Just when we thought that all signs of Kanye West and Amber Rose ever having been together from 2008 to 2010 were expunged (save for two of Kanye’s best songs, “Runaway” and “Heartless”), a Twitter rant set off by Wiz Khalifa’s use of the phrase “Hit this kk and become yourself” led West to look like a narcissistic anger monger–though he comes off that way most of the time in general. His misinterpretation of the initials “kk,” which he automatically assumed to refer to his wife, Kim Kardashian–since, you know, everything is about her and how she relates to Kanye–was quite embarrassing, as Khalifa was simply endorsing his own brand of weed, Khalifa Kush. And yes, there was also that part about Wiz insisting that Kanye give rapper Max B his due respect for bring “waviness” to hip hop (this came after West announced he would be changing the name of his forthcoming album from Swish to Waves).
As good pop culture duckies will know, Amber Rose was married to and has a son with Khalifa. Perhaps after seeing the barrage of approximately thirty tweets (including one that said “you let a stripper [Rose] trap you”) Kanye fired at her ex-husband, she felt the appropriate moment had arrived to call out and shame Kanye for some of his more “perverse” sexual preferences in the bedroom.
Amber Rose’s eventually cut and dried commentary?: “Awww @kanyewest are u mad I’m not around to play in ur asshole anymore? #FingersInTheBootyAssBitch”. Game over, she shut it down. For a man as prideful and self-deluded as Kanye, there is no greater insult than having his enjoyment of ass play put on blast. Now, the more he tries to deny it with statements like, “Exes can be mad but just know I never let them play with my ass… I don’t do that… I stay away from that area all together,” the more ridiculous and homophobic he seems. Because denial is always convincing, isn’t it? In any case, Rose shows exes everywhere that information is always powerful, no matter how long ago the relationship died.
