Kanye West Pardon Turkey


Kanye West did NOT “pardon” a turkey before his Thanksgiving dinner, despite a ridiculous report. Gossip Cop can correct the nonsense.

The absurd story comes from HollywoodLife, which claimed the rapper planned to “practice his presidential role this holiday season.” A so-called “source” was quoted as saying, “Prior to sitting down with the family for Thanksgiving dinner, he’s going to pardon a turkey.”

“It’s just Kanye being Kanye. He’s seriously running for president and is already familiarizing himself with White House traditions,” continued the webloid’s alleged “source.” The site even predicted daughter North would “get a kick out of playing with a live turkey.”

But since HollywoodLies has a habit of making up silly stories about West, Gossip Cop investigated the turkey pardoning claims. And we’re told it “never happened.” That’s right in line with a few other tall tales.

For instance, in July, the fabrication factory falsely claimed Mason Disick asked West if was going to be his “new daddy.” The month before, the outlet wrongly alleged West had “serenaded” Caitlyn Jenner with “Isn’t She Lovely” on Father’s Day. HollywoodLife isn’t the work of journalists. It’s the product of fiction writers.
