Kanye West brought home $3 million for performing at Kazakhstan's President Nursultan Nazarbayev grandson's wedding.

Now, groups are furious at Yeezy for entertaining a leader infamous for the violation of human rights.

Amnesty International claims that Kazakhstan limits the freedom of speech, religious freedom, violation of worker's rights and allows to torture to continue to remain unpunished. They're upset that Kanye would ever perform for a leader who's involved in acts like this.

Jennifer Lopez, earlier this summer, received the same criticism for performing for Turkmenistan leader Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov for a $1.5 million.

Are people making more of this than it really is?
