Kanye West has been slammed by Taylor Swift fans over his 2016 song Famous.
Nearly four years after the song originally released, a video has surfaced on social media that shows a different side to the story where West doesn’t fully explain the context of a particular Swift lyric.
A feud between Kim Kardashian West, Kanye and Swift erupted upon the songs release, after the lyrics, “For all my Southside n****** that know me best. I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/Why? I made that b**** famous.”
Once the song dropped, the 42-year-old rapper claimed permission from Taylor was given to use the profound lyrics that could have tarnished her career and reputation within the entertainment industry.
A video was later released by the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kim that appeared to show this information to be correct, with Swift saying, “I mean go with whatever line you think is better. It’s obviously very tongue in cheek either way,” — after Kanye demonstrated various lyrics he was contemplating.
In what now seems to prove the original video uploaded by Kim was a heavily edited version, social media users are slamming the rapper and his wife calling them ‘frauds’ and ‘phoney’ friends to Taylor.
You can follow this Twitter thread where the video has been uploaded in chunks, but shows more than the West duo bargained for everyone to see.
Basically, the whole phone call leaked, revealing Taylor Swift never consented to being called “that bitch.”
She never lied or was a “snake.”
She was recorded illegally and manipulated by Kanye West and everyone owes her an apology.pic.twitter.com/nTZXrJo7yS
