Kanye West BRITs performance cleared over language complaints

Kanye West's controversial performance at the BRIT Awards in February (15) has been cleared after it garnered 151 complaints from TV viewers.

The Stronger hitmaker stunned the audience with an expletive-laden rendition of his track All Day at the London ceremony, prompting chiefs at U.K. network ITV to mute a large chunk of the performance.


Bosses at British regulatory body Ofcom received 151 complaints about the broadcast but they have ruled there will be no action taken against ITV as they believe appropriate measures were taken to censor West's performance on the night.


A spokesperson for Ofcom tells WENN, "We received a number of complaints that Kanye West's language, shortly after the watershed, was offensive but we will not be taking the matter forward for investigation. Having carefully assessed these complaints, we noted that before the program ITV took steps to ensure that offensive language was not used, and during the program to mute the majority of it."
