Though the account sadly deleted the shady tweet (a screenshot was captured, bless), they did maintain one unimaginable response to a fan’s response. When one consumer wrote, “Stan the Queen @peppapig,” the lovable piggy responded merely with a crown emoji. Slow claps throughout.
For his half, West didn’t reply to the hilarious shade, however provided that he’s obtained 4 younger children at dwelling, we wouldn’t be shocked if his crew feels equally about each albums. Better luck subsequent time, Kanye.
