Kanye West is under fire on social media after the message "BILL COSBY INNOCENT" was tweeted from his account on Tuesday.

West hadn't clarified his comment as of press time. It wasn't clear whether the tweet was the product of a hack.

But plenty of users have slammed him for it in the meantime.

Cosby, the embattled star of "The Cosby Show," has been accused of sexual assault by over 50 women in incidents that date back as far as the 1960s.

He's currently the subject of a court case to surrounding an alleged sex assault on Andrea Constand, a former staffer at Temple University's athletic department, in 2004.

West's tweet came as he prepares to release a new album Thursday.

It also followed a Twitter battle with his ex-girlfriend Amber Rose and her former husband, rapper Wiz Khalifa.

West had previously tweeted at Khalifa that he "wouldn't have a child if it wasn't for me." The tweet has since been deleted.

Khalifa and Rose have a child together named Sebastian.

Rose was disappointed that West had brought up her son on Twitter.

"It just shows the type of person he is," she told Allegedly podcast hosts Theo Von and Matthew Cole Weiss. "Even him saying stuff about my son, I still didn't say anything about his kids. I'm not going to. This is ridiculous. They're innocent babies. You don't ever, ever talk about a baby, ever."
