Taylor Swift's brother reacts to Kanye West lyrics about his sister

Taylor Swift’s squad jumped into action as soon as Kanye West’s line apparently targeting the singer emerged on Thursday evening, but her brother had arguably one of the strongest responses.

The rapper seemed to undermine a truce the pair formed last year after a protracted feud during his Yeezy fashion show at New York's Madison Square Garden with a song from his new album, T.L.O.P.

On a line from his track “Famous”, he raps: ”I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that b***h famous.”

His lyrics drew ire from Gigi Hadid, Ruby Rose, Jamie King and a number of Swift’s other friends, while her brother Austin Kingley Swift reacted with an Instagram video of a pair of what appear to be Yeezy trainers being thrown in a bin. “Getting a head start on some spring cleaning,” he wrote. “Here we go again.”

And of course, his post was liked by Calvin Harris, Selena Gomez and other members of Swift’s group.

West famously ignited his feud with Swift by invading a stage at the 2009 MTV VMA awards while she was giving an acceptance speech and declaring that Beyonce was the most deserving winner in the Best Video category, uttering the infamous line: “I’m a let you finish, but…”

Angered Swift fans have questioned West's claims that he made her famous in furious posts on social media. More than 20 million viewers watched his fashion show, which came after West had spent a week teasing fans about his album title and causing controversy with a Twitter rant that included a claim Bill Cosby is innocent.
