A decade-old tweet from P!nk about Kanye West has resurfaced on social media as the rapper faces anti-Semitism accusations.
The 45-year-old rapper is at the center of grave controversy this week after a series of offensive posts deemed anti-Semitic earned him a suspension from both Instagram and Twitter.
The ‘Gold Digger’ rapper’s suspension also comes a week after he was slammed for showcasing White Lives Matter t-shirts at a Paris fashion show, which he used to criticize the Black Lives Matter movement as a “scam”.
Amid all of this chaos, a tweet posted by P!nk in 2009 (where she labeled the father-of-four the “biggest piece of s***” after he infamously interrupted Taylor Swift at the MTV Video Music Awards) has made the rounds on social media again.
Check out P!nk’s tweet below:
Kanye west is the biggest piece of shit on earth. Quote me.

The ‘Donda’ rapper walked on stage and took the microphone from then-19-year-old Swift, who had just won the award for the best music video, and declared that Beyoncé had deserved the win.
The notorious incident sparked outrage at the time, with his actions being widely condemned by various high-profile people, including then-US President Barack Obama who called the musician a “jack***”
Thirteen years after penning it, the ‘Just Give Me A Reason’ singer’s post has resurfaced, and Twitter users are discussing how relevant it is today.
Josh Gad, who is famous for voicing Olaf in the Frozen franchise, took to his Twitter page to write: “Thirteen years later, it’s aged like the finest of wines. Love you @Pink.”
Another user said that the ‘Lady Marmalade’ musician’s tweet has been “relevant for 13 years,” while a third user shared: “I love how this tweet keeps being true and true each passing year.”
A fourth user also quoted the tweet and said that P!nk was “ahead of her time” with her brutal message for the ‘Stronger’ musician.

It’s not the first time her tweet has been brought up since it was first written, as it tends to resurface every time West is involved in serious controversies.
However, this time it could be more personal, as P!nk is Jewish and posted about her heritage on Instagram in 2017, writing: “It’s incredible to watch neo-nazis march in 2017, while I, a Jewish woman, headline a show in Berlin where these tunnels were built by [Hitler], built curvy so he couldn’t be shot in the back.”
“I walked through this tunnel to get to the stage while people just like him marched in Charlottesville. My heart aches for the amount of hatred in this world,” she added.
Over the weekend, the Yeezy star was kicked out of his Twitter account after he tweeted: “I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.”
“The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because Black people are actually [Jews] also You guys have toyed with me and tried to blackball anyone whoever opposes your agenda,” West added.
The social media platform has since removed the tweet in question, with a message instead reading: “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules.”
