At a time when he continues to lose important sponsorship and commercial connections, because of the statements he makes, Kanye West again gives a controversial interview, in which he compares abortion to the Holocaust.
In a nearly three-hour interview conducted by scientist Lex Fridman, the American, accused of making anti-Semitic remarks, said: “A Jewish friend of mine said to me: ‘go visit the Holocaust Museum’, and my response was, ‘let’s go. let’s visit our holocaust museum first: Planned Parenthood,’” he said, referring to the nonprofit organization that provides reproductive health care.
When the podcast host, who was born in the former Soviet Union and is Jewish, announced that several members of his family had died at the hands of the Nazis, Kanye West played down the dimensions of the Holocaust, saying: “And more than 20 million died at the hands of abortion.”
In the interview, which was partially transcribed by the “Billboard” website, Kanye West further claimed that “50% of black deaths are due to abortion. Not for cops with knees [no nosso pescoço], not gang violence or heart attacks, but abortion. The most dangerous place for black people in America is their mother’s belly,” he said, pointing to a lack of knowledge of human anatomy.
For Kanye West, the music and media industries are trying to carry out a “genocide of black people”, backed by a “Jewish record company”. The musician believes that there was also a “Jewish conspiracy” that led to his detention for mental health reasons and argues that he cannot be considered anti-Semitic because he is Jewish himself.
The artist and businessman still regrets losing his family and support from the black community, but guarantees that he will continue to express his opinion, because he feels God is on his side.
“People say I’m crazy. I lost my family and my reputation. I just want my family back. But I don’t want my family to say what the left wants them to say, or what China wants them to say. I want to be American and protect my children and my wife and raise my children as a Christian and convert my wife to Christianity,” he explained.
Within weeks, the musician was forced to withdraw his assets from his bank, o JPMorganis the subject of a process by George Floyd’s familyand brands like Adidas, Balenciaga e “Vogue” magazine announced breaking up with Kanye. Also the agency that represents him, a CAA, announced that they would be terminating any connection with the artist. It is also known that will lose his billionaire status.
