Kanye West accepts the Video Vanguard Award from Taylor Swift during the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards at Microsoft Theater on Aug. 30, 2015 in Los Angeles.

Joseph Kahn has taken sides in the simmering Kanye West-Taylor Swift feud and there are no prizes for guessing who he’s backing. 

Kahn, the director of some of Swift’s best-know music videos, has unleashed a torrent of scathing tweets directed at Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian after the reality TV star leaked video of the rapper discussing the lyrics to the controversial song "Famous" with Swift.

The filmmaker, who helmed the clips for "Bad Blood," "Wildest Dreams," "Blank Space" and others, has been on a Twitter rampage since Swift defended herself on Sunday with a strongly-worded message, which Kahn retweeted with his own addition, “I've worked with everybody. I don't need to work with anybody. Taylor is a rainbow in a swamp.” 

Kahn stayed in the flow throughout Monday with bunches of barbs, some with direct targets, others less obvious. “Please remember to be nice to everyone today. Unless they're a bitch. Then punch them in the dick,” he wrote in one.

“Ain't the first time the Kardashians supported the murder of an innocent blonde woman,” he wrote in another, the context of which will be familiar with anyone who followed the OJ Simpson trial.

His final word on the matter is also his meanest: “The irony of one of the most untalented women in the world attacking one of the most talented.”

Selena Gomez and Chloe Grace Moretz are among the celebs who've weighed in on this latest celeb beef. Neither is impressed. "Stop wasting your time on something so petulant and unimportant," Moretz' tweeted.
