Kanye West Storms Stage at VMAs to Ruin Taylor Swift's Moment (Video)

Kanye West is a royal class-A jerk. Watch the lout rush the stage during MTV's Video Music Awards and interrupt Taylor Swift while she is making her acceptance speech for "Best Female Video." He grabs the microphone away from Taylor Swift and proceeds to inform her and the audience: "I'll let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time." What a jerk!

Later, when Beyonce won Video of the Year, she brought Taylor back on the stage and let her finish her acceptance speech.

To add insult to injury, after Kanye handed the microphone back to Swift, her time was up, and MTV cut to a video featuring Tracy Morgan and Eminem.

The celebrity crowd was unforgiving of West. When Diddy read West's name later in the show while introducing the nominees for best male video, the crowd booed, and Diddy said in mock surprise, "What happened?"

Update: According to a tweet from Jay-Z’s DJ, Neil Armstrong, Swift and her mother were seen backstage crying afterward. Various celebs have lashed out against West on Twitter, including Pink, who had to be escorted away from the rapper by security. / Performers Criticize Kayne West for MTV Outburst
