Taylor Swift and Kanye West are on the outs again. The rapper debuted his entire album The Life of Pablo on Thursday, including the song "Famous," which features the lyric: "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous."

Swift's rep has released a statement, obtained byEntertainment Weekly, in which the singer makes it clear that she does not support the song's "misogynistic message." "Kanye did not call for approval, but to ask Taylor to release his single 'Famous' on her Twitter account," the statement reads. "She declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message. Taylor was never made aware of the actual lyric, 'I made that bitch famous.'"

Kanye West tweets Bill Cosby is innocent

Though Swift has yet to respond on social media, her brother made his feelings very clear when he posted an Instagram video of himself throwing out Yeezy sneakers.

In a Twitter rant on Friday morning, West insisted he meant it as a compliment when he called Swift a bitch and that the singer came up with the lyric herself.
