Kanye West (or "Ye," as he now likes to be called) has been making headlines as of late, stumping for Trump on Saturday Night Live and irritating the likes of Lana Del Rey with his comments on the 13th Amendment. His latest stunt involves a bonding experience with his father, Ray West. "My dad and I are going to eat this plate of bugs to celebrate him beating cancer," West shared on Instagram Tuesday, posting a photo of their alleged repast. "No more fear." TMZ reports that the elder West was diagnosed with prostate cancer in July; the rapper's mother, Donda, died in 2007 after complications from cosmetic surgery, per People. TMZ notes it's not clear where Ye, who was said to be in Detroit Tuesday, found an eatery specializing in creepy-crawlies. (Read more Kanye West stories.)
