Kanye West Said Even More Insane Shit During His Tucker Carlson Interview, And His Episode Of “The Shop” Won’t Air Due To Hate Speech
Last week, Kanye West did an interview with Tucker Carlson on Fox News where he doubled down on the White Lives Matter messiness and randomly criticized Lizzo’s body. Yesterday, Motherboard obtained unaired footage of the interview. Yep, some of what Yeezy said was too much for Fox News. Too much for Fox News. Let that sink in. In the newly released clips, 45-year-old Kanye continues his recent trend of making bigoted statements about Jewish people and claims “fake children” were planted in his house to manipulate his own children. Hoo boy. In other “Kanye did an interview and it was the opposite of sane” news, the HBO talk show, The Shop: Uninterrupted, will not air the episode they recently shot with Kanye. The reason will shock you. Actually, no it won’t. It was cuz he used hate speech.
Kanye filmed his episode of The Shop on Monday. Executive producer/co-host Lebron James wasn’t on set that day (wise), but his co-host and producing partner, Maverick Carter, was. Yesterday, Maverick released a statement to the Hollywood Reporter, explaining that Kanye’s episode will not see the light of day. He says that Ye was actually booked weeks ago, long before his White Lives Matter controversy and anti-Semitic Twitter statements about going “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.” The day before filming (Sunday, just one day after the anti-Semitic tweets), Maverick spoke to Kanye and believed he would be on his best behavior. Alas, he was not. Maverick said he used the platform to “reiterate more hate speech.” Now, Maverick doesn’t specify what kind of “hate speech”, but it doesn’t take Detective Pikachu to figure out it was anti-Semitism:
“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. Unfortunately, he used The Shop to reiterate more hate speech and extremely dangerous stereotypes.”
The statement continues, “We have made the decision not to air this episode or any of Kanye’s remarks. 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. 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.”
Then there are the Fox News clips that were edited out of the Fox interview. Yes, there are anti-Semitism and bizarre claims about fake kids, but Fox also nixed the part where Kanye confirms he’s been vaccinated against COVID. Because Tucker is an anti-vaxxer. Anti-vaxxers, anti-semites, anti-sanity. Here’s what Yeezy said about Jewish people, via Vice:
In his interview with Carlson, Ye said that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, a “known eugenics,” as he put it, created Planned Parenthood with the KKK “to control the Jew population.”
“When I say Jew, I mean the 12 lost tribes of Judah, the blood of Christ, who the people known as the race Black really are,” Ye added. “This is who our people are. The blood of Christ. This, as a Christian, is my belief.”
Vice explains that, yes, Margaret Sanger was a racist eugenicist, a stance Planned Parenthood has since denounced. Kanye’s also into the belief that Black people are the “real” Jewish race, a claim that’s often used to promote anti-Semitism. Later in the interview, Kanye uses a weird metaphor when talking about Black people judging one another. He says “judging each other on how white we talk” would be like “a Jewish person judging another Jewish person on how good they danced or something.” Then he pauses, and says, “that’s probably a bad example and people are going to get mad at that shit.” A few moments later, he says, “I probably want to edit that out.”
Then, Kanye complains that his kids are going to a school that celebrates Kwanzaa. He says he prefers they learned about Hanukkah, because “at least it will come with some financial engineering.” Here’s all the anti-semitic stuff:
Then there are the “fake children” claims. Kanye alleges professional actors were placed in his house to “sexualize my kids,” and refers to the “so-called son” of an associate. There’s way more, including Kanye’s claim that he will be “the first Latino president,” more “Kardashians kidnapped my kids” stuff, and God telling Kanye to build “fully kinetic energy communities.” Vice has the whole rundown if diving headfirst into crazy is your thing.
You know, I’m actually surprised Tucker Carlson, and Fox News cut out the part of the interview where Kanye confirmed he was vaxxed. Why didn’t Fox News blame Kanye’s mental health issues on the vaccine? Symptoms of Moderna include: the government taking away your rights, mind control, and spewing horrible shit like Yeezy!
