Jack Antonoff: Kanye West “Needs His Diaper Changed So Badly”

Jack Antonoff has never been afraid to voice his distaste for Kanye West — or anyone else, for that matter. But now, West is back in his sights, with the Bleachers singer commenting that the rapper “just needs his diaper changed so badly” in a new interview.

The comments came in a new story by the Los Angeles Times, in which Antonoff mused on times he’s come to the defense of his frequent collaborator, Taylor Swift. “I’m a little bitch sometimes,” he said. “But you come after my friend Taylor, you’re toast to me.”

Speaking about Ye, Antonoff made the aforementioned allusion that the rapper is a dirty-diaper baby. Then, when asked if he ever has hesitations about dissing a “well-known musician he might someday want to work with,” he rejected the idea that collaborating with West would be much fun these days.

“It’s been a long time since I would’ve taken Kanye’s call,” he said. “I’m so incredibly bored when someone doesn’t have the sauce anymore, so they go elsewhere to shock. It’s just a remarkable waste of space.”

West, of course, has made numerous controversial antisemitic comments in recent years, and has famously been an adversary of sorts to Taylor Swift. In 2022, Antonoff called him a “little bitch.”
