Kanye West's Sunday Service bumped a transgender musical performance at Paris Fashion Week over the weekend.
French transgender female Phia Menard was set to perform until her show got canceled so West could present the gospel and worship with his Sunday Service choir.
Reporter Rana Moussaoui explained:
But French trans performer Phia Menard was furious that her "Maison Mere" ("Mother Ship") show was pulled at just one day's notice to make way for the golden couple of American pop culture, claiming the audience was told it was cancelled for "technical reasons."
Menard — one of the discoveries of the Avignon festival in 2018 — refused to take the news lying down, with her and her fans lambasting the theatre and West as an "imposter" on social media.
She accused the theatre of lying "so they could cash in on a religious ceremony and the money the Donald Trump-supporting rapper" could pay them, the 49-year-old juggler wrote on Facebook Monday.
Menard said she felt she had been treated with "contempt."
"I am an artist, a trans woman, the director of a company, and I refuse to accept this denial and contempt," said the performer, who transitioned in 2008.
