Kanye West ban – latest: Rapper now accused of praising Hitler as LeBron James cancels him for anti-Semitism

Fox News hosts forced to make on-air U-turn over support for Kanye West

A former TMZ staffer said he was unsurprised by Kanye West’s troubling anti-Semitic language recently, claiming the rapper made comments praising “Hilter and the Nazis” in a previous, edited interview at the celebrity gossip site.

Van Lathan, the host of the Higher Learning podcast, said West sat down with TMZ for an interview and claimed the rapper said he “loved Hitler and the Nazis.” According to Mr. Lathan, that part was cut out of the interview.

Earlier it was announced that LeBron James’s YouTube talk show Uninterrupted The Shop would not show an interview with West after he used “more hate speech and extremely dangerous stereotypes” during a taping.

The Shop, which is produced by James and his business manager, Maverick Carter, said in a statement first issued to Andscape on Tuesday that they would be canning the episode taped with Ye this week and would not be disclosing the contents of what was specifically said, but apologized to the crew and guests for “believing Kanye wanted a different conversation”.

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

Leaked video footage from earlier on Tuesday also showed that West reportedly made a string of anti-Semitic comments that were edited out of his interview with Tucker Carlson.

The rapper, who remains banned from Twitter and Instagram for a string of separate anti-Semitic posts, also made bizarre statements that “fake children” had been put in his home to manipulate his own children. The controversial fashion mogul also talked about having visions of “kinetic energy” that he is sent by God.

ICYMI: Mehdi Hasan took Fox News to task after unaired versions of the network’s two-part interview with Kanye West were unearthed and showed the rapper making a string of anti-Semitic comments that were edited out of his interview with host Tucker Carlson.

“Here’s a thought: neither the political party nor the TV network that excused or ignored Trump’s antisemitism, Greene’s antisemitism, Gosar’s antisemitism, and now Kanye West’s antisemitism should probably never be taken seriously again on the issue of antisemitism,” tweeted the MSNBC host.

While she didn’t mention West by name, her post comes after the rapper went to Twitter to claim that he would go “death con three on JEWISH PEOPLE”.

“To allow any form of antisemitism to slip by, as desensitized as the world has become, it would be a disservice to my friends, the families I have grown up with, the people I love and work with, myself, and even the Palestinian cause as a whole,” she wrote.

Trevor Noah includes West’s comments in his top contenders for week’s most ‘amazing racism’

ICYMI: Trevor Noah’s late-night roast of Kanye West included a moment where he said the famous rapper’s comments had earned him a top-three spot in his ranking for the week’s most “amazing racism”.

“I don’t even know where to start with this shit,” The Daily Show host began in his Tuesday night segment on the rapper, who remains locked out of his Twitter and Instagram accounts for separate antisemitic posts. “I mean promoting anti-Semitism to your 50 million followers?”

Zeroing-in on what he acknowledged was the least important point of West’s rants was the typo where the rapper wrote that he would be going “death con 3” on Jewish people.

“I know this is not the point but that’s not how you say it. I know it’s not the main issue. I know that,” Noah added. “But it’s DEF CON 3. Alright, not death con 3. Death con sounds like a trade show where they unveil all the latest coffins or something.”

Kanye West episode on Lebron James’ show ‘The Shop’ canned after Ye uses ‘more hate speech’

ICYMI: Kanye West continued to air “more hate speech and extremely dangerous stereotypes” during a taping of a new episode of LeBron James’s YouTube talk show Uninterrupted The Shop.

The Shop, which is produced by the championship-winning NBA star and his business manager, Maverick Carter, said in a statement first issued to Andscape on Tuesday that they would be pulling an episode taped with Ye and would not be disclosing the contents of what was specifically said by the controversial figure.

“Yesterday we taped an episode of The Shop with Kanye West. Kanye was booked weeks ago and, after talking to Kanye directly the day before we taped, I believed he was capable of a respectful discussion and he was ready to address all his recent comments,” Mr. Carter said in the Tuesday statement, just days after the rapper was locked out of his Twitter and Instagram accounts for posting anti-Semitic comments. “Unfortunately, he used The Shop to reiterate more hate speech and extremely dangerous stereotypes.”

The statement from the executive producer added that the show would not be airing any of the specific comments made during the taping of the episode and that they took “full responsibility” for their error in judgment.

“While The Shop embraces thoughtful discourse and differing opinions, we have zero tolerance for hate speech of any kind and will never allow our channels to be used to promote hate,” said Mr. Carter. “I take full responsibility for believing Kanye wanted a different conversation and apologize to our guests and crew. Hate speech should never have an audience.”

According to AndscapeJames was not in attendance at the taping of West’s episode, which had been scheduled weeks before the recent controversies involving the rapper had even occurred.

CEO of American Jewish Committee calls Kanye comments ‘a clear and present danger’

The CEO of the American Jewish Committee has called Kanye West’s antisemitic comments “a clear and present danger to every Jewish person.”

Ted Deutch also called for Twitter, Instagram and other social media companies to keep the rapper off their platforms.

“Although some have tried, there is no rationale, no explaining away Kanye West’s rants on social media for anything else than what they are: vicious antisemitic statements that pose a clear and present danger to every Jewish person,” said Mr. Deutch.

“With 31 million followers on Twitter and 18 million more on Instagram, West is an influencer in the worst sense of the word. With his vile online comments, West effectively encouraged hatred against Jews at a time when anti-Semitism and other hate crimes have risen to alarming levels around the world. This cannot be condemned.

“West has acknowledged that he suffers from bipolar disorder, but mental illness is no excuse for anti-Semitism. Let’s hope he gets the help he desperately needs. Until then, Twitter, Instagram should follow their own guidelines prohibiting hate speech and keep West’s anti-Jewish hate off their channels.”
