Kanye West has commented on the picture shared earlier this week that caused a fallout with producer Deadmau5.

Kanye West and Deadmau5 got into a Twitter scuffle after Kanye posted a screenshot of a computer with a Pirate Bay browser tab that was bootlegging a copy of digital synthesizer plug-in Serum.

Speaking to an unknown individual with a camera while standing outside of LAX, West claimed that the computer in question was not his.

Answering a few questions, he replied "I took a picture of it in the studio and everyone was like, 'Don't put that up!' blah, blah, blah. I was like, let it go up."

West also called out the irony of the situation, stating that his latest album was illegally downloaded over one million times. "The reality is people in the music industry hypocritically download sounds," he responded.
