Taylor Swift’s brother dumps Yeezy trainers after Kanye West diss

Taylor Swift’s brother has dumped his Yeezy trainers in the bin after Kanye West rapped about having sex with his sister.


The 26-year-old singer’s younger sibling Austin has jumped to the blonde beauty’s defence after she was left publicly humiliated by the 39-year-old rapper when he debuted his new track ‘Famous’, which references getting kinky with her and claims he made “that bitch famous” with his 2009 MT Video Music Award stage invasion during her acceptance speech for Best Female Video.

Kanye deputed the track at his Yeezy Season Three fashion show in New York City yesterday (11.02.16) and prompted a response from Austin immediately.

Taking to his Instagram account, Austin, 23, uploaded a short video of him throwing his $950 Moonrock Yeezy Boost 350 trainers in the bin, along with the caption: “Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again.”

And Austin wasn’t the only person offended by Kanye’s explicit lyrics, as Taylor’s close friend Gigi Hadid, 20, was quick to distance herself from the rapper over his misogynistic lyrics.

The supermodel, who attended the fashion show at Madison Square Garden, took to her Twitter account yesterday evening and wrote: “My attendance somewhere does not mean I agree with everything being said in the music playing there. My friends know of my loyalty (sic).”

Jaime King also stood by Taylor, who is Godmother to her baby son Leo, as she declared: ‘I’m so sad right now & disappointed right now. I stand by my sister. Always.”

Following the infamous MTV VMAs incident Taylor and Kanye did not speak for a long time, but six years later, the ‘Bad Blood’ hitmaker revealed she and Kanye had buried the hatchet and were on “good terms”.
