Kanye West posted on Instagram that his upcoming Los Angeles show has been canceled, just hours after his bombshell interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel.

In the post, which was quickly deleted, he wrote, “My Sofi Stadium show on November 4th just got canceled. I wonder if it had something to do with my White Lives Matter tee, what y’all think?”

He also shared a screenshot of a text message telling him that SoFi is not available, due to the inability to staff the event.

“I just got news from Vaughn, that Sofi isn’t available any longer due to inability to staff the event on the current notice. I’ve already asked twice to investigate further if there’s anyway to make it happen regardless, but they got back with a firm no,” the screenshot of a text from Niklas Bildstein said.
