    Kim Kardashian's Facing Backlash Over Her Comments About A Charity Kanye Was Once Responsible For

    Kanye, smh. Give Kim her phone back.

    Hello everyone. Take a seat, because we're about to go on a ride to understand the current drama unfolding between Kim Kardashian, Rhymefest, and the Chicago charity Donda's House.

    E!

    So it all started with Pusha T, a member of Kanye West's label GOOD Music. His latest album Daytona, which was produced by Kanye, featured the Drake diss track, "Infrared".

    In true 6 God fashion, Drake clapped back almost instantly. He dropped his own diss track titled "Duppy Freestyle" accompanied with an $100,000 invoice for the subsequent "promotional assistance and career reviving" he provided with his song.

    On the track Drake also took the opportunity to diss Kanye as well, in order to highlight the hypocrisy in Pusha's dig against him.

    This brings us to the current drama. The invoice prompted Che "Rhymefest" Smith, co-founder of Donda's House, a charity named after Kanye's late mother, to ask for funding help for the forgotten non-for-profit.

    Kim Kardashian didn't like Rhymefest publicly trying to drag her husband's name through the dirt, so she sent out a series of tweets voicing her opinions on the issue.

    People didn't like that Kim Kardashian attacked Rhymefest personally, when the issue was with the charity. They especially detested her using a "lol, who are you again?" tactic to do it.

    After Kim's Twitter rant, Rhymefest responded with a letter where he respectfully addressed the points she put forward.

    Twitter: @RHYMEFEST

    Basically, he explained that he didn't care whether her followers knew of him as members of the community do, and that's what is important. Rhymefest also explained that he was directly mentored by Donda West, Kim hasn’t even spoken to anyone working for the charity, and has had nothing to do with the organisation itself. He also highlighted that Kanye often receives "positive press" from the work of Donda's House, despite doing nothing to support the organisation.

    And then, after everything was said, Donda's House issued a statement explaining that they would no longer operate under the name as a result of Kim's outburst.

    Twitter: @DondasHouse

    The charity explained that "the social media quotes from Kim Kardashian West, as well as the expressed interest of her family running the organisation, has brought us to this decision".

    A second statement was issued on the Donda's House website and goes further to explain that severing ties also comes as a result of Kanye's social media use over the last few months. The statement read: "We ask that as you boycott and protest Kanye West, that you not forget that we are a non-profit organisation that, like other non-profits, needs donations, corporate support, and volunteers. We do not want your rejection of Kanye West, to be a rejection of Dr Donda West and the thousands of lives she impacted including her own son."

    Following the decision of Donda's House, Kim took to Twitter, once again, to explain why she reacted the way she did. All the while, Kanye has remained silent on everything.

    So there we have it: two diss tracks, a $100,000 invoice, a cry for help, a couple of Twitter rants, a whole lot of dragging, a charity name change, and a MIA Kanye.

    E!

    Happy Monday, I guess?
