Kanye West accused of ‘inciting hatred’ for Taylor Swift
Los Angeles, July 19 (IANS) Rapper Kanye West has been accused of “inciting hatred” for singer Taylor Swift amidst their recent feud.
After their phone conversation discussing West’s controversial new song “Famous” was leaked by reality TV personality Kim Kardashian, a source close to Swift claimed that the “Gold digger” rapper “continued to attack” her, reports people.com.
“Since 2009, when Kanye West stormed the stage and ripped the microphone out of Taylor’s hand, he has been trying to rewrite history; one that includes President Obama calling him a jacka** because of his actions,” a source close to Swift said.
“For seven years, Kanye has continued to attack Taylor, attempting to incite hatred for her at his live shows and on social media, even going so far as portraying her naked in his most recent music video,” the insider continued and went on to accuse West of being obsessed with Swift.
“His obsession with and harassment of Taylor over the last seven years is unhealthy and if he were not a celebrity, he would be considered a stalker,” the source added.
West famously interrupted Swift’s speech at the 2009 MTV VMA Awards.
The two appeared to have ended their feud when she presented him with the MTV Video Vanguard Award at last year’s event. But they began feuding again after West’s single “Famous” was released earlier this year.
