Kanye West Apologizes for Latest Twitter Rant: 'I Really Didn't Mean to Use the B Word Tonight'
By Rachel McRady
Kanye West has been taking full advantage of his Twitter account lately, using the social media platform to express his innermost thoughts. And late on Tuesday night, the “Only One” rapper went on another ranting spree for his 19.5 million followers.
In his latest slew of tweets, West took aim at music critic Bob Ezrin, Taylor Swift and fellow rapper Macklemore. And this time around, Kim Kardashian’s husband wrapped up his train of thought with an apology.
I really didn’t mean to use the B word tonight … all positive vibes
“I really didn’t mean to use the B word tonight … all positive vibes,” West tweeted early Wednesday morning. It’s not clear when West used the “B word” unless he deleted the tweet or if by “B word” he meant “Bob Ezrin.”
The GRAMMY winner’s frustration came from a scathing review written by producer Ezrin earlier this week.
“Has anybody ever heard for Bob Ezrin???” he began. “What the f**k does he know about rap… I’m tired of old people that have no connection with anything trying to comment on music!”
West went on to take aim at Ezrin’s family, tweeting, “Your kids are ashamed of their dad… Sorry for speaking about kids… but could you imagine if you were Bob Ezrin’s kids… I’m so sorry for them… I will send them free Yeezys to make up for the embarrassment that you have caused your family!”
The hot-headed star also didn’t hesitate to call out fellow musicians Swift and Macklemore.
“Bro you said Macklemore was more important musically than me… no offense to Macklemore, he’s a nice human being!” West tweeted, later writing of Swift: “I made Dark Fantasy and Watch the Throne in one year and wasn’t nominated for either and you know who has 2 albums of the year.”
