Kanye West and Ariana Grande seem to have ignited their own feud after the latter casually laughed off Ye’s Twitter tirade. Ye accused her of trivializing mental health.
On Thursday, Ye went into a long feud with Drake, saying that the rapper is unnecessarily holding onto a grudge under a false pretense that Kanye told Pusha T about Drake’s son. He added that the rapper has been picking on people with mental health issues.
Grande took to Twitter to write, “Guys, I know there are grown men arguing online rn but Miley and I dropping our beautiful, new songs tonight so if y’all could please jus behave for just like a few hours so the girls can shine that’d be so sick thank u.”
Miley, whose cover of John Lennon’s War Is Over also just dropped, replied to Grande, saying, “Didn’t they hear the news ?! War IS over ! Thank you , next!”
Additionally, Sophie Brussaux, the mother of Drake’s son, replied to Grande’s tweet saying, “I would hardly call Kanye arguing with himself ‘grown men.'”
West did not take this casual diss lightly, and took to Twitter to write, “I know Ariana said this to be cool and didn’t mean no harm but I don’t like even slightest level of slight commentary from someone I know loves and respects me.” Ye did not reply to Cyrus.
He continued, “People will no longer take mental health for a joke.” He later added, “All of this foolishness weighed on my mental health so @ArianaGrande you know I got love for you but until you’re ready to really make sure everyone’s ok don’t use me or this moment to promote a song.”
Grande took to Twitter to explain herself, writing, “With all due respect, I don’t need to use anyone to promote anything. Period. I was making a comment ab what men were doing at the time vs. women. It was a joke which I understand now was probably insensitive. I apologize if I was in any way triggering and hope u feel well today.”
Both of these tweets have now been deleted.
West has been open about his mental health struggles in the past. The rapper was in the hospital for a week in 2016, and wrote on Twitter, “No one would ever choose to end up in a mental hospital and diagnosed with a mental disorder but god chose me to publicly go through this journey and it is beautiful.”
West has not wrote anything further about Grande’s tweets.
