Caitlyn Jenner recently opened up on her former son-in-law, Kanye West(now known as Ye). It comes after the controversial anti-Semitic interview with radio host Alex Jones. He has been at the centre of a wave of controversy lately, doubling down on his anti-Semitic statements – which saw Amy Schumer scathingly dub him a Nazi during her recent Saturday Night Live hosting gig. Ye has been grabbing the headlines for some controversial reasons recently.
This is largely due to him wearing a ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirt during his Yeezy fashion show. Not only that, he came under fire for his recent anti-Semitic remarks. He stated that he’ll go “Death Con 3 On Jewish People.” West was even accused of saying he loves Adolph Hitler.
Caitlyn Jenner talks about Kanye West
In an appearance on the Friday edition of the Fox News show, America’s Newsroom With Bill Hemmer & Dana Perino, Jenner spoke candidly about West, who was suspended from Twitter overnight for sharing more anti-Semitic messages. A clip from Jenner’s interview began to circulate Twitter via The Recount.
“I’ve known, obviously, Kanye for a long time. He’s always been very, very good to me. And I just wish him well. I just — I want Kanye to do well,” Jenner said.
“Have you talked to him?” Hemmer asked.
“Not in the last few months, especially all this stuff has come out. I have not talked to him, but, I just wish him the best,” she replied.
“You know, he’s — he’s got challenges and I just hope him the best. Yeah, he’s always been very good. He’s such — he’s a really nice guy when I’ve been around him my whole life — or for the last 10 years. I just wish him well, you know, I — honestly,” Jenner added.
“Yeah, a lot of people are disappointed and offended and hurt by it, but now he’s suspended on Twitter,” Perino said.
“And I get it. And saying — saying what’s — I don’t blame them for being offended for that. I’m offended by it. Okay. But Kanye is Kanye,” Jenner replied.
“Something has gone sideways,” Hemmer observed. “You know what that is?”
“No, I don’t. Family stuff. I have to be very careful,” Jenner replied. “‘Cause it hits home. It hits home.”
