Kanye West rants about Beyonce before cutting concert short

Updated: 

Kanye West is feeling the harsh tongue of Twitter users after he apparently had a pop at Beyonce during one of his shows.

Just days after telling fans that he would have voted for Donald Trump, Kanye threw shade at the singer during a gig in California, one of the stops on his Saint Pablo tour.

Video footage captured by fans shows the rapper telling the audience that he heard Beyonce refused to perform at the MTV Video Music Awards unless she won Video of the Year over him.

He also urged her husband Jay Z to call him.

Concert-goers said on social media that Kanye then played only a few songs before ending the concert.

His words have not gone down well on Twitter, where fans are posting some rather disparaging - and hilarious - comments and memes under the hashtag "#KanyeIsOverParty".

Some fans are having even more fun with it by referring to Taylor Swift, who clashed with Kanye and his wife Kim Kardashian over Kanye's song Famous, and whether she approved the lyrics relating to her.

Ouch!

Kanye's rep has yet to respond to requests for comment.
