Kanye Storms Off Podcast After Facing Pushback On Antisemitic Claims

Kanye Storms Off Podcast After Facing Pushback On Antisemitic Claims

Kanye West stormed off the set of Tim Pool‘s “Timcast” podcast recording on Monday (November 28) after he was challenged over his antisemitic views.

West appeared on the podcast along with Milo Yiannopoulos and Nick Fuentes.

After Pool asked Ye about his recent dinner with former President Donald Trump, the musician shifted the conversation in a different direction.

“I just got to go to the heart of this antisemite claim,” he said and launched into an incoherent rant, accusing Gap, adidas, Vogue, former presidents Barack Obama and Trump, and even his personal trainer of participating in a Jewish-led conspiracy to end his career.

As Pool tried to get back to the topic, Ye threatened to walk off, saying, “I feel like it’s a setup. I’m going to walk the F off the show if I’m having to talk about, ‘You can’t say Jewish people did it,’ when every sensible person knows – that Jon Stewart knows – what happened to me, and they took it to far.”

Shortly thereafter, he compared himself to Martin Luther King Jr. and said, “As I’m getting hosed down every day by the press and financially, I’m just standing there. When I found out they were trying to put me in jail, it was like a dog was biting my arm and I almost shed a tear. Almost. But I still walked in stride through it.”

As Pool responded saying, “I think they’ve been extremely unfair to you,” Ye asked, “Who is ‘they,’ though? We can’t say who ‘they’ is, can we.”

“The press,” Pool clarified. “I don’t use the word as the way I guess you guys use- I’m talking about-“

After Fuentes stepped in, saying “It is them though, isn’t it?” Pool responded “No.” Ye then snapped, “What do you mean it’s not?” and walked off.
