Craziest show ever!!!”

But wait… that wasn’t the only distraction that happened during Kanye’s performance. UK Comedian Lee Nelson heard murmuring that some fans weren’t happy about Kanye headlining at Glastonbury. To “help” Kanye, Nelson ran on stage and tried to perform with Kanye, but security quickly removed the comedian after Kanye was unhappy about Nelson interrupting his show.

Nelson later took to Twitter to explain why he did what he did: “Some people were saying Kanye shoudn’t headline Glastonbury so I thought I’d give him a hand.”

But his explanation doesn’t quite seem sincere especially after Nelson’s last tweet about the Kanye stunt, saying: “I Kanye’d Kanye. That was for you @taylorswift13 #Leezus”
