Kanye West has received a lot of attention lately. First, it was for wearing a White Lives Matter t-shirt during his Paris Fashion Week fashion show. Following that, he was barred from Twitter and Instagram for making anti-Semitic slurs. Now, Ye has continued his attacks on Jewish people by saying that ‘Jewish media’ blocked a recent interview.
West, who is 45, who is still under fire for his tweet last week in which he claimed to be going ‘def con 3’ on Jews, revealed his fresh remarks during an appearance on Revolt TV’s Drinks Champs podcast. Former rapper Noreaga alias N.O.R.E and DJ EFN host the show. West ranted in his Drinks Champs interview,
“‘Could you even really run this interview? Because Mav didn’t run my interview. You know what I’m saying? They blocked me out. The Jewish media blocked me out. This s**t lit, right? I’m lit right? I’m lit. JP Morgan, I put $140 million in JP Morgan, and they treated me like s**t. So if JP Morgan Chase is treating me like that, how are they treating the rest of y’all?”
In other sections of the interview, West said that “Jewish people control the black voice,” and sarcastically stated that the “Jewish media” would cancel one of the hosts for saying, “F**k Black Lives Matter.” This comes after JP Morgan Chase dissolved its partnership with West earlier this week, giving him until November 21 to withdraw his cash. The bank has not provided any information about the reason for termination.
Additionally, it was announced on Wednesday that West’s interview on The Shop will not air. Maverick Carter, the show’s co-host, said in a statement that it was pulled because West “used to rehash additional hate speech and incredibly dangerous stereotypes.” LeBron James, Carter’s normal co-host, was not present for the taping.
Later in his Drinks Champs interview, West also discussed George Floyd’s death at the hands of Officer Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis in 2020. Bizarrely, West goes on to say that Floyd’s death made him think of his ‘friend’ Virgil Abloh, the fashion designer who passed away in November 2021 following a short battle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare, aggressive form of cancer.
