Not only did he lose major cred by being unaware of a slang term for weed, he got completely owned by his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, 32, who took him down with just one tweet.
Amber Rose, on the other hand, is having rather a good week.

She came out on top in the Kanye fracas, probably gaining a couple of million Twitter followers in the process; she wrote an op ed in Time about not caring what other people (such as Kanye West) think of her; and she went on the Allegedly pop culture podcast to give her perspective on the incident.
“I would never talk about kids in an argument,” she told hosts Matthew Cole Weiss and Theo Von of West, referring to Kanye’s claim that he “owns” her son.
“It just shows the type of person he is. Even him saying stuff about my son, I still didn’t say anything about his kids. I’m not going to. This is ridiculous. They’re innocent babies. You don’t ever, ever talk about a baby, ever.”
West’s long and bewildering procession of 140 character proclamations has now been deleted, but it’s not forgotten (especially since we screen-grabbed a load of them).
A curious thing came out of the whole debacle: it became apparent that Kanye West is still preoccupied with Amber Rose, who was his girlfriend for two years between 2008 and 2010.
According to her, they broke up because West was cheating on her with Kim Kardashian, who in turn was cheating on her partner Reggie Bush.
When he was made aware that Wiz Khalifa’s Twitter reference to “KK” wasn’t about Kim Kardashian but rather his favourite Khalifa Kush strain of marijuana, West decided to move onto his favourite subject: Amber Rose.
To Rose’s ex-husband Khalifa, West referred to her as a “stripper” and applied the lyrics of his hit song Gold Digger to her.
He’s previously called her a “whore” and said he had to shower “30 times” after being with her to be clean enough for Kim Kardashian.
That’s his wife Kim Kardashian, who’s famous for a sex tape.
Rose was inspired to throw a SlutWalk after that particular unsavoury comment.
