In the middle of the sequel to the 2019 film “Knives Out,’ Kanye West makes an unexpected appearance in “Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery” and the internet collectively went into a frenzy.
Directed by Rian Johnson, the mystery-crime film made many pop culture references and was seen by millions when it released on Netflix on Friday 23 December.
The special appearance from Ye came when the main cast of the movie were seated at a table, opposite a mural, which viewers immediately recognised as the face of Ye.
The scene also involves an Elon Musk-like character, next to the murals and wall art which are supposed to be paintings from the classical era, while instead they’re all works of fiction.
In the mural, Ye appears to be holding a torch in one hand while wearing medieval themed clothing with a drape around him.
West’s recent Hollywood appearance came shortly after he became the topic of a lot of controversy, following several unfavourable headlines for his racial remarks he made in public.
Viewers took to Twitter to post their reactions:
