Rapper Kanye West went on another Twitter rant last night, so tough luck if you were on the Internet then trying to get news about the Republican Nevada caucuses. The subjects of his ire this time? Mostly, record producer Bob Ezrin—but also, he got in a not-so-subtle dig at pop star Taylor Swift.
It all started when Ezrin—who has worked with Lou Reed, Pink Floyd, and, yup, Taylor Swift—published a critical, pretty out-of-touch review of Yeezy's music that compared him unfavorably to Jay-Z and, weirdly enough, Macklemore. West, however, wasn't having it.
The rant got personal:
And threw shade at Macklemore:
And, oh yeah, insulted someone who was probably Taylor Swift:
Swift won album of the year for both 1989 and Fearless.
He later apologized for using the "b-word," which, in this context, is presumably "bro" (especially since West sees "bitch" as a term of endearment). But the damage was done, including to Bob Ezrin's Wikipedia page, which was amusingly vandalized almost immediately after Kanye's rant (it has since been fixed):
People on Twitter were both amused and concerned:
Here's hoping Kim Kardashian deletes her husband's Google alert for his name.
