Kanye West received mixed reviews of his Coachella Easter church service. 

Yesterday (Apr. 21), the “All Falls Down” rapper-producer took his Sunday service to Coachella, along with Teyana Taylor, Chance the Rapper, and DMX.

During the church service set, renditions of “All Falls Down,” “Father Stretch My Hands, Pt. 1” “Jesus Walks,” and Kirk Franklin’s “Brighter Day” were played.

West also debuted a new track called “Water” during the performance.

“We are water / Clean us like the rain in spring / Take the chlorine out of conversation,” the Chicago native sang.

Some people took to Twitter to express that they were thoroughly impressed with Kanye West’s Easter church service at Coachella and some expressed that they weren’t impressed at all.

HBO Insecure actress Nathasha Rothwell tweeted, “Yea, no. I REFUSE to support a man who proudly supports a racist, homophobic, xenophobic, transphobic, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic president who subsidized his career just because he’s selling redemption dressed up in church clothes. GTFOH.”

Some people also went as far as alleging that Kanye West is currently running a “cult.” Take a look at the mixed reactions below.
