Kanye West reposted a TikTok video on his Instagram earlier Friday in which the rapper Azealia Banks harshly compared Gigi Hadid to her younger sister Bella Hadid.
The 31-year-old musician called the mother of one a ‘cabbage patch’ while Bella was ‘the doll.’

The Heartless singer shared the short clip onto her Instagram story, with a previous caption on the video that read, ‘I’m sorry Gigi but this is the one of the funniest videos I’ve ever seen.’
Azealia, known for hit songs such as 212, could be heard stating directly to the camera, ‘Gigi Hadid, you are not the doll. Bella Hadid is the doll.’
The singer continued by adding, ‘You’re the cabbage patch. She’s the Barbie. You’re the cabbage patch.’
At the end, she referenced to the Brady brunch characters. ‘She’s Marcia and you’re Jan.’
Kanye himself didn’t add any further caption to the reposted TikTok video, but earlier Friday via his Instagram, he also called the model a ‘Karen’ and typed, ‘YOU WERE BORN WITH A SILVER SPOON IN YOUR MOUTH YOURE A ZOMBIE.’

The rapper and the supermodel have been caught up in a war of words this week after she leapt to the defence of Vogue contributing editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, who West had been accused of ‘bullying’ online.
In the latest exchange West lashed out as he shared a screenshot of a comment made by Gigi on Instagram in which she claimed the rapper did not treat ‘V’ like a friend.
While no further context was provided it appeared she was referencing late designer Virgil Abloh after West had been criticised for referencing the designer in his rants.

‘You were born with a silver spoon in your mouth. You’re a zombie. You speak up here but didn’t speak up when my child was kidnapped on her birthday. [sic]’
Ye and Gigi’s ongoing feud was sparked shortly after the rapper’s Paris Fashion Show on Monday in which models strutted down the runway wearing White Lives Matter merchandise.
Harsh: Towards the end of the TikTok clip, the singer also stated that Gigi was ‘Marcia’ from the Brady Brunch, while Bella was ‘Jan’
The following day, the fashion designer lashed out at Vogue contributing editor, Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, after she called out his behavior as ‘indefensible’ and that the merchandise was both ‘dangerous and violent.’
Ye also shared a photo of the Vogue writer, writing that she was ‘not a fashion person.’
After sharing a text message exchange on his Instagram page in which a person named Mowalola was asking him to ‘not insult’ the Vogue editor, Gigi jumped to the comments.
The model, who personally has worked with Gabriella in the past, wrote, ‘You wish u had a percentage of her intellect. You have no idea haha.’ She concluded by calling him both ‘a bully’ and ‘a joke.’
MailOnline has contacted Hadid’s representatives for comment.

‘I WONDER WHAT GIGI AND VENUS’S PERESPECTIVES WERE WHEN I DIDN’T KNOW WHERE MY CHILD WAS ON HER BIRTHDAY,’ he wrote, referencing to drama revolving around daughter, Chicago, and his claims that Kim refused to let him see their child on her fourth birthday.
He then referenced that himself and Gabriella had a discussion in the past regarding the birthday situation. ‘Gabby told me that she disagreed with that.’
Gigi then prompted to leap back into the comments to correct the rapper. ‘It’s Gabriella.’
Khloe also added herself into the feud, defending her sister. ‘Ye, I love you. I don’t want to do this on social media but YOU keep bringing it here. You are the father of my nieces and nephews and I’m trying to be respectful but please STOP tearing Kimberly down and using our family when you want to deflect.’

Kardashian – who co-parents North, nine, Saint, six, Chicago, four, and Psalm, three with the rapper – has denied this claim.
West later shared an image of text that read: ‘Nobody say nothing to me in private that they wouldn’t say in public. I’m not yall’s personal hard drive [sic]’, captioning the post: ‘Jesus is king.’

On Monday, Ye held his recent collection during Paris Fashion Week, which debuted White Lives Matter merchandise.
Models in the runway show donned clothing with the message written on some of the pieces in the collection, referencing to the Black Lives Matter movement which was founded back in 2013, following the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin.
One of the guests, Jaden Smith, son of Will Smith, shared a tweet expressing that he had walked out of the show.
Candace Owens, a well-known right-wing commentator, shared a photo of herself posing next to Kanye as they both wore long-sleeved shirts with the logo printed on the back.

Karefa-Johnson landed at the center of headlines these last few days after comments she made expressing concern about Kanye’s White Lives Matter fashion show garnered his attention.
West caused an uproar with Monday’s show in Paris, which saw models striding down the catwalk in WLM shirts – seen as a repudiation of the Black Lives Matter movement.
His spokesman Jason Lee quit in protest at the provocative show, writing on Instagram that West was ‘gaslighting black people and empowering white supremacy.’
‘Very humble and thankful to Ye for the opportunity to work with him but that part of our relationship has come to an end,’ he later wrote on his Instagram Story.

Free thinker: One of the only famous friends coming to the defense of Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband is Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, who called the musician a ‘free thinker’ and says his message was ‘misconstrued’
Meanwhile, one of the only famous friends coming to the defense of Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband at the moment is Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs, who called the musician a ‘free thinker’ and says his message was ‘misconstrued.’
Diddy, 52, said ‘My boy is a super, super, super free thinker’ in an interview on ‘The Breakfast Club on Wednesday.
‘And a lot of times, what he means is, like, misconstrued, you know what I’m saying?’ the record executive added.
When host Charlamagne, 44, interjected to say, ‘You gotta stop making excuses for him’ he replied, ‘No, no, I’m not making excuses, I’m just sayin’ if he did it, that’s the way he thinks.’
The rapper also stated that people ‘don’t have to condemn Kanye or cancel him,’ but that he understands that the shirts are ‘very tone-deaf.’
‘I understand white lives do matter, but it’s not that,’ Diddy went on. ‘[Black Lives Matter] was our slogan. That wasn’t our slogan to go share with nobody else… Because right now, we’re the ones that are dying, that are incarcerated, that are left in poverty.’
‘You have to be unapologetically black and love your people and love your tribe first,’ he added.
Diddy also revealed that he had previously planned to release his own T-shirt to support West, but now ‘[needs] a couple of days to get over’ the ‘White Lives Matter’ design.

It is not the first time that Ye has stoked controversy surrounding race, after saying in 2018 that he thought 400 years of slavery ‘was a choice.’
Kanye has aligned himself with right-wing figures such as Owens, as well as former President Donald Trump, regularly sporting a Make America Great Again baseball hat in public.
During a May 2018 interview regarding his support of Trump, West said: ‘Racism isn’t the deal-breaker for me. If that was the case, I wouldn’t live in America.’
It was an eventful Wednesday for Kanye, who earlier in the day accused the Kardashian family of ‘basically kidnapping’ his daughter Chicago on her birthday, as he continued to make claims that ex-wife Kim Kardashian has prevented him from seeing their children.
The accusation came as Khloe Kardashian made a public plea for the rapper to stop ‘tearing down’ her sister, after Kanye dredged up his family dispute amid the ongoing controversy surrounding his ‘White Lives Matter’ T-shirt.
