Kanye West has been trolled by a cartoon pig.
The American rapper and fashion mogul dropped his new album ‘Danda’ on August 29 after listening events at Chicago’s Soldier Field and Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium, to mixed reviews.
One such review in particular – a 6.0 rating given by music news and reviews website Pitchfork – caught the eye of a rival star and global icon in its own right: Peppa Pig.
It turns out that Peppa, a lovable cartoon pig watched by kids in 180 countries around the world, released his own album on July 30, called Peppa’s Adventures, which got a 6.5 from Pitchfork — a whole 0.5 higher then Donda.
In a somewhat odd move for the typically mild-mannered hog, Peppa took to Twitter and delivered Kanye a beatdown that was hotter than any roast pork.
In a now-deleted tweet, Peppa toasted Kanye via Twitter, mocking the rapper whose new album scored a lower rating than “Peppa’s Adventures” on website Pitchfork.
Peppa the Pig is a highly successful British cartoon that is broadcast in 180 countries around the world. The hero of the same name released her own album entitled Peppa’s Adventures on July 30
Kanye released his highly anticipated album Donda on August 29, nearly two years after his latest album, Jesus Is King, debuted in October 2019.
The tweet read: “Peppa didn’t have to throw listening parties at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium to get that .5,” referring to the aforementioned events attended by tens of thousands of fans and controversial artists Marilyn Manson and DaBaby.
Singer Marilyn Manson is currently facing several cases of sexual assault, while DaBaby has been criticized for making homophobic and misogynistic comments on stage.
Peppa’s brutality was short-lived – she quickly returned to her usual polite self and the tweet was removed from her account – but not before a legion of Twitter users – who may or may not be Peppa Pig fans – took a screenshot of the tweet and sent them viral.

However, this isn’t the first time Peppa Pig has made headlines in the music industry.
Peppa Pig’s first album, creatively titled ‘My First Album’, gained massive online fame in the summer of 2019, when internet users banded together to boost Peppa Pig’s songs on the popular music streaming service Spotify.
Initially, the joke was based on the assumption that Peppa Pig’s debut album would top the new music of pop star Iggy Azalea, who would release music on the same day as Peppa Pig’s musical debut.
But the joke went so far that Peppa’s “My First Album” received millions of downloads on Spotify, leading to a distortion in the “related artists” section for Peppa Pig’s page.
Instead of the music recommendations page from other kids’ TV shows or cartoons, the featured artist section featured a lineup of artists like Rina Sayawama, Kim Petras, and LOONA, all of whom have huge LGBTQ fandoms.
Donda is Kanye’s tenth studio album and bears the name of his late mother who died in 2007 from complications related to breast lift surgery.
The album was originally scheduled to be released on July 24, but has been delayed several times.
According to Kanye, Universal Music Group, released the album on Sunday without his permission: “UNIVERSAL PUT MY ALBUM OUT WITHOUT MY APPROVAL AND THE BLOCKED JAIL 2 FROM BEING ON THE ALBUM,” West wrote in capital letters on Instagram.
Kanye, meanwhile, has yet to respond to Peppa’s taunt.
The Peppa Pig social media account is operated by parent company Entertainment One. MailOnline contacted a member of the social media team, but no one was available to respond immediately.
