Kanye West dismisses companies cutting connections with him and maintains that he cannot be canceled; nevertheless, he claims that if he is, it will just serve to highlight the harmful anti-Semitic stereotypes he has been spreading.
As he left his daughter North West’s basketball game on Friday night, the troubled billionaire staged a strangely timed news conference in which he paused to answer questions from the onlookers and paparazzi.
Ye addressed the subject of Balenciaga firing him right away, claiming that since they weren’t paying him anything, it didn’t bother him. He even criticized the fashion house’s decision, calling it just PR, adding that he believes LeBron James, Maverick Carter, Balenciaga, and “Drink Champs” presenter N.O.R.E. are all guilty of trying to gain points.
He lamented the fact that “The Shop” episode they had co-produced with Maverick, LeBron’s producer, had been pulled. Recall that Maverick claimed they canceled it so Ye wouldn’t have a forum from which to deliver “hate speech.”
The most recent “Champs” episode, in which Kanye went on an anti-Semitic diatribe and claimed that Jews control Hollywood, was treated similarly by N.O.R.E.
The rapper and fashion designer has previously come under fire for promoting many of the same ideas that Hitler did… Kanye made a classic Nazi comment on Friday night.
Ye asserted that any opposition to him is solely the result of Jews. He said, “I want to talk about the Jewish comment. It’s actually proving the exact point that I made. So many actors been bullied behind the scenes.”
