Westside Gunn fired back at his haters on Twitter, Sunday.

Westside Gunn has responded to the backlash he's been receiving on Twitter for flipping an image of Nazi-branded cocaine into an album cover for his Hitler Wears Hermes series. Gunn posted the image on Twitter, over the weekend. In response, some fans argued that he took things too far.

"Y’all cosign his nazi fetish but demonize Ye for saying love everyone. I can’t stand y’all n***s," one user posted. Another wrote: "i understand the aesthetic and series name and whatnot but you might want to tone it down a little." Gunn replied in a post on Sunday: “WSG hate is the best shit on the internet. Bc while I’m getting hated on Im either in my mansion, a luxury vehicle, island with my entire family, or a 5star something in the best clothes money can buy, smelling great & worth MILLIONS or even places u couldn’t dare go bc I’m a [goat emoji].”

He continued in another tweet: “I spit on bums your beneath me pew pew pew pew (that’s me spitting) pew pew pew pew (that’s me sitting more).” Over the years, Gunn has released ten installments in his Hitler Wears Hermes series. He said that the latest entry would be the last. The Nazi-branded cocaine stems from a New York Post story on a drug bust in Peru.

Despite also claiming to be retiring from hip-hop, Gunn is gearing up for the release of a sequel to his acclaimed 2020 album, Pray For Paris. The new project, project, & Then U Pray For Me, is due for release next month.
