Ohio police chief and Twitter sensation David Oliver wrote a letter to Kanye West recently, criticizing West for comparing his performances to the life-endangering tasks of police and military personnel.
The police chief is known for criticizing criminals on Twitter, where he has almost 100,000 followers. This time, he reserved his judgment for West.
“Check yourself, before you wreck yourself,” Oliver wrote.
Oliver began the letter in a highly sarcastic tone, noting that he was honored to write such an important star. He thanked West for putting his life on the line, and acknowledged that rapping must be hard work, especially given the limited number of breaths West can take.
“Without a chance to inhale,” Oliver wrote, “you could pass out and hit your head.”
In the second half of the letter, Oliver’s tone became more serious and he suggested that West join the military. He proposed that West be deployed to Afghanistan, and when the Taliban begin to fire at him, he could wrap to defend himself.
Oliver added that West could quite possibly end all wars by rendering enemies star-struck.
