The French Bakers Association have issued a remarkable statement after Kanye West criticised the length of time it takes to get a croissant in France.
One of the year's most dissected albums, 'Yeezus' found Kanye West in confrontational form. Feminist groups lashed out over his treatment of women, while repeated use of the n-word found the rapper in hot water with African American activists.
However this next row is... remarkable.
At one point on 'Yeezus' the rapper states: "In a French-ass restaurant / Hurry up with my damn croissants". Bizarrely, this has prompted a lengthy reply from the French Bakers Association. In it, the organisation take issue with Kanye West's statement 'I am a God' before suggesting that he uses his omnipotence to make his own damn croissants.
"We could easily let this water pass under the bridge, as they say, but we take your lyrics very seriously" the statement reads. "From the other lines in the song, we have come to understand that you may in fact be a 'God'. Yet if this were the case — and we, of course, take you at your word — we wonder why you do not more frequently employ your omnipotence to change time and space to better suit your own personal whims".
"For us mere mortals, we must wait the time required for the croissant to come to perfect fruition, but as a deity, you can surely alter the bread’s molecular structure faster than the speed of light, no? And with your omniscience, perhaps you have something to teach us about the perfect croissant. We await your guidance and insights."
