Kanye West appears to be blasting everyone in his vision, but Howard Stern disagrees.
Stern is the latest celebrity to criticize West as the rapper retracts damaging and derogatory statements directed at several people.
Stern called the “Jesus Is King” rapper the new “Hitler” on Wednesday’s SiriusXM radio show and said he almost doesn’t want to give energy to his current character.
The host said:
“I don’t know much about Kanye West. I’m not big into the rap scene, but he is… I’m really tired of people excusing his behavior by saying, ‘Well, he’s just mentally ill.'”
Stern discussed West’s appearance on Chris Cuomo’s show, saying that his self-defense claims and mental illness are s-t. He showed a clip from that interview in which Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband complained about not being called a billionaire or tycoon because of the “Jewish underground media mafia.”
West’s “depressing” statements prompted Stern to explain how the rapper went from being fun and crazy to Hitler-like.
This month, West’s Instagram account was suspended due to Stern’s comments about his anti-Semitic posts and interviews.
In recent weeks, West has repeatedly demonstrated his hatred for Jews.
Stern’s outrage came after West appeared on Piers Morgan’s “Piers Morgan Uncensored” show the same day.
When questioned by a British journalist about his racist remarks that insulted Jewish people, West repeatedly defended himself and stated that he was not sorry for what he said.
He also stated that he would fight “fire with fire.”
Something appeared to have changed when he apologized later in the interview.
“I will say I’m sorry for the people that I hurt. I feel like I cause hurt and confusion, and I’m sorry for the families of the people that had nothing to do with the trauma that I had been through and that I use my platform where you say, ‘Hurt people hurt people,’ and I was hurt.”
In related news, West was sued in a $250 million lawsuit by George Floyd’s daughter for his comments about the African-American man, claiming he died of fentanyl and not because police knelt on his neck.
The bereaved family was allegedly subjected to “harassment, misappropriation, defamation, and infliction of emotional distress” due to the statement.
