Kanye West Booed At Thanksgiving Day Parade

Crowd chanted Taylor Swift's name — and worse

November 29, 2010 3:18 PM ET

Kanye West's performance during Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade seemed peaceful enough on television — but in fact the crowd around his float was rather unruly, as this YouTube footage reveals.

As the float approaches, the crowd can be heard yelling things like "You're an asshole, buddy" and "Jump!" They also repeatedly shout Taylor Swift's first name.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
