Getting off on the wrong foot! After Kanye West unveiled a song off his new album, The Life of Pablo, on Thursday, February 11, in which he rapped about having sex with Taylor Swift, the singer’s brother, Austin, posted a video to Instagram of himself throwing out his Yeezy sneakers.
During the Yeezy Season 3 fashion show at New York Fashion Week, the controversy-courting star played a song called “Famous,” in which he raps, “I feel like me and Taylor might have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous.” The line is a reference to him swiping the microphone before her acceptance speech during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.
Taylor has yet to respond to the lyric, but her younger brother posted a video of himself taking his Yeezy shoes off of his shelf and tossing them in the trash.
“Getting a head start on some spring cleaning,” Austin, 23, captioned the post. “Here we go again.”
Taylor and West had seemingly made amends since their infamous 2009 moment. She presented him with the Vanguard Award at the 2015 VMAs, praising him as having had “one of the greatest careers of all time.”
