Kanye West recently interviewed with Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes, vocalizing antisemitic comments that echo those which costed him his partnership with Adidas, billionaire-status, and much more. The conversation was also moderated by far-right personation Nick Fuentes, a Holocaust denier and white supremacist (as labeled by the Anti-Defamation League).
According to Billboard, the 45-minute interview—titled “Saving Ye”—was posted on an alt-right website (Censored.TV). It shares a debate revolving around the “hate speech aimed at the Jewish community.”
The interview begins with the right-wing extremist saying his purpose of the conducting it is to “prevent Ye West from becoming an antisemite or a Nazi,” which people are speculating Kanye of being.
Some of the antisemitic, shocking comments Billboard and Rolling Stone report on include:
- “Jewish people — forgive Hitler today… Let it go. Let it go. Stop trying to force it on other people.”
- “Jewish people can’t tell me who I can love and who I can’t love,”
- “Jews should work for Christians. I’ll hire a Jewish person in a second if I knew they weren’t a spy and I could look through their phone and follow through their house and have a camera all in their living room.”
Kanye's most recent post on Instagram is political, as some claim these appearances to be.
