Disgraced rapper Kanye West’s fans on Reddit have turned against him by converting one of the largest fansites devoted to him into a Taylor Swift recognition and Holocaust awareness page.
The anti-Semitic rapper’s shocking comments, which expressed his admiration for Adolf Hitler in an interview with Alex Jones on Thursday morning, were met with immense shock and anger, prompting the move.
West’s fans on the r/Kanye Reddit page have now expressed their concern about the rapper’s comments and are beginning to appreciate Swift.
The leading post on the site stated in its caption, “This is now a Taylor Swift subreddit. We had a good run guys.”
The Taylor Swift fans subreddit now has more than 42,000 upvotes.
The Reddit page has since been inundated with messages of support for Swift, with some even admitting that their dislike for the singer was misguided during the couple’s long and contentious history.
West and Swift fans have continued to fight over the years.
The two singers’ feud began during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, when West interrupted Swift’s acceptance speech for Best Video by an Artist to declare his support for Beyoncé.
He then used the incident in 2016 for the song “Famous” from the rapper’s album The Life of Pablo.
The lyrics read: “I feel like me and Taylor could still have sex. Why? I made this b**** famous.”
Swift later denounced the lyrics at the 2016 Grammy Awards, and West and his ex-wife Kim Kardashian allegedly leaked a phone conversation with Swift in which she gave their approval for the line to be used in the song.
The clip was found to have been edited.
Swift hasn’t engaged with the rapper since then.
The changes to the Reddit page come hours after West, who was previously dropped by Adidas, GAP and Balenciaga after a series of anti-Semitic comments, repeatedly praised the Nazi leader on Infowars.
The comments were so extreme that even Jones, a right-wing conspiracy theorist who was ordered to pay more than $1 billion for falsely claiming the Sandy Hook school shooting was fake, openly contradicted West, saying, he doesn’t like nazis.

“Well, I also see good things in Hitler,” he said on the show.
Later in the show, when Jones told the rapper he had a “Hitler fetish” and that he didn’t like Nazis or Hitler, West replied, “I like Hitler.”
West has also been criticized by various other celebrities for his anti-Semitic comments.
On Thursday night, the rapper shared the image of the Nazi symbol over the Star of David, a symbol of Judaism, prompting him to be suspended again on Twitter.
