Fans Are Upset Kanye West Walked on Water at Sunday Service in Georgia

West and his Sunday Service choir walked on water over the weekend in Fayetteville, Georgia.

Kanye West and Joel Osteen are catching fire for West’s latest Sunday Service events hosted over the weekend in Fayetteville, Georgia. 

Since Kim Kardashian typically is present for these religiously charged events, she shared footage of West mimicking The New Testament story of Jesus Christ walking on water. Peter, one of the disciples also walked on water during this biblical story. Joined by his children North and Saint, Kanye walked across a pond during the sunset service, which was one of two services.

The choir was also a large part of the services. They joined West in the middle of the pond and performed numerous songs including “Ultralight Beam.” According to TMZ, Osteen performed a water-based sermon.

When the videos and footage from the event popped on social media platforms, fans immediately began sharing their thoughts. There were quite a few instances where individuals shared their distaste for West and Osteen’s Sunday Service. 

There were some takes that didn’t find anything discomforting about the “walking on water” bit.

Attendees of the service included Monica, La La Anthony, 2 Chainz and countless others. 150 people were reportedly in attendance and social distancing guidelines were followed. Unsurprisingly, the Sunday Service went viral. If there’s anything that Kanye West is good at, he’s damn good at staying fixated in the public eye.
