Twitter’s finest reactions to Kanye West’s meltdown

Time for some parental advisory Twitter beefing…

Kanye West had the Twitter meltdown to end all Twitter meltdowns last night, hitting out at rap rival Wiz Khalifa in a series of posts that he later deleted.

But thanks to the internet, the tweets, which hit out at the rapper’s “corny” music, his fashion sense and took aim at his ex-wife Amber Rose (who Kanye also dated) have been preserved for posterity.

The tweets, which contain a few naughty words, can still be found here, with Khalifa’s responses here and here.

The feud erupted after Wiz accused Kanye of stealing his new album title Waves from rapper Max B, who popularised the term “wavy”.

It’s fair to say that Yeezus didn’t come out of the whole beef too well, and after he’d deleted the tirade he tried to pretend the whole thing never happened:

The final word, though, went to Amber Rose, who shot back at Ye in brutal style – gaining over 250,000 retweets in the process.

Of course, the feud has already led to a wave (sorry) of memes and jokes. Here are some of our favourites.

Kanye’s tweets as read in the style of a Shakespearean actor.

There was Kanye baiting from all corners.

Kanye’s tweets had to be preserved.

What would Kanye be thinking today?

Kanye v Wiz was compared to the whole #flatearth beef.

People couldn’t handle Amber Rose’s response.

Today Kanye wasn’t in the mood to talk about it. Funny that.
