Playing Kanye West Says 'Bill Cosby Innocent' in Controversial New Twitter Rant

Why, Kanye West? Why?

The rapper, known for his tendency to go off on Twitter rants, engaged in another one Tuesday that hit a particularly controversial note, when he tweeted, "BILL COSBY INNOCENT !!!!!!!!!!"

More than 50 women have accused Cosby of drugging and/or sexually assaulting them. He has denied all wrongdoing.

No explanation is given for Kanye's Cosby tweet, which was posted after tweets attacking Puma and an apology to Michael Jordan (more on that below). Afterwards, fans expressed shock and confusion over the Cosby tweet.

Kanye's tweetstorm seemingly began over Kylie Jenner, who reportedly signed a seven-figure deal Puma, according to Us Weekly.

Kanye, who has a shoe line with Adidas, didn't hold back, writing this fiery tweet: "1000% there will never be a Kylie Puma anything. That's on my family! 1000% Kylie is on Yeezy team!!!"

"Puma we gone give you your measly million dollars back!!! Never try to divide the family," he continued.

Kanye then apologized to Michael Jordan, presumably for his diss track against the basketball star's Nike shoe brand, writing, "I'm sorry Michael Jordan I love and respect you. My beef was with Mark Parker. I respect you so much!"

"Wow this is pretty cool ... good job NIKE team... Lebron is my brother," the 38-year-old rapper said in another tweet promoting LeBron James' new Nike shoe, posted after his eyebrow-raising Cosby tweet.

Kanye tweeted shortly thereafter that he was "in the booth."

The rapper's newest album, which he's asked fans to guess the new title of from it's acronym (T.L.O.P.), is premiering in New York City's Madison Square Garden on Thursday.

Though Kanye seems to have moved on, Twitter users are still demanding that he address or explain his controversialbCosby tweet.
