When the video surfaced on social media in 2021, fans were quick to warp the video to their own perception. Chance commented that people were to go as far as putting fake captions to the video. The Video depicted Ye in a room surrounded by friends, but as Ye grew more irritated with the situation, the video captured Chance on the receiving end of Kanye’s outburst.
