One group of people who weren't impressed, however, are the people who attended his Brunchella church service this past weekend.

West's church services have, so far, been free - as church services usually are.

West surprised many by charging a fee for a compulsory brunch at his service at Baton Rouge Church in Louisiana, effectively forcing the churchgoers to pay for the service.

Paying to enter a church service? That's ... different.

West called the event Brunchella.

He charged R740 (US$50) for regular access and R1500 (US$100) for VIP access.

It is also considered taboo to charge for food at a church service but, it might have been okay if the food was really good.

Well, the polystyrene plate consisted of two flapjacks, tiny rashes of bacon and some extremely sparse salad.

Churchgoers complained that, on top of the terrible food, West arrived late and those who bought VIP tickets were treated the worst out of everyone.

Social media users all agreed that the Brunchella attendees got scammed.

Today, Lauryn's Fine Catering, the company that provided the food for the event took the heat off of West by taking responsibility for the mishap.

It released a statement to TMZ that said, "The catering company acknowledges it did not provide adequate food for ONE attendee and a social media post went viral."

"Kanye West and the Sunday Service collective should be disassociated with such claims surrounding the food at the event."

That was definitely way more than just one basic-looking plate.

Do you think these church folk got their money's worth?
