    On Friday, Kanye West escalated his feud with Drake with a slew of tweets about him and their beef.

    If you want the full backstory, you can read that here.

    This all happened the same night that Ariana Grande was dropping her new single, "imagine," so she tweeted this:

    Kanye got wind of Ariana's message and tweeted this, saying, "I know Ariana said this to be cool and didn’t mean no harm, but I don’t like even slightest level of slight commentary from someone I know loves and respects me."

    I know Ariana said this to be cool and didn’t mean no harm but I don’t like even slightest level of slight commentary from someone I know loves and respects me

    He then followed up with these tweets:

    People will no longer take mental health for a joke

    Drake verbally attacked Cudi when he was in the hospital and went at me after TMZ because I decided to release albums in June Is snowballed and he refused to meet with me but texted my mother in law and did sneak disses on peoples records that I consider family

    In one of the many follow-up tweets, he said, "@ArianaGrande you know I got love for you, but until you're ready to really make sure everyone's ok, don't use me or this moment to promote a song."

    All of this foolishness weighed on my mental health so @ArianaGrande you know I got love for you but until you’re ready to really make sure everyone’s ok don’t use me or this moment to promote a song

    On Saturday morning, Ariana responded, saying she doesn't "need to use anyone to promote anything" and also apologized if her joke was insensitive.

    @kanyewest with all due respect, i don't need to use anyone to promote anything. period. i was making a comment ab what men were doing at the time vs. women. it was a joke which i understand now was probably insensitive. i apologize if i was in any way triggering and hope u feel well today.

    She also replied to a fan who told her to retract her apology, saying she cares about Kanye's mental health:

    @leighsgucci @kanyewest for potentially triggering him? nah regardless of how i feel about a situation, i can also care about their mental health.

    Kanye West has yet to respond directly to Ariana.
