Taylor Swift‘s younger brother Austin is not happy with Kanye West.

The protective sibling took to his Instagram account on Thursday, after he heard West’s new song “Famous,” in which the rapper says, “For all my Southside n—-s who will know me best / I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, I made that bitch famous / God damn / I made that bitch famous.”

The lyrics allude to the 2009 MTV VMAs when he interrupted Swift’s Best Female Video acceptance speech.

Swift, 23, shared a video showing him throwing away a pair of grey Yeezy 350 Boosts in the trash.

Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again.

“Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again,” the University of Notre Dame alum captioned the footage.

Swift, 26, previously shared that she and West, 38, were on good terms telling Vanity Fair in August, “I feel like I wasn’t ready to be friends with him until I felt like he had some sort of respect for me, and he wasn’t ready to be friends with me until he had some sort of respect for me.”

In addition, Jay Z was the one who reconciled the feud. “Kanye and I both reached a place where he would say really nice things about my music and what I’ve accomplished, and I could ask him how his kid’s doing.”

Interestingly to note, Jay Z was at Madison Square Garden according to West, who premiered his new album, The Life of Pablo at the arena as well as streaming the event live on Tidal.


Swift, who has yet to respond, was not the only one who was called out inT.L.O.P. Ray J, Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are among the names dropped in West’s new songs.
