Kanye West Slings Low Blows at Wiz Khalifa, Twitter Reacts
Update (1/28): Wiz Khalifa has taken the war of words off-screen, and shouted “F— Kanye” to a crowd during a show in Argentina last night (January 27), according to TMZ.
Earlier today (January 27), Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa tossed a few innocuous insults at each other in reference to Kanye’s forthcoming album title. It all started innocently enough, with Wiz suggesting Kanye’s Waves swiped rapper Max B.’s “wavy” terminology. But then Kanye misinterpreted Khalifa’s tweeted “kk” weed reference as a slam against his wife Kim Kardashian.
Kanye soon began to viciously drag Wiz, drawing families, babies and integrity into the beefed-up arena. But he also complimented Wiz on his “cool pants”?
Amber Rose, who found herself unwittingly drawn into her ex Kanye’s Twitter spats once again, had this to say:

Harsh? Sure, but so was Kanye’s since-deleted Tweet to Wiz saying “I know you mad every time you look at your child that this girl got you for 18 years,” and his other (since-deleted) Tweet that told Wiz “you let a stripper trap you.”
Unsurprisingly, followers watching this public unraveling had some…strong opinions. Check them out below, and scroll all the way down for screen caps of the jaw-dropping exchange.
Kanye's a 38-year-old married man with two kids and yet still trash talks an ex from over five years ago. He's hurt.

Looks like Kanye got the same problem I do when it comes to roasts. I can only think of friendship ending burns and nice things to say.

And here is Kanye and Wiz’s Wednesday exchange:
Kim Kardashian — who, like Amber Rose, did not ask to get dragged into this — is now being flooded with finger-point and smiling poo emoji in her Instagram comments.
And as for Kanye? He regrets the error, oops LOL!
I’m happy that I now know that KK means weed… please excuse the confusion … now back to #WAVES
