Kanye apologizes on Today Show... then boycotts Today Show.

We all remember when Kanye West took to national television to tell the world that "George Bush doesn't care about black people." It was September 2nd, 2005, days into the federal governments failed response to Hurricain Katrina. A Concert For Hurricane Relief was held to raise money, and West decided to go off script so everyone knew how he really felt.

Well, it's been over 5 years, and the former president just dropped a book where he comments that being called a racist by Kanye was the worst moment of his presidency. Editors Note: This is the man who was told on 9/11 that "America is under attack." 


But it looks like W. can let the wounds from the past begin to heal. During a recent interview on The Today Show, West told hair-plug enthusiast Matt Lauer that he regrets the comment. ""I would tell George Bush in my moment of frustration, I didn't have the grounds to call him racist," the voice of our generation said.


Although West was down to let the world know he's capable of remorse, he went on to throw a hissy fit over The Today Show's use of video footage showing him upstaging Taylor Swift at the VMA's [The footage related to criticisms Kanye himself was racist against white people].


Kanye is claiming he was ambushed and is refusing to follow through with his scheduled Today Show performances. But at least George W. Bush can sleep tight...
