Kanye West has a history of stirring up controversy. The ‘Donda’ rapper received a lot of criticism for his anti-Semitic remarks. Now, he’s finally addressed the massive backlash he’s received over his recent controversial statements.

On Wednesday night, Page Six caught a hold of West as he left the screening of Owen’s newest documentary. The rapper spoke with the outlet about all of the companies that have ditched him as a result of his most recent social media outbursts, including Adidas and JPMorgan Chase. Before proclaiming himself as “the richest black man in American history,” Ye told the outlet’s photographers,

“Hey, if you call somebody out for bad business, that means you’re being anti-Semitic. I feel happy to have crossed the line of that idea so we can speak openly about things like getting canceled by a bank,”

West, who is 45, continued talking about JPMorgan Chase specifically, but was interrupted when a truck drove by. He then decided to “speak at a different time.” Meanwhile, just hours ago, Owens herself revealed that JPMorgan Chase had given West until November to find a new bank institution to hold his multibillion-dollar company Yeezy.

“I was told there was no official reason given, but they sent this letter as well to confirm that he has until late November to find another place for the Yeezy empire to bank,

JPMorgan Chase dropping West comes after he made several anti-Semitic comments over the weekend. Though the bank hasn’t given an official reason, fans believe Kanye West’s latest comments forced the bank to end their agreement with the rapper.

Last week, Adidas also announced that their partnership with West was “under review” following the rapper’s “White Lives Matter” shirt scandal. The rapper is certainly in a tough spot right now. Keep checking on Thirsty for more updates.
