U.S. whistleblower Edward Snowden poked fun at the controversial artist and GOP presidential contender Jeb Bush.

Kanye West has had quite a week.

After debuting his new album “The Life of Pablo” on Thursday – and reigniting his feud with Taylor Swift in the process – he announced to the Twittersphere Monday that he’s $ 53 million in debt.

Now, it looks like the controversial artist has made yet another enemy for himself: Edward Snowden.

The rapper has not shied away from expressing his true feelings through his lyrics nor his Twitter feed.

The 38-year-old artist sent out a rather desperate tweet Sunday saying that he would not be selling the album for another week, much to the dismay of his fans, which opened the lane for an unexpected ambush from Snowden.

West’s desperation prompted the U.S. whistleblower to draw a funny parallel.

Snowden hit two birds with one stone in the cheeky tweet, referencing GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush’s recent plea to a New Hampshire audience to “please clap” after he finished speaking to complete silence.

Yeezy hasn’t hit back at the international fugitive just yet, but given his track record, it’s only a matter of time before he becomes embroiled in the next feud.
