Lighter Side: Unusual job-offer for desperate A-lister

Master-of-controversy Kanye West claims to be broke – but has this global pizza company come to his rescue?

Lighter Side: Unusual job-offer for desperate A-lister
Master-of-controversy Kanye West has provided the world with some much-needed comic relief this week by claiming that he is not only broke but $53 million in debt – could one company’s unusual job-offer be the solution he’s been looking for?

The world-famous rapper took to Twitter on Tuesday, telling the world about his money woes and asking tech entrepreneur Mark Zuckerberg to invest in his ideas. (Facebook would have been our social media channel of choice but maybe we’re missing something…)

I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt... Please pray we overcome... This is my true heart...

Shockingly, multi-billionaire Zuckerberg isn’t an active user on Twitter but one company that is decided to step in with some advice and an offer.

Stop telling everyone you need dough and try kneading some dough. We got your C.V. today. You start at 9am tomorrow.

Pizza Hut’s tweet went down phenomenally well with Twitter users and the global fast-food chain quickly reacted, mocking up a Yeezy-style CV.

The skills listed include “being the greatest,” with “God,” and “Taylor Swift,” listed as references, though Swift’s name had been crossed out.
