Kanye's 'All of the Lights' Video Removed From YouTube For Inducing Seizures

An organization called Epilepsy Action got YouTube to take down Kanye West's new music video for his song "All of the Lights,according to Stereogum.

After receiving numerous calls about people being affected by epilepsy after watching Kanye's video, Epilepsy Action took a stand and made some phone calls themselves. It is unknown whether representatives at YouTube or Kanye's representatives removed the video from YouTube.

The music video has returned to YouTube. However, a message now appears before the video begins to play. It reads, "This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised."

While the video features a ton of neat flashy effects, it's easily understandable why it's not exactly for everyone. But to those whose eyes the video does not effect, I say jam on. It's otherwise a cool video. Then again, it's not like Kanye ever has anyone in mind but himself anyway.
