Here’s hoping Kanye West isn’t a New England Patriots fan — because the Super Bowl-winning team’s cornerback Brandon Browner isn’t down with the rapper. After West pretended to hijack Beck’s Grammy moment (in honor of Beyonce and “real artistry,” he later said) last weekend, Browner took to Twitter to slam Kim Kardashian’s husband.
“KANYE WEST is a sucka!,” the NFL pro tweeted on Tuesday, Feb. 10. “Everybody don’t listen to Beyoncé. Second time he tried to steal somebody shine. First time it was a 15 yr old girl.”
Browner is, of course, referring to 2009, when West intercepted Taylor Swift’s MTV VMA win. (She was actually 19-years-old at the time, but point taken.)
Tom Brady’s teammate went on to argue that West’s excuse that he’s a creative genius is bull as well. “Kanye try and play that I’m weird because of my genius,” he tweeted. “Non of the greats pull that stupid ish. Meaning Marley, Mike Jack, Tupac, Jayz etc.”
And Browner didn’t stop there, either. In fact, he used his own creativity to slam the artist some more.
“Peep who he tried Beck and Taylor Swift. Real tough guy. If only I could’ve been Beck for one night. Kanye would be rapping thru the wire,” he wrote, referring to West’s song “Through the Wire” while implying he would’ve punched him in the mouth causing him to need dental work.
Following the buzzed-about moment, West, 37, told E! News that Beck should “respect artistry” and should’ve given his award to Beyonce. However, during an interview with Ryan Seacrest on Wednesday, Feb. 11, the rapper retracted his statement and said he didn’t mean any disrespect to Beck.
“I think it came off the wrong way, and that was a mis-wording on my part, because obviously Beck is one of the most respected artists and respects artistry,” he explained during an on-air interview. “But I felt — and this is my opinion and he’s his own man and he’s not wrong and we’ll still go play basketball and stuff [unless] he doesn’t want to do it — that even though the Grammys sometimes give awards to people who you wouldn’t think should win in the category, as a respect to artists, we [should] mention the other artist’s name in our speech.”
