Kanye West’s explicit takedown of Wiz Khalifa on Twitter on Wednesday (Jan. 27) went deeply viral—and now we have some stats to show just how viral said tweets became.

According to Twitter, West’s tweets were seen a collective 400 million times, and yielded 6.5 million original tweets about the incident. To compare, Rihanna generated 705,000 tweets in the past 24 hours, during the height of ANTI-mania.

West roasted Khalifa after mistaking one of his tweets as a slight to his wife, Kim Kardashian-West. Kanye later deleted the Twitter tirade and focused on “positivity.” On the other hand, Khalifa started a “Fuck Kanye” chant in Argentina on Wednesday night.
