Kanye West video update

25 Feb 2011

The Kanye West music video for his latest single All of Lights has been put back on YouTube, this time with a warning that it could trigger seizures in people with photosensitive epilepsy.

On Tuesday, we received confirmation from Cambridge Research Systems that the video was likely to cause seizures in some people with photosensitive epilepsy. We immediately contacted YouTube and Kanye West’s agents to ask that the video be taken down. We issued a statement warning people with photosensitive epilepsy not to watch the video. The video was then taken down yesterday morning.
