Ozzy Osbourne has recently called out Kanye West for using a live version of ‘War Pigs’ without asking on ‘Vultures’ song, ‘Carnival.’ Osbourne contended that despite declining a request for the use of a segment from a 1983 live performance of the Black Sabbath classic, it surfaced during a recent listening event for West’s latest album at his Chicago listening party. And now, Kanye West has responded to the claim. The rapper took to Instagram and shared the screenshot of a chat. Texting someone, the chat saw an image of Osbourne and his wife last year’s Halloween with a text, “he obviously has a celebrity handler who’s on his account”.

In his outburst, Osbourne labeled Kanye West as an “antisemite” and accused him of inflicting immeasurable pain on numerous people. Osbourne also made it clear that he wants no association with Kanye West moving forward. Before this, the Osbournes dressed up as the couple, Kanye West and Bianca Censori for last year’s Halloween. They tried to replicate a peculiar look from West and Censori’s outing in Italy where the latter was seen holding a purple pillow over her chest. Meanwhile, Ye was covered in an all-black ensemble. 

In 2010, West honored Black Sabbath’s ‘Iron Man’ on his ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ track, seemingly without any opposition from the singer. Nevertheless, his persistent antisemitic remarks and his alleged AI-generated apology in Hebrew last year have alienated him from all but his most devoted fans. And there are still many thousands, as shown by the attendance at his recent listening session in Chicago.
