Rapper Kayne West now known as 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. West’s recent interview on the podcast Drink Champs hosted by N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN included shocking controversial claims and took time to highlight Bad Bunny’s music industry success.
Kayne West bashes Howard Stern
MIT research scientist Lex Fridman hosted Ye for a two-and-half-hour podcast interview that, among many topics, saw Ye lash out at Howard Stern.
West asked what useful apology he could deliver to the radio personality “short of kissing [his] d*ck.” When Fridman pointed out this was clearly rhetorical, Ye continued: “That’s the whole point, Howard Stern. Nobody wants to kiss your d*ck, so shut the f*** up. And by the way, I’m antagonizing you, Howard Stern. I used to be a fan of you. … Now you’re just doing clickbait like everybody else. Now you’re just a sad old man, Howard.”
The conversation further saw a significant amount of pushback against Ye’s anti-Semitic remarks and his continued stereotyping of Jewish people. Fridman, a Russian-American of Ukrainian-Jewish decent, wrote when sharing the podcast episode, “Given my family history in the 20th century, this was difficult but important.” The self-described “AI researcher working on autonomous vehicles, human-robot interaction, and machine learning” added, “I believe in the power of tough, honest, empathetic conversation to increase the amount of love in the world.”
