Kanye West and Taylor Swift are, in some way, two opposite sides of a coin. Firstly, the duo, despite their over-a-decade-long feuding history, stands of tantamount importance to the music industry. Secondly, with massive contributions to the world of pop and hip-hop, they both command a swooning fan base. Finally, in the last year, both of them have taken steps towards upping their current status, although the ‘1989’ singer clearly took the lead. Now, coming back to their feud, longtime Swift associate, Jack Antonoff, just heated the arena.

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, the 39-year-old singer aimed a potshot at the rapper. Rekindling his words for Ye, Antonoff, called the latter a “little cry baby b*tch”. The response came following ‘Vultures’ second volume release date of March 8, coinciding with the former band Bleachers’ self-titled album drop date. The post soon divided social media with the two fandoms of Swift and West coming at loggerheads under the same thread.
