Houston Screening Of Kanye West's "New Slaves" Video Shut Down By Police

The Houston Police Department ended multiple screenings Friday night.

Friday night became another opportunity to see Kanye West's video for "New Slaves" on buildings across the nation.

In Houston however, the Rothko Chapel screening came to an early end as police were not feeling the situation and shut down the event. According to the Houston Chronicle police shut down the visual scheduled to show on the Rothko Chapel, Central Library downtown.

Despite an apparently respectful crowd police pulled up onto the grass, flashed lights and sirens and told everyone to leave before they were to be arrested; people then cleared.

The library screening was canceled at its scheduled time due to technical difficulties. It was rescheduled at a later time that night until police showed up..

Kanye announced that his latest video was to be projected at 24 new locations on Friday. Among the other cities in the United States that was to be projected were Philadelphia, Atlanta, San Diego, and Austin.
