Kanye West tweets half-assed apology: ‘Never speak on kids again… all love’


Here are some photos of Kanye West returning to LAX after a few days away. If Kanye seemed a little bit happy to see the cameras, maybe he was. Anything to change the story after a particularly awful week for all things Yeezington. Kanye announced last week that he was switching his album name from Swish to Waves. Wiz Khalifa complained about the name change, and Kanye reacted by throwing a full-fledged Twitter tantrum, attacking Wiz, Wiz’s ex Amber Rose and their child, Sebastian. While Wiz didn’t say or do much about it, Amber tweeted one of the best comebacks ever, calling out Kanye for missing a particular thing that she used to give him. She also went on media tour, talking sh-t about Kanye. After that, Kanye deleted most of his Twitter rant and 36 hours later, he tweeted that no, he does not like fingers in the booty.

By the time the week was over, it really did feel like Amber had waged a successful counter-assault and Kanye was still reeling from how everything turned out. Or maybe not? I don’t know, Kanye might honestly believe that all of this works in his favor. After all, we all know that his album is coming out and that it’s called Waves, right? So on some level, it is a win. Of course, most of us are still thinking, “Huh, I wonder if he really does enjoy THAT?”

Further evidence that Kanye knows he overplayed his hand? He took to Twitter over the weekend to offer his version of an apology:

This is actually Classic Kanye too – act like a child, be a huge mess in public, then learn some narrow lesson from that mistake. I want to think that Kanye won’t attack any child ever again. I’d also like to believe he’ll stop saying derogatory sh-t about Amber. But he’ll mess up again. And then I’m assuming Amber will tweet some more shade.

Here’s a pic of Amber over the weekend. I know she’s drinking iced coffee, from the look of it, but wouldn’t it have been great if we literally had a photo of Amber sipping tea?

    I’ll never speak on kids again…..until I speak on kids again. Since his skin is apparently micro thin, it won’t be long until he decides someone somewhere has been a big meanie to him and throws another temper tantrum.

    • Lizzie McGuire says:

      Yeah which will be in about a week or so when everyone says his album is crap, he’ll just say people don’t have the creative thinking that he has & then talk about his “process”. He’s done this way too many times. Does he ever really learn? He said he’s mature since he married Kim K & had North but I feel like he’s gotten a bit worse like he’s going Kanye circa after Amber left him.

      • saras says:

        Yup or he will be butt hurt over his SNL performance/skit! I really think they are surprised how disliked they are considering how delusional they act. Now they know thanks to Amber and the internet: )

      • funcakes says:

        Butt Hurt! Half Ass! The jokes write themselves.

        Kanye is true idiot savant because he had a gift for music and a moron in other parts of his life. Why would you pies off the one person that could blow all of tour secrets out of the water?
        He did apologize because he’s sorry, but out of fear of what other things Amber can unleash.
        And with Kanye I sure we only scrapped the surface.

      • SydneySnider says:

        Lizzie – it will be interesting to see how his album is received. Didn’t he, at one of his concerts a while back, have a fan chucked out? Apparently, he was wearing a furry mask and the fan yelled out for him to remove it. He evidently exploded, shouting that his face was everywhere, and that she (and everyone) could see it any time they wanted on the Internet. It was reported that he he asked how she or anyone else would dare/demand he deliver his art in any way other than how he needed to, what would they know about his art, how dare she heckle him, etc etc, and eventually, had his security escort her out. I think he’s bonkers.

    • Dori says:

      I think calling him an idiot savant is giving him too much credit.

  2. Aarika says:

    This beef was amazing. #Kanyeanalplaylist has to go down in the internet history books as one of the best hashtags ever. Kanye took a lost here, I have a feeling he will think twice now before mentioning Amber again.

    • Tiffany says:

      Yes it did. It is also amazing that people were still defending him after. Amber should have not said anything, etc. Long story short, he attacked an innocent child. A child.

    • Alex says:

      Kanye didn’t want to be a Meek Mill so he back pedaled as soon as he saw Muva coming. He took a HUGE L on this one.

    • Cran says:

      Amber needed to put him in his place and she did so admirably. Vulgar or not. Ye took it there all Muva did was bring him back.
      To be a parent and say the things he did about someone’s child? Even in the heat of the moment that your stream of conscious self would go there blows my mind. His talent in no way exempts his behavior.

    • funcakes says:

      This isn’t the first time he talked sh@t in public about her. For some reason the first time she let it go. Trust me when I say that was just a warning shot.
      He should consider himself very lucky because he could have had a Spearhead situation on his hands.

  3. H says:

    All I took away from this is Kanye is still a troll and Amber drives a pink Jeep to match her workout gear? #TeamFingersInTheBooty

  4. ReineDidon says:

    I think she’s as disgusting as he is. He thinks he is Jesus Christ of music and “owns” other’s child. And her answer was horrendous. Disgusting. Plus, what’s the matter if he likes “it” ? She’s sex shaming him while defending the women from being slut shamed. Lol

    • lovemesseg says:

      Amber did nothing wrong.

      If someone would have mentioned me or my kid all bets are off.

      • funcakes says:

        Man I couldn’t agree more. I would have let out more than that with the promise of more to come. Talk about me because I’m an adult and I’ll handle it., but when you pull my baby in you’re just a p#ssy x20.
        He has no clue how much he lucked out especially with the ship off fools he’s related to. Kimmy Kakes alone is just the lowest for of famewhoring alone. At least Amber will not have to explain a sex tape to her children.

      • ToxicShockAvenger says:

        I don’t understand the cheering for Amber. She reacted like a child to another child. Kanye’s rant was ridiculous but it was HARDLY going after her kid, except in that he mentioned her kid (who is too young to understand much less be hurt by what two stupid adults are saying on Twitter). No amount of tiger-mom chest-thumping hides that. If she wants to protect her baby…. try teaching him not to lose his &$))& when some moron “disrespects” him on the Internet.

    • vauvert says:

      I respectfully disagree. I didn’t care for Amber before (I have zero respect for a woman who parlays relationships with rappers and stripping into a “career” and who advises women to get “gifts” from men – no different from prostitution, in my book) but she was entitled to take him down in any way possible after he dragged her and her toddler into his beef with Wiz,

      Also, I think her response was vulgar but brilliant. She didn’t shame him. She was a participant as much as he was in a consensual sex act. How can she be shaming him for something she was a part of? The way I read it was ” you miss the sexual satisfaction I provided so you are whining”. If he chose to deny it and feel shame, that’s on him, not on her.

    • jeanpierre says:

      Well it matters to him obviously. He just had to own it, like she did. She didn’t shame him, he is ashamed all by himself.
      I am a big fan of Kanye and I think that dragging was well-deserved. Leave Amber alone. What kind of stupid outburst. I am always here for messy Kanye, I thought his twitter rant was low-key hilarious til he made it personal.

      • Cran says:

        Kanye ranted even after Wiz explained his kk reference had zero to with Kanye’s wife. Didn’t Ye acknowledge that and continue? His entire rant was personal. I only read excerpts but this is Comedy Hall of Fame and Delusion type material. If I had a map I couldn’t get from where he started to where he finished.

    • dagdag says:

      Kanye plays dirty with no filters, some people need to be splapped back with their own tools.

      And Kanye reaction shows how uptight he is. Finger playing is not really an unusual or extreme sexual roleplay.

    • Decorative Item says:

      Yep, what she said was disgusting but she was defending her baby from a very nasty, self absorbed moron. In that world homosexuality is shameful and an immediate loss of cred.She hit him where it hurt the most and shut him down hard. It’s a cultural thing that she played well. You don’t go into that arena loaded down with P.C. comebacks. Might as well go to war without ammo. You don’t have to like it, but her strategy was flawless.

      • Jwoolman says:

        She accomplished the impossible. She actually got Kanye to shut up! For 36 hours! A miracle.

      • Christin says:

        And apparently the baby’s father did not step up and say it was out of bounds to mention the child.

    • Jessica says:

      I completely agree with you, ReineDidon.

    • Aarika says:

      She didn’t say that the act was shameful. She was pointing out that he was probably missing it and that why he’s constantly attacking her. He’s been dragging her for so long, so good for her for shutting him up.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      Folks are just desperate to find a way to blame her for this too.

    • Josefina says:

      If she had talked about Kanye’s sexual preferences out of the blue, it’d been ugly. But he came after her son. And I don’t think Amber sees any shame in that, really, but she knows Kanye does. She knew that would get him to shut up.

      I think that’s why Kanye backpedaled. Amber knows ALL the shit on him.

    • Saks says:

      Amber didn’t sex shamed him. She didn’t say it was disgusting or wrong she just implied he was talking about her because he missed her for that particular activity.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      While I would never choose those words myself, and would probably have just ignored it, I don’t hold her responsible for shutting him down. He went way, way over the line with what he said about her, then he brought her child into it. I don’t think it’s reasonable to ask her to be respectful and restrained in her response.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      She’s not shaming him for his sexuality, she’s saying that maybe he’d be in a better mood if Kim was satisfying him in the way she did. Even though both Amber and Kanye have now thrown sexual disses at eachother, Amber’s diss (unlike the slut shaming Kanye has directed at her more than once) doesn’t imply that he’s lowly, shameful, or degraded because of his choice. Her comment is just about what he’s not getting.

    • go girl says:

      I took it more as “you’re just mad because no one can get you off like i used to.”

  5. Tiffany27 says:

    He’s such a punk. So you can apologize for running on stage and acting a baffoon, but you half-ass apologize for speaking on someone’s kids? Be more weak dude.

  6. minx says:

    Uh, too late buddy. Now the whole world knows about what he likes in bed.

    • Janis says:

      No kidding. It took him 36 hours to respond. He should have been a man and apologized immediately for dragging a two-year old into his BS and the whole Amber thing wouldn’t have had such a internet-breaking impact. He’s an idiot and waiting so long just comfirmed what everyone suspects about him. Kim’s non-response speaks volumes. Schedenfreude anyone??? I hope his album tanks. He deserves it.

    • Birdix says:

      what I don’t understand is–who cares what he likes? And why is this so controversial? Seems odd that Kanye (and everyone else) is so outraged/horrified by this. When did this crowd become so conservative?

      • Kitten says:

        Exactly. “Who cares?” is the first thing that crossed my mind. People are acting like this is the first time they heard of butt play.

      • Josefina says:

        I don’t think anyone’s shocked. But we all know how frail Kanye is about his manliness, which is what makes this whole thing so hilarious.

      • minx says:

        Birdix–I think what Josefina says above nails it. Nobody’s shocked (at least not me) about butt play. Who cares? But Kanye is insecure. I’m sure he and Kim were mortified by the whole thing.

  7. NewWester says:

    All I got from this Twitter mess is this: Kayne should focus on his music and stay off Twitter( Stop obsessing over Amber). Amber was upset and rightly so, but I get the feeling she was restrained in her reply. She must have more dirt she could fling at Kayne but chose not to. Also anyone find it odd that Khloe and no other Kardashians went on Twitter to blast Amber? After all she did insult a member of the “family”

  8. Livealot says:

    Let’s talk about Wiz playing KIms sex tape during his show

    • Tiffany says:

      When did this occur.

    • Tiffany27 says:

      See, this is what I truly do not understand. How can you attack someone else’s wife for being a stripper and your wife has a sex tape???? Like, how does he not see the hypocrisy?

      I’m not saying it’s ok to attack Kim for her sex tape, but what is the difference between her and Amber? Serious question.

      • noway says:

        I think Kanye’s attacking of Amber is all personal. I really don’t think he has any problem with strippers per se, but Amber is his ex and obviously he has issues with her and the stripping part is just an easy dig for him along with gold digger.

        I read the tweets and I really don’t see the outrage about the child, to me it looked more like a crazy rant on Amber and a weird mention of her son. Did I miss something or are people just more sensitive than me. If a person who didn’t know Kanye just read the tweets, you would seriously think he’s crazy, but that is par for the course. Amber’s response was gossip gold, but not so sure how good for her family, and it is a bit of shaming too. Yes tweeting without filters can be really bad.

      • Christin says:

        The way I read the tweets, it was implied that the baby was a burden — a financial trap for 18 years. And that is just inexcusable to say about anyone’s child.

    • Aussie girl says:

      I didn’t hear about that..??!!
      Anyhoodle, I think Kanye and Kim will introduce saint via the media soon. Most likely to coincide with kanye’s album release or to help with damage control.

    • jeanpierre says:

      This is untrue

    • swak says:

      Think if this were true it would be all over the internet.

    • Telly says:

      Never happened.

  9. Sure Jan says:

    He brought up her little boy in a petty Twitter beef over a word she had every right to attack him. You can say she tried to shame him I don’t care you come for my child I will drag your ass to hell and back.

  10. Lukie says:

    …but did anyone here Wendy William’s response to this whole thing?

    Amber left Kanye. Kanye is clearly still not over Amber, because he cannot keep her name out of his mouth. Kim should be worried that her husband is still obssessimg over his ex…

    • me says:

      You think Kim doesn’t think about Reggie lol? Also, do you really believe Kim and Kanye have a legitimate marriage? They are both in it for something and it ain’t love. Kim is probably happy Kanye is getting hated, it will make the divorce filing more believable.

    • Amanda G says:

      I agree with you and I think Kanye is also obsessed with Beyonce. He can’t have Beyonce or Amber and settled on KK.

  11. Cary says:

    Most men enjoy that. Gay, straight, whatever. Can we stop praising something so blatantly homophobic as “the best comeback ever”. Come on. It’s 2016.

    • Jessica says:

      Exactly. It’s not a great comeback, it’s homophobic and sex shame-y.

    • jeanpierre says:

      Homophobic how?

    • Aussie girl says:

      Yes it’s 2016 but you can’t fire off at Amber without looking at someone blatantly slut shaming a women for no reason and bringing her child into it. I guess two wrongs don’t make a right but you have to look at both sides. Oh and I realise a lot of men enjoy that, gay or straight. As do women 😁

    • Elisa the I. says:

      Ha, I’m glad about your comment. After reading all the other comments I thought I was the only one finding it homophobic.
      Most men enjoy this but are afraid to admit it (see Kanye’s reaction) because it’s considered gay.

    • Birdix says:

      I didn’t understand what the hoopla was about, wouldn’t have thought this pointed to him being gay. But seen in this light, I totally agree with you.

      • jeanpierre says:

        But how is it gay for a man to have sex with a woman? I’m very confused by this take on the situation.

      • dagdag says:

        jeanpierre, you are not the only one who is confused.

      • Birdix says:

        I meant to be agreeing with Cary that the tweet response is homophobic, seeing that this is the conclusion that everyone has drawn from her assertion. I wouldn’t have drawn that conclusion (that he’s gay) from her tweet. Sorry, not clear.

      • noway says:

        Men who are gay generally like anal, and Amber is inferring that Kanye likes gay activities by saying this and this is the way to satisfy him. Yes it was an insult by her to him. Hope that helps the confused.

      • jeanpierre says:

        I think you are the one inferring, not Amber. Men who are gay like having sex with other men. Anal have nothing to do with it.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        But not all men who want anal stimulation are gay, and he did this with a woman. If anything, it implies that she thinks Kanye is holding back on getting something he wants in bed with Kim because HE’s afraid it will hurt his “manly image.”

    • Tiffany27 says:

      I read the comment as her saying it because she knew it would embarrass him because Kanye is homophobic. Hence the reason he felt the need to respond 36 hours later.

      • Ennie says:

        Oops posted in wrong place, but from a phone , so…
        Let’s see… What pc comeback could Amber have used to shut that fool up?
        He’s been insulting her calling her names and using her former job as an insult, now he calls her baby a check or something similar… Why don’t you see that? What is a good come back for such a self involved, selfish person? Obviously something personal. And it was personal. If he finds it shameful, that’s on him. What he did was actually worse and he has WAY more power and money than her. It was an unfair awfully macho thing what he did.
        She just scratched hiw big crown a bit, just enough.

    • Fluff says:

      It’s not homophobic or shaming, because she didn’t imply there was anything at all negative about it (if anything, the opposite).

      • Birdix says:

        Her intent was to embarrass and humiliate him.

      • jeanpierre says:

        I think her intent was to shut him up and it takes what it takes to shut Kanye up. Very few people are able to do that, actually. HE thinks this is embarrassing and she knows that. He just can’t stand to be seen not being this manly man in full control sexually. That’s on him. Some people think booty fingers are gay. That’s on them.
        See I love Kanye, but he just hates women. He uses his power to humiliate Amber every chance he gets since a very long time. And she’s not the only one. The way he acted with TS. His patronizing and embarrassing way to praise Beyoncé. All things Kim. This is bad. We must stop giving him passes for that and call it for what it is.

      • Naya says:

        Sure her intent was to embarass him but it doesnt follow that what she said was homophobic. She could have asked whether he misses sucking on her toes and it would have had the same effect. The joke here isnt that he could be gay but rather that this trashtalker is submissive in bed. That and the fact that most couples dont do this fingerbooty business.

    • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

      Still not homophobic.

      She didn’t say he was wrong or sick for liking it, just if him missing it was the reason he kept attacking her.

      All the claims of homophobia are from the individual viewing the tweet and how they feel about it. If some members of Kanye’s fanbase think he’s gay for liking it then so be it. He’s the one who cultivated that image, too bad if it condemns him.

      That’s like pitying one of the Duggars if some members of their fanbase now call him a freak for sleeping with prostitites. He wanted a certain image and now he’s dealing with the consequences of that image.

      • Kitten says:

        But…was his image always that of a hyper-masculine-alpha-dude?
        I mean, he’s a fashion designer…

        I don’t think Amber’s remark is homophobic, but I think some of the public’s reactions definitely are.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        “I don’t think Amber’s remark is homophobic, but I think some of the public’s reactions definitely are”

        Yes, well said.

      • The Eternal Side-Eye says:

        Tbh over time I have noticed Kanye trying to push this hyper-masculine version of himself recently.

        I think the best example was when he was at the airport and a paparazzo kept asking him questions and Kanye said something like, “If you keep talking to me I’ll mess you up.” Pap did what they do and Kanye then proceeded to so desperately and weakly grapple with this man that all I could think was for a second he just wanted to look threatening even though he knew he couldn’t really pull it off.

        In the end he weakly apologized and rushed off.

    • Josefina says:

      I don’t think Amber sees any shame in that. But we all know Kanye does. Kanye came after her son and Amber knew exactly how to shut him up.

      More than anything I saw the comment as a threat. Amber knows ALL the sh!t about Kanye. Basically, she was saying “keep talking about my child and I’ll keep talking about your dirty little secrets”.

      People, seriously. How the hell would you react if some a-hole started saying he “owns” your son on twitter? Whatever Amber did was done for a very valid reason.

    • claire says:

      I think she said it because it would embarrass him, because he himself goes for the macho and homophobic swagger thing. It’s not inherently homophobic to like butt play. That works for any sexuality.

    • partasti says:

      Agree 100%. Maybe he can also join the hypocrite on one of her anti slut shaming slut walks.

    • vauvert says:

      Said it above but I think it bears repeating. Any taint of homophobia is in the eye of the beholder. She was pointing out that he misses a sexual gesture that she ( a woman, for anyone missing the point) used to perform during their mutual, heterosexual, foreplay. She was part of it. She brought it up. Her point was that she gave him the kind of satisfaction that he is currently not getting, hence the temper tantrum. If anyone, including Ye, chooses to take that as homophobic and insulting, that’s on him.
      Was it an insult? Yes – you’re a horny jerk who is getting no satisfaction now, and you’re missing me, is essentially what she said. Was it terribly vulgar? Of course. But apparently that’s the only way to shut up a jerk who has repeatedly brought her up, always trashing her, and this time he went even further, dragging her kid into it.
      I am not even remotely an Amber fan, based on previous statements and quotes from her book that I have read her, but I am 100% with her on this one.

  12. Loo says:

    The way Kayne acts about Amber is not pointing to him being gay. I know people hide being gay all of the time (which is their business I don’t obsess over that like others, I don’t care) but Kanye doesn’t seem gay to me, he seems not completely over Amber Rose to me. And that’s not to say that he hasn’t had relations with men because I don’t know obviously but if he were gay I doubt he’d be acting like a jealous ex-boyfriend the way he does.

    Do people not know that bisexuality exists or are they just pretending that it doesn’t because it makes the uncomfortable?

    • Josephine says:

      I don’t really care what he is, but sure, he might be bisexual. Mostly he just seems so dull and asexual to me — I can’t picture him being passionate about anybody. I think he prefers glossy pictures to the real thing. Being with Kim can’t possibly be the last bit interesting, for example, but he loves her image.

      But my take-away is the same as yours — he’s still obsessed with Amber. He strikes me as someone who doesn’t love anyone, but does become obsessed. And I have to say, the only time he struck he as evenly remotely attractive was when he was with Amber.

  13. Angelica says:

    Omg, just say sorry! Is he that stubborn that he can’t say one simple ‘sorry’ about little kids??? Don’t answer that, I already know the answer…

    Good for Amber. The opinions on her may go back and forth about whether or not it’s homophobic, but I don’t think that’s what she was aiming for. She knew that it was HE’S homophobic and wouldn’t proudly claim that it was true, but instead would issue a swift denial. It was a really genius comeback.

  14. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    Until next week when he insults someone’s child.

    Glad to be done with this joker and now in a position where I can truly enjoy his downfall.

  15. prissa says:

    Honestly, I’m just trying to understand this musical “genius” in Kanye that everyone says about him. He’s a rapper, a glorified poet if you will. And his skills do not compare to Biggie, 2Pac or Eminem, not by a long shot. Does he tell a story with his lyrics like Biggie did. Can he be socially conscious like 2Pac was? Does he have a unique flow like Eminem, who I consider to be a wordsmith. Does he even play an instrument? I’m sure the ppl I listed above don’t (or didn’t) either, but they weren’t running the streets screaming about being geniuses either. I think he came out with “Jesus Walks” blew everybody away with the content and rode that wave ever since. Then he began hyping himself and most believed his hype. True geniuses don’t have to call themselves that – they just ARE. I have never read true geniuses be the braggart that he is.

    In my opinion, he is a petulant man-child who sufferes from delusions of grandeur (and probably undiagnosed bipolar and NPD).


    • Izzy says:

      You’re not confused. He’s only a genius in his own mind, and in his marketing campaigns.

    • Josefina says:

      I think his first 3 albums are truly some of the best hip hop of it’s time. His videos had original and creative concepts, he sampled stuff nobody else was sampling. He didn’t have the best flow, but he made it work with great lyrics. His music was unique.

      Kanye went to a very dark place when his mother died. Kanye’s always been quirky, but he started becoming ‘Ye around that time. That’s why sometimes I feel bad for him. But he’s so annoying, he really makes it hard to be empathic.

  16. iheartgossip says:

    Ahhhhh Kanye, nobody cares about your lies. You cannot control yourself, and the ‘one’ you wifed up, along with her family; making you worse. Stop, Drop ‘n Roll away or keep going down the devil’s path you’re hiking.

  17. Zaytabogota says:

    Well he won’t mention the kids of anyone who can out him or make suggestions about his preferences. He’s terrified.

  18. prissa says:

    Also, what genius doesn’t know how to spell “ether” (he spelled it “either” in his tweet to Wiz)? I mean, Nas (a fellow rapper and in my opinion better rapper) had a song called Ether. How can Kanye not know how to spell that word?

    He’s just extremely annoying.

  19. Amanda G says:

    That is not an apology. That’s an, “oops, I received backlash for this and I have a new album coming out and people think I like ass, so I had better sweep all of this under the rug.” He doesn’t care one bit that he brought a child into his silly fight.

  20. Emily C. says:

    I don’t care if he enjoys “that.” It’s not unusual in the slightest. Lots of straight men like it (and lots of gay men don’t) — it’s not like straight men and gay men have different anatomy.

    I do care that he keeps slut-shaming his ex-girlfriend. He really doesn’t seem to be over her.
