Rapper Kanye West is not new to controversy, only this time it has nothing to do with the Grammy or Taylor Swift.
The platinum selling rapper “All Of the Lights” video has been taken down off of youtube because it is said to cause seizures.
A UK based epilepsy group called Epilepsy Action, sent Kanye’s video to be analyzed by Cambridge Research Systems, which analyzed the video using the “HardingFPA” machine.
According to reports, the research found that the rate at which the lights flash could trigger seizures, prompting Epilepsy Action to condemn the “All of the Lights” video.
“This machine looks at whether video footage is likely to cause seizures,” Epilepsy Action said in a statement.
“We have today had confirmation that it contains material that may cause seizures in some people with photosensitive epilepsy,” the statement added
The video has been pulled from YouTube.com according to the organizations reps and will be banned from television, particularly in the United Kingdom.
“Ofcom regulations mean that this video should not be broadcast on UK television,” Epilepsy Action warned. “However, it is available online in a number of places.
“We are in the process of trying to contact Kanye West’s agent, YouTube and other online sources of the video to ask that they take it down. We have also contacted MTV and other TV stations to make them aware of the issue.”
