From the Huffington Post:
Will Kanye West be allowed at the Clooney-helmed Haiti telethon airing this Friday?
“After what he said on the Katrina telethon and the way he behaved at the MTV Video Music Awards, everyone agrees it’s just best that he does not participate,” a source told AOL’s PopEater. “Kayne has to make everything about himself. He will do anything to steal the spotlight and, well, this night it’s just not about him.”
It doesn’t take an insider to point out Kanye’s loose cannon tendencies, but “everyone” does not agree that he is disinvited from ‘Hope for Haiti.’ MTV, which is hosting the telethon, says there is no truth to AOL’s reports of a Kanye ban.
“That’s absolutely not true. We DID reach out to Kanye,” a rep told Us Weekly.
Kanye grabbed headlines at a similar telethon to raise money for Hurricane Katrina in 2005 when he went off script and said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”

[4:28 p.m. – 1/21/2010] – Kanye West Barred From Participating In Haiti Relief Telethon
As very A-list stars begin lining up like planes on a runway for Friday’s big Haiti telethon organized by Mr. George Clooney, sources tell me one celebrity was definitely not invited — Kanye West.
“After what he said on the Katrina telethon and the way he behaved at the MTV Video Music Awards, everyone agrees it’s just best that he does not participate,” a producing partner told me. “Kayne has to make everything about himself. He will do anything to steal the spotlight and, well, this night it’s just not about him.”
