There's a line in Kanye West's new song "Famous" that has Taylor Swift's friends and family a bit upset. 

Kanye West Combines His Two Loves With 'Life of Pablo' Album & Yeezy Season 3 Debut at MSG

West debuted the track with his whole T.O.L.P. album at the Yeezy Season 3 fashion show at New York's Madison Square Garden Thursday (Feb. 11) and on it he raps, "I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex / Why? I made that bitch famous." 

It seems Austin Swift didn't appreciate the mention of his older sister and took to throwing away his Yeezy sneakers, posting a video to Instagram. He included the caption, "Getting a head start on some spring cleaning. Here we go again."

Swift's close friend Gigi Hadid -- who was at the Yeezy Season 3 show -- also commented online, explaining, "My attendance somewhere does not mean I agree with everything being said in the music playing there. My friends know of my loyalty."

Needless to say Swift's fans are plenty peeved as well. After hearing the line, Swift fans en masse took to social media to question West's claims of Swift's fame, as well as that other bit.
