The rapper unveiled the song “Famous,” from his new album, The Life of Pablo, on Thursday, February 11, in which he rapped about having sex with the Grammy-winning singer.
“I feel like me and Taylor might have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous,” Kim Kardashian‘s husband rapped, the line of course being a reference to his infamous microphone-swiping moment during her acceptance speech at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
But while several of Swift’s buddies were in the crowd at the Yeezy show, where the lyrics were debuted, many of the 26-year-old singer’s pals made it abundantly clear they were not impressed.
My attendance somewhere does not mean I agree with everything being said in the music playing there. My friends know of my loyalty.

“My attendance somewhere does not mean I agree with everything being said in the music playing there. My friends know of my loyalty,” Hadid tweeted from the event.
Another great Swift pal, King, whose son, Leo, Swift is a godmother to, also expressed being upset at the lyrics. “I’m so sad right now & disappointed right now. I stand by my sister. Always,” she wrote via Twitter.
I’m so sad right now & disappointed right now. I stand by my sister. Always.

And while Selena Gomez didn’t actually write anything herself, one eagle-eyed fan noticed that she was quick to give her thumbs-up to Swift’s brother, Austin, who shared a video earlier in the night, showing him throwing his Yeezy trainers in the trash as news of his disrespectful lyrics hit.

Swift herself has yet to respond via social media, and another good pal, Karlie Kloss, who was also at the event, appeared to be feeling in a pretty pro-Kanye mood at the end of the night.
The stunning model posted a picture via Instagram late in the evening showing herself still wearing her Yeezy trainers.
