More good news for Kanye West: First, fans set up a website to raise money for him after he announced that he was $53 million in debt. And now the Philly police department is reaching out with a job offer: "We R hiring," reads the tweet. "Starting salary of $47,920; u could be debt-free by the year 3122!" The tweet is complete with a photo of West's head superimposed onto an actual city cop. The Hollywood Reporter notes that the same department tweeted in December that Star Wars spoilers should be a crime. (Leaked audio has surfaced of a not-happy West backstage at Saturday Night Live.)
