Kanye West Storms Out Of Interview After Being Questioned About Antisemitic Remarks + Rapper Compares Himself To MLK: No One’s Gonna Denounce The Fact That They Tried To Lock Me Up
Kanye West dismissed a podcast interview after a host tried to debate his negative views on Jewish people.
Kanye “Ye” West sat down with white nationalist Nick Fuentes and radical right-wing extremist Milo Yiannopoulos on the “Timcast IRL” podcast, which is hosted by Tim Pool. During the episode, Kanye West went on another rant about Jewish people. He said:
“Jewish people say ‘it’s the holocaust, this happened and you can’t say anything about it.’ We can’t take their pain away. No one’s gonna denounce the fact that they tried to lock me up!”
The 45-year-old added:
“Everytime I’m just holding stride and it’s like I thought I was more Malcolm X but I find out I’m more MLK because as I’m getting hosed down everyday by the press and financially I’m just standing there and when I found out that they tried to put me in jail it was like a dog was biting my arm. I almost shed a tear, almost, but I still walked in stride through it.”
Tim Pool continued the conversation, stating that “they” have been “extremely unfair” to the Yeezy founder following the backlash he received because of his ongoing antisemitic rants.
As previously reported, West lost his billionaire status due to terminated partnerships with Adidas, Balenciaga, and more. The companies cut ties with the entertainer because of his public “hate speech.” West responded:
“Who is ‘they’ though? We can’t say who ‘they’ is, can we?”
As the host tried to elaborate and explain that when he said “they” he was referring to “the press,” West seemingly became turned off by the conversation and abruptly left the room.
