You knew that it was only a matter of time before they came for Kanye West - and today it appears to be happening.
Taylor Swift went on social media yesterday, and liked a post that called Kanye a "s*xual predator."
Taylor went #MeToo on Kanye yesterday, liked a Tweet that called Kanye a sexual abuser. That "like" is causing a seismic event reverberating all over social media. And it looks like trouble is on the horizon for Kanye West
The initial tweet (that Taylor liked) claims that Kanye's music video "Famous" - which showed nude images of Taylor - amounted to "s*xual abuse."
The tweeter described Kanye's 'Famous' video as revenge porn. The poster went on to call Kanye a sexual abuser. Taylor liked the post - which suggests that she agreed with the poster.
Here's the post:
In case you're wondering where Kanye and Taylor feud came from. Buzzfeed gave a quick synopsis:
— Kanye released a song called "Famous" containing the lyric "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? / I made that bitch famous."
—He claimed to have called Taylor asking for permission to use the lyric and said she approved it.
— Taylor released a statement saying that she had warned Kanye of the song's "misogynistic message" and that he'd never asked permission to use the line "I made that bitch famous."
— Kim then released a video of parts of their phone call in which Taylor seemingly gave her permission for Kanye to use the "We might still have sex" lyric, but not the reference to her as "that bitch".
— Taylor then disappeared from public view for almost a year before returning with an album, Reputation, which appeared to address the feud in a couple of tracks.
