Taylor Swift fans attack Kanye West – Kanye West and Taylor Swift have been involved in a lot of drama stemming from their infamous clash at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
The duo made up at the the 2015 Grammy Awards, with rumors then of a collaboration coming up between both acts.
All that good will seems to have gone south again, as Kanye seemed to attack Swift in his new album, The Life Of Pablo.
During the listening concert last night, Kanye reportedly rapped on the song, Famous: “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. / Why? I made that bitch famous.”
Taylor Swift fans are one of the largest fan bases, and as expected, they took offence at the song. Taylor’s brother, Austin Swift, led the charge, recording a video of himself dumping a pair of Yeezy’s in the trash.
Taylor’s best friend, Gigi Hadid, was present at the launch, but made it clear she wasn’t in support of the lyrics.
My attendance somewhere does not mean I agree with everything being said in the music playing there. My friends know of my loyalty.

Other Taylor Swift fans also showed their displeasure at the song.
so, kanye said that that he “made taylor famous”, but why he needs to put her name in his song for selling more? ?☕️

“I made that bitch famous” is a weird thing for Kanye West to say about Taylor Swift given that she was winning an award when that went down

Kanye, you did not make Taylor Swift famous. Go away.
