Producer Jack Antonoff, known for his collaboration with Taylor Swift, took a direct swipe at Kanye West, referring to him as a “cry baby bitch.”
The comment surfaced after Antonoff learned that the release date for the second installment of Kanye West and Ty Dolla $ign’s Vultures trilogy coincided with the release of Antonoff’s band Bleachers’ new album on March 8.
Antonoff did not mince words, calling Kanye’s reaction to the album release date clash “hilarious” and labeling him a “cry baby bitch.”
The tweet ignited a mixed reaction from social media users, with some Kanye supporters dismissing Antonoff and others expressing support for his candid remarks.
This isn’t the first time Antonoff has expressed his disdain for Kanye West publicly. In 2022, he tweeted calling Kanye “a little bitch” amidst the rapper’s controversial statements containing antisemitic undertones.
Kanye West recently issued an apology to the Jewish community for his past antisemitic comments, which included praising Hitler, spreading antisemitic conspiracy theories, and making threatening remarks.
The apology, delivered in Hebrew, expressed West’s regret for any unintended harm caused and his commitment to self-improvement.
While the apology garnered mixed reactions, the Anti-Defamation League acknowledged it as a potential first step toward making amends.
The organization emphasized that actions would speak louder than words and that West’s commitment to change and unity would be closely observed.
