JAY-Z has been called a user, a d**k, and a bully on Twitter after a documentary titled ‘Public Enemies: Jay-Z vs Kanye’ aired on Channel 4 last night.

Fans flocked to the social media site to bash the hip hop legend after he appeared to kick his pal and protegee Kanye West when he was down.

Back in November, Kim Kardashian’s husband ranted on stage that he was afraid of his old mentor and the Roc Nation boss was even ignoring him, and the documentary started off with footage from that fateful night, which was the first time their feud was dragged into the public arena.

‘Jay-Z, call me, bruh! You still ain’t call me! Jay-Z, call me! Jay-Z, I know you got killers, please don’t send them at my head. Just call me! Talk to me like a man!’ he said on stage.

The docu-film then featured previously unseen footage of the two rappers and a string of interviews with people who have been close to them.

It painted a picture of Kanye trying to appease Jay at every turn and the Roc Nation boss taking advantage of his talent and his eagerness to do well.

Kanye was Jay’s producer before he released his critically acclaimed album ‘The College Dropout,’ which propelled him to stardom.

After a string of best-selling records, he became as famous as his mentor but following his marriage to Kim, the pairs’ relationship crumbled.

And their fans found out about their troubled friendship when Kanye used his concert as an impromptu soapbox, calling out his friend and rival for apparently not visiting him after the jewel heist in which Kim was held at gunpoint.

‘Don’t call me after the robbery and say, ‘How you feelin’?’ You wanna know how I’m feeling? Come by the house… Bring the kids by the house, like we’re brothers,’ he raged.

Once, Kanye even took aim at Jay’s wife Beyoncé, saying on stage: ‘Beyoncé I was hurt, cause I heard you wouldn’t perform unless you won video of the year over me and over “hotline bling”

‘F*** winning, f**** looking cool. Get ready to have a field day press. Get ready – because the shows over.’

And after watching the documentary, some viewers were shocked by Jay’s seemingly cold attitude towards his troubled friend and they slammed the star. But others insisted Kanye wouldn’t be famous with Jay and his treatment of him was simply ‘business’.

Neither star has commented on the documentary since it aired and in the meantime, Kanye has been recovering from a nervous breakdown and is said to be making new music again for his next album.
