AceShowbiz - Safaree Samuels and Tank had a playful back-and-forth online. After the singer/songwriter dissed the former for his criticism against Kanye West's fashion choice, the "Love & Hip Hop: New York" cast member called the R&B star "suck."
It all started after Safaree offered his two cents about Ye. "I've always been a Kanye fan but I really hate how he's been dressing these last 2 years. He use to be inspiration with clothes and jewelry. Now this guy just wears hoodies and black gloves and it bothers me," he wrote on Twitter on Thursday, December 30.
The tweet was then reshared by The Shade Room on Instagram. Catching wind of the post, Tank commented, "Says the guy with no clothing line, no clothing endorsements, and absolutely no fashion sense [sideways laughing emojis]."
Tank's remark didn't go unnoticed by Safaree, who replied, "Hey I use to be a fan of you... now you suck [upset emojis]." The "Maybe I Deserve" crooner later wrote back, "You're still fan.. stop it..lol." The estranged husband of Erica Mena agreed, saying, "your right," along with a couple of crying laughing emojis.
Tank was not the only one who pushed back on Safaree's statement. Many Twitter users jumped to Ye's defense, with one writing, "Safaree doesn't have the range to comment on what Kanye does…not enough brain cells…"
Another explained, "Clearly Kanye is having body image problems and he is dressing for it, he used to be a lot smaller and that when he wore these fashion size clothes sorry he can't be magga like you Safaree #bullybizness #maggaman #littlemanproblems." A third chimed in, "You're the last one to speak.. you wore a Jean vests."
While Safaree is not a fan of Ye's current style, the latter's estranged wife Kim Kardashian praised him for it. "Thank you to Kanye for really introducing me to the fashion world," the reality TV star gushed during her speech at the 2021 People's Choice Awards after receiving this year's Fashion Icon Award.
