Even Celebrities Have Had Enough of Kanye's Shit

West and Twitter are always a heady mix, but when Rihanna unfollows you, it might be time to step back.

This article originally appeared on VICE India. The only person whose Twitter account might be more divisive than Donald Trump’s right now might be Kanye West's. Which is fitting since Ye seems to have gone HAM for Trump, signed MAGA hat and all.

West has published dozens of tweets on a number of topics, including his love of Trump. "You don't have to agree with Trump, but the mob can't make me not love him," he said. He also compared their dragon energy, which is Charlie Sheen levels of Bruh, wut?

Even as debates rage over his follower count in wake of these tweets, the only thing that matters is that Rihanna unfollowed him with no explanation.

Ice-T also tapped out, as did Teyana Taylor, Travis Scott, Cyhi The Prynce, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, Harry Styles, Kendrick Lamar, John Legend, and Chrissy Teigen.


Chance The Rapper tried to explain West’s politics, even as John Legend went deep with perhaps the longest and most educational subtweet.

Jaden Smith tweeted “false idols,” which is pretty much how we’re all feeling right now.

Then, the rest of twitter came out in full force with all the drags.

and maybe we’ll get a new Jordan Peele movie out of this.

Kim K, forever ride or die, had a lot to say, bandying about mental health casually, and put a word in Ye’s ear, which gave us the most Kanye tweet of all time.
