Peppa Pig vs Kanye West: Internet divided after discovering Ye's beef with fictional pig
Kanye West is not new to feuds and brawls in the industry, in fact he owns a big list of beefs which are increasing by each passing day. West, who now goes by “Ye,” shared in a since-deleted Instagram post a screenshot of a Hip Hop By The Numbers tweet listing everyone Ye has had beef with over the years including the famous children’s cartoon character Peppa Pig. Crazy isn't it? What's more interesting is, West didn't deny the allegations and called the list just a half of the reality.
West shared the post on February 18, and the list includes a few obvious names like Taylor Swift, Nike, Kim Kardashian, Pete Davidson, and Jay-Z. What more amused the fans is the name " Peppa pig" which just a stupid comic character often loved by the kid. "Why would 'West' have Beef with a fictional character?" asked his fans and netizens who drew their attention over the post.

Peppa Pig is notoriously known for her bratty personality, often being rude and selfish to the show's other characters. Ye didn't necessarily deny names on the list, saying, "Come on guys...the list is twice as long." He continued to troll, adding at the end, "Wow. Being rich is fun!!!!" A social media user even searched Peppa Pig's height, insisting the unusually tall fictional pig can take on a bulky-booted Kanye West. He is currently in DONDA 2 mode, preparing for the album's listening party (or perhaps, three more listening parties like DONDA) on February 22 in Miami.
Kanye better watch out, not many people realize how tall Peppa Pig is and it’s terrifying pic.twitter.com/nuDJhwxy9d— Emily (@Pagemaster4Life) February 20, 2022

As soon as this crazy comparison broke out, immediate response started spreading through the social media. A BuzzFeed poll on whether people are “team peppa or team kanye '' shows the overwhelming majority of the near 3,000-person survey favoring Peppa. Here are some of the interesting tweets by the netizens.

Even though some of them joined hands with West many of them did supportted the cartoon star ' Peppa' . Here are some of the reactions.
Most important news of the day is Kanye beefing with Peppa Pig and it's not particularly close. That insufferable porky punk just made some powerful enemies.— Jeff B. is *BOX OFFICE POISON* (@EsotericCD) February 20, 2022
Peppa Pig slander is not allowed. She is a legend. https://t.co/z2Bvu6aocl— Daniel Gotera (@DTGoteraKHOU) February 20, 2022

While several people were befuddled by the rapper’s apparent beef with a cartoon, the pair actually have history. In September, Peppa trolled Ye after Peppa’s Adventures: The Album received a review from Pitchfork that was better than Ye’s Donda by 0.5 points. And supposedly that had triggered a beef between the them.
I’m absolutely on Peppa Pig’s side in this https://t.co/ouBToBp4oa— Emily Zanotti (@emzanotti) February 20, 2022
I’d understand if Kanye beefed on Caillou but Peppa Pig rocks.— Tom Arnold (@TomArnold) February 20, 2022
Child actors always have such a rough go at life…, I watched a “Where are they now?” clip about PP and was heartbroken by her fall from grace. pic.twitter.com/OFfbmRBk5x— Theo Lemasters 🎃 (@screenwritery) February 20, 2022
