In an interview on Wednesday with Page Six of the New York Post, rapper Kanye West made it very apparent that he has no qualms about the antisemitic words and social media posts he has made days recently.
Hey, if you accuse someone of engaging in unethical economic practices, it makes you an antisemite. During the premiere of a new documentary directed by conservative commentator Candace Owens, he made the following statement: “I am delighted to have crossed the boundary of that idea so that we can speak openly about things like getting canceled by a bank.”
West was referring to the fact that JP Morgan Chase, the bank that previously worked with him to support his garment business, terminated their relationship due to his comments.
Owens posted a screenshot of an email on Twitter, claiming that the correspondence came from J.P. Morgan Chase and informed West that he needed to find a new bank by November 21.
Owens shared his perspective by saying, “As I gather my thoughts about this, I want to say that I do not care what you think about Ye West, but I very much care what you think about this.” “As I gather my thoughts about this, I want to say that I do not care what you think about this.” “These are quite terrifying times to live in this country,” said the author.
West, who has now formally changed his name to “Ye,” caused an uproar on Monday after tweeting that he was going to “death con 3” on Jewish people. The comment has since been deleted, but it caused controversy. He then asked the question of his followers, “Who, in your opinion, was the first person to build the cancel culture?”
Following West’s comments, Owens supported him on her show, saying, “If you are an honest person, you did not think this tweet was antisemitic.”
The statements on social media were published shortly after West’s interview with Tucker Carlson of Fox News.
The interview that was shown omitted footage Vice got, in which West professed his belief in antisemitic conspiracy theories. Vice also obtained the footage.
“I’d prefer my kids knew Hanukkah than Kwanzaa. At least it would come with some financial engineering,” he told Carlson, alluding to the conspiracy theory that Jews control the global financial system. Kwanzaa is a celebration that honors the African-American civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Kanye West said that his online antisemitic posts did not mean he wanted “harm” to come to Jewish people, but he stood by his words and told Page Six that he was “happy to have crossed that line.”
