Twitter has easily become the fastest way to get the latest news on just about any topic imaginable. Whether you are looking for the most recent updates in sports, politics, entertainment, or drama Twitter will be sure to have it all. But the one thing everyone gets hype about seeing on their timeline: fights. There is always constant commotion occurring on this social media outlet, whether it be between famous celebrities like Khloe Kardashian and Amber Rose, or Meek Mill and Drake, or even the occasional comical scene of two kids from your hometown dukin’ it out on Twitter over who has kissed the most ladies. No matter what it is, there is always something going down, and no not in the DMs but on the TL. Recently Twitter blew up when Kanye West went off on Wiz Khalifa creating a huge twitter fight.
This all started on a calm Wednesday morning when Wiz Khalifa came at Kanye for changing his album name from “SWISH” to “WAVES”. Wiz had this to say on twitter: “Max B is the wavy one. He created the wave. There is no wave without him.” He even tweeted this link to Max B’s youtube video claiming this is “what true waves are.” Kanye either did not see these tweets at first or just ignored them. Yeezy only retaliated when Wiz tweeted this:
For those of you who do not know, “kk” is a strain of Wiz’s weed called “Khalifa Kush”. He references it in a lot of his raps and even has a whole song called “KK” dedicated to it. Apparently Kanye was oblivious to the fact that his tweet was referencing weed, but instead he thought it was in reference to his wife, Kim Kardashian’s initials. Off an assumption, Kanye responded with a serious of tweets throwing major shade at Wiz, including a list of about 17 reasons why Wiz is inferior to him. These are some of my favorites from the giant running list (#wizwearscoolpants is number one by far):
That isn’t even half of the savagery Kanye publicly tweeted. He brought Amber Rose and Wiz and her son into the fight when he tweeted: “4th you let a stripper trap you” and “12th You wouldn’t have a child if it wasn’t for me”. Amber Rose, a previous girlfriend of Kanye’s and currently back and forth with Khalifa, was not going to be brought into this mess without voicing some shade of her own. Twitter really exploded when she came at Kanye’s neck with this:
Amber was obviously holding back absolutely nothing. Her accusations of Kanye’s previous personal endeavors got the whole twitter community talking. Kanye OF COURSE, immediately denied the accusations with this tweet:
He then proceeded to delete all the other offensive tweets and returned with a more positive approach:
He included other tweets like, “I love the world bottom line and all I want is peace and positive energy”; “What’s sad is I love Wiz and I love all all my brothers and all people”, trying to reconcile his mistake of making Wiz lose “2 million followers”. Ouch.
Wiz was also sure to clarify on twitter that “KK is weed fool”. The whole beef ended with this tweet, where Kanye claimed the two had a “great convo”.
So this escapade was resolved pretty quickly, but as we all know, there will soon be new beef taken to the very entertaining social media sight that is Twitter. Everyone will take their sides and have something to say. Moral of the story: Twitter was made as a pure outlet for savagery and would be pretty boring without the frequent twitter fight or two.
UPDATE (February 10, 2016):
After all of this drama caused by Kanye’s choice to change his album title to WAVES, he has now decided to change the title. Again.
The NEWEST album title Kanye has chosen is TLOP. People all over twitter have been coming up with ideas of what this mysterious acronym could stand for. Check out some of the most hysterical ones here at E! News’ website.
