Since Kanye West created a Twitter account last July, the rapper has carried his antics over to the social networking site with little censorship. After all, critics and fans have come to expect ridiculous rants and senseless tweets from the ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’ creator and yesterday’s was no different.

West took to his Twitter account Wednesday night (Feb. 23) to express his sentiments on a very controversial topic: abortion. The Chi-town MC, known for the hit song ‘Gold Digger,’ off his second album, ‘Late Registration,’ also voiced his concerns over the same women he raps about terminating pregnancies purposely.

“an abortion can cost a ballin’ n—- up to 50gs maybe a 100. Gold diggin’ bitches be getting pregnant on purpose. #STRAPUP my n—-s! [sic]” he tweeted.

While the tweet surely raised eyebrows, it also caused rumors to circulate if West himself had been involved in the same scenario he was writing about. To quell inquiring minds, he immediatley shot down the talk. “It ain’t happen to me but I know people,” he wrote.

As a result of his bold statements, UK singer Lily Allen responded angrily to the rapper. “@kanyewest never has a tweet put me in such a bad mood. This is wrong on so many levels,” she tweeted to West.

Perhaps the topic struck a chord with Allen considering last November she suffered a miscarriage six months into her pregnancy. The ‘Smile’ singer announced in early August 2010 that she was three months pregnant. Allen, 25, had an earlier miscarriage in 2008.
