Kanye West's 'All of the Lights' video could trigger seizures in photosensitive epileptics

kanye-west-gi.jpgKanye West's flashy new music video for "All of the Lights" is taking heat from Epilepsy Action -- a U.K. based charity group that provides information about epilepsy and seizures.

The video, which features Rihanna and Kid Cudi, was supposedly removed from YouTube according to E! News, after concerns were voiced about viewers with photosensitive epilepsy.

Epilepsy Action reached out to West's agent and YouTube, as well as other sites that were carrying the video. They worry that the video would trigger seizures in people suffering from the disorder.

The organization issued a statement about the video's removal, saying "For now we are delighted that our fears have been listened to and people with photosensitive epilepsy are no longer at risk."

The removal was not permanent however, as the video is still available on West's VEVO page with the following disclaimer:

"WARNING: This video has been identified by Epilepsy Action to potentially trigger seizures for people with photosensitive epilepsy. Viewer discretion is advised."

Hopefully those at risk will heed the warning. We would rather not be forced to follow this story up with news of an impending lawsuit.
