Kim Kardashian West's husband was immediately criticized for the lyric, and on Friday he ranted on Twitter that it was a joke and Swift supposedly gave her stamp of approval before he released it.

The 38-year-old rapper went on to claim it was actually Taylor's idea to include that line in the song and blasted the public for "demonising real artists".
