Kanye West receiving backlash for antisemitic language

The impulsiveness and egotism of West’s recent behaviour seem consistent with the symptoms of a manic episode.

As if things could not get any worse for Kanye West, the artist is now in tabloids after allegedly praising Hitler and the Nazis“ in a previous, edited interview with a celebrity gossip site.

What started off as another Twitter rant, somehow managed to find its way onto TV as well.

Last week, at his fashion show in Paris, the billionaire rapper sported a “White Lives Matter” T-shirt while delivering a nearly two-hour sermon on the divine provenance of his new collection.

Diddy, among countless others, took exception to the message, and West responded by accusing the artist formerly known as Puff Daddy of being controlled by Jewish puppet masters.

West then tweeted that, though he was “a bit sleepy,” when he wakes up the next morning, he was “going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” who he said try to “blackball anyone who opposes their agenda.”

During his interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson, West alleged that planned parenthood was created to “control the Jew population”, adding; “When I say ‘Jew,’ I mean … who the people known as the race Black really are.”

He went on to add that “fake children, placed into my house to sexualize my kids.”

All ideas and sentiments Fox chose not to air to the public, but somehow the clip was leaked. 

LeBron James found himself in a similar scenario to that of Fox news. His YouTube talk show Uninterrupted The Shop would not air an interview with West after he used “more hate speech and extremely dangerous stereotypes” during the taping.

The show, which is produced by LeBron and his business manager Maverick Carter, issued a statement saying they would not air episodes that feature West due to the direction he took with the conversation.

“Hate speech should never have an audience,” said Mr. Carter.

Many attribute this rise in his sudden sporadic behaviour to his well-established history of mental illness, specifically bipolar, over the years.
