Here's A Fact Check On Kanye's Claims That He Caused A Drop In Wiz Khalifa's Twitter Followers
We're not sure where Kanye West got the idea that he cost Wiz Khalifa two million followers, but these Twitter statistics say otherwise.
If you somehow missed the epic war of words that went down between Kanye West and Wiz Khalifa (okay, it was mostly Kanye), then you've got plenty catching up to do. After Wiz Khalifa publicly voiced his discontent for Kanye's sudden album title change from SWISH to Waves, Ye kicked off on a wild rant of his own.
In the myriad of now-deleted (read: reckless) tweets, the self-proclaimed OG tried to son Wiz on his "wack" music, his child and, ironically, his choice in women. To cap it off, Ye is convinced he not only ethered Khalifa's career, but caused two million Twitter followers to abandon him. According to Twitter, this is simply not the case.
Man it’s a sad a day… Wiz lost 2 million followers since I tweeted I didn’t mean to either him like that.

In all actuality, it wound up being a win-win situation for all parties involved. According to Twitter statistics, Wiz didn't lose anything. Behind Kanye scoring 172K new followers in the last 24 hours, the Blacc Hollywood rapper actually gained over 61K new followers. Amber Rose even snagged 45.6K of her own after her hilariously explicit clapback.
Oh, the Internet. Meanwhile, earlier today:
