Kanye West posts controversial tweets about abortion, infuriates Lily Allen.

Kanye West is taking heat from critics over tweets he posted on Wednesday about abortion.

Lily Allen was infuriated by West's tweet.

The rapper is the latest celeb to make controversial comments about abortion, taking a shot at the women who have them, and throwing in the 'N word,' to boot.

"An abortion can cost a ballin' n--ga up to 50gs maybe a 100. Gold diggin' b-----s be getting pregnant on purpose. #STRAPUP my n--gas!" West tweeted on Wednesday.

The 33-year-old singer later clarified, "It ain't happen to me but I know people."

His comments sent the blogosphere into a tizzy and infuriated British pop singer Lily Allen, who recently miscarried her second baby.

After retweeting West's remarks, Allen wrote, "Never has a tweet put me in such a bad mood. This is wrong on so many levels."

Perhaps the topic struck a chord with Allen considering last November she suffered a miscarriage six months into her pregnancy. The 'Smile' singer announced in early August 2010 that she was three months pregnant. Allen, 25, had an earlier miscarriage in 2008.

And West's tweets aren't his only personal expression that's causing controversy.

The video for his song "All of the Lights" has been pulled from YouTube over concerns that it may cause people with photosensitive epilepsy to have seizures.

"We are really pleased it has been taken down," Epilepsy Action wrote in a statement on its website. "We're not quite sure yet whether it is YouTube or Kanye West's representatives who have made this decision, or if it is a permanent move. For now we are delighted that our fears have been listened to and people with photosensitive epilepsy are no longer at risk."
