Ruby Rose Slams Kanye West Over That “Taylor Swift” Lyric

SHARE

Ruby Rose took to the Twitterverse to defend her friend Taylor Swift in the fall out of those new Kanye West lyrics today.

Just hours after West, 38, debuted his new album — which, includes the lyrics to the song “Famous” stating:

“I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why, I made that b*tch famous / God d*mn / I made that b*tch famous”

Rose, 29, stood up to the rapper via Twitter:

“Too many lines crossed,” Rose tweeted early Friday. “If I put myself in the shoes of the women he has hurt recently. Victims of Bill Cosby, The Slut shaming, Amber [Rose]…” (Rose referring to West’s stance on Billy Cosby’s rape allegations and the now-resolved Twitter feud with his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose – both of which catapulted to the top of trending topics this month.)

Rose continues: “And now my dear friend Taylor.. Right before another huge moment for her.. Can I still support him and call myself a feminist? A friend? No.”

Taylor’s brother Austin and other loyal squad came to her defense and Rose received some backlash online. To which, the Orange Is the New Black star tweeted, “Apologies. Let me go do some more TV work so my opinions can be valid. What was I thinking.”

Hours later, Rose made it quite certain that she very clearly understood the situation, tweeting, “I was talking to Taylor last night. I wouldn’t comment on something before doing due diligence.”

And finally finishing up by saying: “I’m a fan of progress. All progress. Progress towards equal rights. That unites us as one. No homophobia, no racism, no sexism. Period.”

Swift’s reps told PEOPLE the singer did not approve the lyrics and “cautioned him” about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message”.

West claimed on Friday morning that Swift inspired the song and “gave her blessings.”

While everyone thought that Kanye and Taylor Swift had put 2009 behind them, Kanye has clearly re-surged the beef between the duo. No fear, Taylor! Ruby’s got your back!
