Best of 2020: The Tweet of the Year is “Kylie stinks”
Kanye West is mostly known for his music, considering he has been a staple in the rap industry for a few decades now. But, in the past few years, he’s gained lots of popularity on his social media accounts, in particular his Twitter. Alongside running for president, supporting Donald Trump and literally peeing on his Grammy Award, his tweets are far from normal. One, specifically, which he tweeted on the morning of July 22nd, simply reads “Kylie stinks.”
He deleted it shortly after, but with his 30 million or so followers, plenty of people got a screenshot of the tweet. This statement brought up a lot of questions, but it was pretty obvious that the tweet was directed toward his sister-in-law, Kylie Jenner.
Although this tweet most certainly takes the cake for best tweet of 2020, the Twitter war that ensued was even more entertaining. Kanye brought up how he wanted to divorce his wife, celebrity Kim Kardashian, and began to slander the entire Kardashian/Jenner family. He even compared “momager” Kris Jenner, Kim and Kylie’s mother, to North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un, tweeting “Kris Jong-un.”
The “beef” between the married couple, as well as between Kanye and Kim’s entire family, is not amongst the weirdest things to happen in 2020, but the tweets on Kanye’s Twitter page certainly are. For one, he posted several videos of himself peeing on his Grammy Award, which he has placed conveniently in one of the toilets in his house. He also posted over 100 screenshots of his music contracts, even though no one asked for that. In the middle of the year, he purchased a 3D printer and began to print various random objects, like “Bowl,” which was quite literally just a bowl he printed.
Unfortunately, following the 2020 general election, Kanye has stopped tweeting altogether. This could be due to the fact that his party, the “Birthday Party,” didn’t win. But hopefully, Twitter will be entertained by his tweets again soon.
