Kanye West is being slammed for serving sushi off naked women at his 46th birthday party.
The Internet has been buzzing ever since Kanye West included the Japanese practice of Nyotaimori, which involves serving sashimi or sushi off the naked body of a woman, at his party.
Many are also questioning his parenting as the event was also attended by his 9-year-old daughter.
During a nyotaimori event, a naked woman, often a professional model or hostess, serves as the human platter. The woman lies on a table or platform, adorned with strategically placed leaves or flowers, and sushi or sashimi pieces are meticulously arranged on the female’s body. Guests then partake in the sensory experience, using chopsticks or their hands to savor the delicacies directly from the body.
The Japanese practice of Nyotaimori has faced criticism and controversy, primarily due to its objectification of women and its sexualized nature.
There’s been some outrage on social media after photos and videos from West’s birthday showed sushi being served off a nearly-naked women.

I’ve had naked sushi once at a club, it’s not as glamorous as they make it out to be. https://t.co/W9ni4sF3Os

This is my issue with Kanye – he was making such an issue about Kim letting North (whilst supervised) on tiktok, but thinks an adult party where naked women are lying on tables with sushi covering them is an acceptable environment for a child… https://t.co/MRGI6Zn1f8
