Fans have grown accustomed to Kanye “Ye” West’s habit of ranting on social media, and when Twitter users saw a series of digitally altered Instagram posts that mimicked his style of voicing grievances and telling the world too much, left many of them assumed they were the real deal.
The fake message that drew the most attention read: “Kim often has diarrhea. So much more than a normal person should have.” It was created by Twitter satirist Octopus/Caveman, who later told Hogan Torah, “I honestly wouldn’t have done it if I knew it was going to explode and be a big deal The spoof caught the attention of Ye himself, who shared a screenshot of the post on Instagram (via the Daily Mail) and denied taking it. He also shared with his followers that he feels the same way about a certain sitcom as he does about Kim Kardashian’s ex Pete Davidson. “I didn’t actually write the note that said ‘friends weren’t funny either,’ but I wish I had, I’d like to know who thought of that,” he wrote. Another Twitter user claimed credit for this fake 2020 tweet published in The Joe Rogan Experience.
Ye’s recent, very real “Friends” brawl inspired former actress Courteney Cox to show off her comedic skills on Instagram.
Kanye West and Courteney Cox have hung out together before
Kanye “Ye” West, a man who has his whole head covered in feathers, might not find it amusing to do the same with a fake turkey. But maybe he just smiled a little after watching Courteney Cox’s reaction to his Friends shade. In an Instagram video, Cox rocks out to Ye’s song “Heartless” while scrolling through the rapper’s Instagram floors. Reaching his sentence about her sitcom, she angrily turns off the music and storms off.
The fake “‘Friends’ wasn’t funny either” tweet making such a fuss was apparently inspired by a 2020 Instagram post shared by Cox’s former co-star Jennifer Aniston. Revealing that she voted for Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential election, she wrote, “PS – It’s not funny voting for Kanye. I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible.” Outlets such as Mirror and Access referenced the photoshopped tweet in stories about Aniston’s confrontation with Yes’s candidacy for the presidency.
You may not be a fan of Cox’s sitcom, but there’s Instagram evidence that he had a huge grin on his face as he and Kim Kardashian joined a small group of celebs, including Cox, Isla Fisher and Sacha Baron Cohen, to catch a screening of Cohen’s comedy The Brothers Grimsby in 2016. Kimye was also photographed sitting next to Cox at an LA Lakers game in 2020, but sadly, some “friends” don’t last forever.
