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.
