Update: We have since found out that the below story is not true and the screenshots were fabricated. If y'all on the internet could stop lying, that'd be gr8 😂

Kanye West has lost 9 million Twitter followers in one day.

And it seems it's all to do with his supportive tweets about President Donald Trump.

One fan noticed and tweeted screenshots of Kanye's followers: "Kanye losing 9 million followers because of the Trump tweet," the fan wrote alongside the images.

Kanye called Trump his "brother" and said that they both have "dragon energy".

He tweeted: "You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does. That's what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought."

But it seems Kim wasn't too pleased with the tweet, and immediately contacted Kanye, telling him to set the record straight.

Trump was pleased with the tweet though. He shared it with his own followers and wrote: "Thank you Kanye, very cool!"
