Kanye West continues to piss off just about everybody in his quest for self-destruction an album promotion, this time when his forever-bronzed, real-life Bratz-doll wife, Kim Kardashian West, inserted herself into his catastrophic drama.

Since The Root reported on that dog’s mess of a beef involving West, his G.O.O.D. Music artist Pusha T and Drake on Saturday, West has managed to trash his own name even more, as if that were even possible.

Rapper and songwriter Che “Rhymefest” Smith, who is supposedly running West’s nonprofit, Donda’s House, named for Ye’s late mother, Donda West, hopped into the Drake-Pusha-Ye fray by tweeting that West is neglecting his mother’s namesake organization.

Rhymefest tongue-in-cheekily wrote that when West pays Drake his $100,000 invoice, he should put some money toward Donda’s House because Kanye has allegedly let the place falter, saying, “Fuck the youth of Chicago” for good measure.

Ye’s wife took a break from cultural appropriation and got online to defend her husband on Twitter, starting off by saying that Rhymefest was a liar and something dumb about fake Yeezys:

And this final poke:

To which Rhymefest responded by reading KKW all of her news, including the fact that she’d never even been to Donda’s House (an actual home from which the organization operates):

Twitter users then responded to all of this by telling Kardashian West to have several seats:

Next, Donda’s House decided to part ways with West, putting up a statement on Twitter that it’s changing the name of the organization because of Kardashian West’s “social media quotes, as well as the expressed interest of her family running the organization” (emphasis mine—was that a read?):

The end of this story (for now) is that Kanye West has announced a new nonprofit for the youths of Chicago that is going to be called “Donda Social,” wherein the rapper is going to give money to impoverished Chicagoans with the help of Chi-town A-listers such as Common, Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa, and his former manager and best bud Don C. It will be run by G.O.O.D. Music exec Malik Yusef.

I’m just tired. Drop the album already, Ye. And it better be 17 times better than Pusha’s, because if it isn’t, no Family Feud appearances or Kardashian entrées into whiteness will save your black ass.

Also, drop Mama Kris as your manager. Though she can get you little hits on TMZ, she is certainly going to ruin what bit of a career you have left. You actually have real talent; don’t squander it.

Listen to me now, Ye; believe me later on.
