When the U.K.’s annual Glastonbury Festival announced Kanye West as a headliner this year, people were outraged. One of them is even trying to force him out with a petition, which currently has over 134,000 signatures.
The online betting site Ladbrokes is banking on these anti-Kanye feelings and recently set the odds at 2:1 that the rapper will be booed off stage. They’ve also put the odds that he’ll be late by an hour or more at 5:4.
If you’re looking for riskier bets though, Ladbrokes is putting it at 100:1 that Kanye and Kim will mud wrestle.
The Foo Fighters recently had to drop out of Glastonbury due to Dave Grohl breaking his leg, but the frontman told NME his thoughts on the Kanye controversy, saying, "It could be the greatest show of all time [or] it could be a f***ing disaster. It could be Altamont."
Altamont refers to the chaotic 1969 concert in California which resulted in four deaths in the audience.
It’s unlikely that Kanye’s Glastonbury performance will inspire that sort of violence, outside the very slight possibility of a Kanye vs. Kim wrestling match.
Glastonbury begins today, but you can watch a concert without the mud pits on Yahoo Live. Tonight, metal band Darkest Hour is playing at 7 p.m. PST.
