Kanye’s good homie, John Legend, released the following statement today on Dr. West. This is not a laughing matter, please don’t bring back the suspect pirate jokes people.

“Dr. West wasn’t just the mother of a superstar. She was an accomplished, successful, beautiful woman in her own right,” Legend’s statement said. “She raised and nurtured a brilliant son with the strength and resilience to follow his dreams and to turn tragedy to triumph. I pray that he continues to stay strong during these trying times.”

Our prayers and best wishes go out to the West fam.

    You kind of can’t help but laugh. And not just at I Stay SMH. But can you imagine him saying that in that Pirate outfit. I’d be like, “What now?? Excuse me?? Aaaargh matey???”

    Those two idiots above have no sense of respect, some people are just retarded.

    My condolences to the West family.

  • Ur entitled to my opinion

    If you run a series of pirate pics you’re asking for a series of pirate jokes…Won’t make one but thought up a doosie after seeing that pic….Don’t think we should judge Dr. Jan till he’s actually been charged with a crime… we don’t know the facts folks and she was supposedly told to get a check-up with an internist… Don’t think this man should get the OJ treatment

  • and what...?
  • Secret

    Wow, it is beyond comprehension why this site continues to disrespect black folks in life as well as in death. I have to believe that the people who visit this site and run it are either retarded or just plain miserable. There is nothing and I mean nothing that is funny or humorous about someone’s mother dying.

    Yeah she is truly talented. I seen her perform No one and she sounded exactly like the radio. God definitely blessed her with a set of pipes.

    Have you guys seen Ja rules kid since they have grown, check em’ out here:

    Yea that picture of John was unnecessary and inappropriate for this particular topic…

  • leave it be

    um gymo, if you were refering to me…i was “laughing” at the comment before mine. not at the situation. you see i am a person who can walk and chew gum at the same time, therefore i can empathize with the current matter and take notice of the light-hearted things around me.

    I cannot believe the lack of respect for Dr. West. Regardless of how she passed…some one lost thier life and some one has lost their mother and bestfriend. U could have basically showed another picture of John Legend….IS IT THAT IMPORTANT that u show something funnny (well it was funny the first 5 times u showed it.) while u mention Dr. West’s death. Ya’ll need to get it together. Hire people with sense.

Aint like she was a ikon like anna nicol smith, now shes worth crying over.

  • Puff Daddy is so fine!

    A very disrespectful picture. Unnecessary!!!!! and RUDE!!!!!

    However this joke was hilarious. But told at the wrong time in reference to Kanye’s mom. God bless the boy. I can only imagine his hurt.
