Controversial rapper, Kanye West is speaking up about the ills of social media and how the desperate need for validation has led a lot of people to take their own lives.
Kanye took to his Twitter and Instagram to share his opinion on the obsession for likes and followers and the need for social network CEOs to come together in “a live-streamed meeting” to address the issue.
The 41-year-old wrote, “There are people who are committing suicide due to not getting enough likes. Seeking validation in the simulation. We need a live-streamed meeting with Jack Dorsey Kevin Systrom Mike Kreiger Mark Zuckerberg and Evan Spiegal”.

He wrote further that he would like use social media without the option of showing the number of likes or followers he has as “having your amount of likes on display for the world to see and judge is like showing how much you have in your bank or having to write the size of your d**k on your t shirt”.
Kanye has received a lot of praise for his opinion.
