It is no longer anything new that Kanye West is located at the center of various controversies.
This time, his situation has worsened if possible, since he has made such sensitive statements that his Twitter account has even been suspended. The rapper, also known as Ye, has stated during a commercial break for the program “Inowars”, by the American conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, that he likes the figure of Adolf Hitler , which joins his previous and numerous accusations in against him for antisemitism. “I love the Jews, but I also love the Nazis,” he said in the interview.
During the meeting, Jones asked West about the controversial actions of the American artist, who lost his contract with Adidas for comments that the company called “unacceptable, hateful and dangerous.” In this sense, the presenter has assured that Ye “is neither Hitler nor a Nazi”, after which the rapper has taken the floor. “From this guy (Hitler) who invented the highways and invented the same microphone that I use as a musician, you can’t say out loud that he ever did anything good and I’m sick of it. I have tired of the classifications ”, he has expressed. ” There are many things I like about Hitler. Many things ”, Ye continued during his speech in“ Infowars ”.
Subsequently, he explained that “every human being has something of value”, “especially Hitler”. Elsewhere in the interview, the host is heard arguing that “most Jews are great people,” though he agrees that there is a “Jewish mafia.” ” I don’t like the word ‘evil’ next to (that of) the Nazis ,” the rapper has also said. “I love the Jews, but I also love the Nazis,” he added, after which Jones laughed, according to Billboard magazine.
Since his Infowars website was founded in 1999, Jones, who is a radio presenter, has had a large following. Among the conspiracy theories he has promoted is that the 2001 attacks in New York and Washington were organized by the government.Just clarifying that his account is being suspended for incitement to violence, not an unflattering pic of me being hosed by Ari.
The suspension of the rapper’s Twitter account occurred after he posted an image of a Star of David with a Nazi swastika inside, hours after his statements on the aforementioned program. It has been, in fact, Elon Musk himself who has explained how the artist has violated the rules of the social network for inciting violence: “I have done the best I could. Despite that, Kanye West has once again violated our rule against inciting violence. The account will be suspended ”, he stated.
The social network Parler has announced its decision to cancel the sale of the platform to Kanye West after the rapper’s statements about Adolf Hitler. The social network, which is used as the preferred alternative by conservatives, including some ultra-rightists in the United States, has announced its decision to abandon the purchase deal it reached with the now known as Ye, CNN has reported.
In a statement, Parler’s parent Parlement Technologies said it “has mutually agreed with Ye to terminate the intended sale of Parler.” “This decision was made in the interest of both parties in mid-November. Parler will continue to look for future growth opportunities and platform evolution for our vibrant community,” he added.
The singer’s comments have prompted major brands long associated with him across his music, fashion line and businesses to cut ties, a move Ye says has cost him hundreds of millions of dollars.
Twitter has suspended his account for “inciting violence”, shortly after West confessed that “I love Jews, but I love Nazis too. There are many things I like about Hitler.”
