Children’s cartoon hero Peppa Pig has taken aim at Kanye West on Twitter following West’s recent ‘DONDA’ album release.
On Twitter, the official account for the children’s cartoon character tweeted a Pitchfork album review of West’s ‘DONDA’ Pitchfork score alongside Peppa’s own score for album ‘Peppa’s Adventures: The Album.’
The Peppa Pig account showed that Peppa’s album actually scored higher than West’s on Pitchfork – a 6.5 for Peppa compared to a 6.0 for West.
In a since deleted tweet, the Peppa account wrote: “Peppa didn’t need to host listening parties in Mercedes-Benz Stadium to get that .5.”

The rapper and producer’s 10th studio album, which arrived on Sunday (August 29) after multiple delays and three high-profile listening events, features the likes of JAY-Z, Travis Scott, The Weeknd, Lil Baby, Kid Cudi, Pusha T and more.
One name that didn’t feature is OutKast’s André 3000. However, during a recent interview with Germany’s Bild, Kanye played a snippet of a track featuring the enigmatic musician that might or might not have been recorded specifically for ‘DONDA’.
“I produce music in my thoughts, no matter where I am,” said Kanye, explaining that he’s always working on music. From there, the conversation led to him playing the unreleased record with 3000, of which a snippet has made its way online.
Reviewing ‘DONDA’ NME said: “While ‘DONDA’ certainly isn’t a rushed job, it could have benefitted from West spending a little less time on it and learning when to let things go. Nobody needs all 27 of these tracks, but dig deep into its contents and you’ll find enough gems to make his 10th album worth your time.”
