Taylor Swift’s Brother Has a Bold Response to Kanye West After Rapper Unveils Shock Lyrics About Singer in New Song

Taylor Swift and Kanye West have bad blood between them – again.

West infamously interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech when she won Best Female Video at the 2009 MTV VMAs. A controversy ensued, but the two have since made a show of being friends.

However, on Thursday, while debuting his new album, “The Life Of Pablo,” West surprised some fans by reigniting his feud with Swift.

The song “Famous” contains a crude lyric about Swift in addition to the claim that West “made that b***h famous.”

Swift’s brother Austin Swift wasn’t having any of it.

“Getting a head start on some spring cleaning…” was Austin’s caption to a video of himself throwing away his Yeezy sneakers, a shoe line associated with West.

Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again.

“Here we go again,” he added.

West attempted to defend himself in a Twitter rant.

In a statement to Entertainment Weekly, a spokesperson for Swift said that “Kanye did not call for approval” about the song.

The spokesperson added that West did “ask Taylor to release his single ‘Famous’ on her Twitter account.”

“She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message,” the representative added. “Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, ‘I made that b***h famous.’”
