Kanye West has fired back at Deadmau5, who early Wednesday ripped West for tweeting a screenshot of his computer, which revealed tabs opened to file-sharing site the Pirate Bay and a YouTube ripper.

“# whose job is it to carry the head on the plane # hash tag # do you check the mickey mouse head or carry on # does it get hot?” West said, touching off a series of mocking tweets directed at the music producer.

“# I’m bored ### when you get married will your wife have a giant minnie mouse head? # This brightened up my day… thank you dead-mow-five,” he added.

Kanye’s screenshot was meant to show off that he was listening to Sufjan Stevens’ “Death With Dignity” on YouTube, but the tabs in the background indicated that he was downloading a torrent of music editing software Serum and using MediaDownloader to rip songs like Stevens’ off Google’s video site.

When Deadmau5 saw that, he called out West, tweeting, “What the fuck … Can’t afford serum? Dick.”

Sources close to the rapper claim he intentionally opened the browser tabs as a joke to troll haters, according to TMZ, but Kanye has yet to comment publicly on his alleged use of piracy sites.
