MELBOURNE - Experts have warned that the latest video from rapper Kanye West could trigger epileptic seizures.
People with photosensitive epilepsy should not watch ‘All of the Lights’, featuring Rihanna, said UK charity Epilepsy Action, reports news.com.au.
The video was examined by experts at Cambridge Research Systems, who found that it contains flashes at a rate high enough to cause seizures.
Epilepsy Action spokeswoman, Aimee Gee, said: “We are deeply concerned that this video may be harmful to some people with photosensitive epilepsy.
“We are doing all we can to warn people who may be affected not to watch it … we feel it is unfortunately very likely that people may have already been affected.”
The charity said it had contacted Kanye West’s representative, YouTube and other online sources to ask that they take the video down - which has already been viewed almost five million times on YouTube. (ANI)
