The more Kanye West makes controversial comments, the more his credibility is shot beyond repair. The latest comments are so disgusting, it’s hard to be angry with this guy.
According to the Daily Beast, Higher Learning podcaster and former TMZ staffer Van Lathan called West for some old comments he allegedly made during an interview in 2018. Van Lathan wasn’t surprised by the artist’s recent antisemitic outburst.
In a since-deleted portion of Kanye’s hideous TMZ rant, Van Lathan claims that West’s professed his love for Hitler and the Nazis, and referred to slavery as a “choice.” On an episode of his podcast, referring to West’s recent comments that got him banned from Twitter and Instagram.
“I’ve already heard him say that stuff before. I mean, I was taken aback because that type of anti-Semitic talk is disgusting. But as far as him, I knew that that was in him because when came to TMZ, he said that stuff and they took it out of the interview.”
“If you look at what I said at TMZ, it goes from me saying like, ‘Hey Kanye, there’s real-life, real-world implication to everything that you just said there.’ What I say after that—if I can remember, it’s been a long time—was, ’12 million people actually died because of Nazism and Hitler and all of that stuff,’ and then I move on to talk about what he said about slavery,”
“The reason they took it out is because it wouldn’t have made sense unless they kept in Kanye saying he loved Hitler and the Nazis, which he said when he was at TMZ. He said something like, ‘I love Hitler, I love Nazis.’ Something to that effect.”
Once again there is no bottom from Kanye. Sadly the man won’t change at all. We’ll have to see what kind of headline Ye snags next, but this isn’t a great look.
