Kanye West launched into a fresh anti-Semitic rant on Monday, claiming a ‘Jewish underground media mafia’ is ruining his career.
In an interview with Chris Cuomo at his new home on News Nation, West complained a ‘mafia’ of Jewish media executives attacked his White Lives Matter stunt at the Paris Fashion Week and are always calling him a rapper instead of a billionaire.
‘When I wore that White Lives Matter t-shirt, the Jewish underground media mafia already started attacking me,’ Ye said from the back seat of a car.
‘They canceled my store, SoFi stadium shows,’ he claimed.
‘Right, they have the press saying on 78 outlets that when I was arguing with Pete Davidson and Trevor Noah, they called me an abuser for arguing with people about my ex-wife and my family and when I get to see my kids and when I don’t.
‘And they just immediately disrespect me, they keep this crazy narrative going.
‘They never call me a billionaire,’ he continued. ‘We never talk about even one right here, Hey, tycoon, billionaire, visionary, inventor. These are never used.’
He also claimed that the ‘Jewish people that I’m talking about’ have a certain ‘privilege’ and he is now ‘calling out the Jewish community as a whole.’

Disgraced CNN anchor Chris Cuomo tried to assure the rapper there is no secret group of wealthy Jews colluding to harm his career
Cuomo tried to assure the rapper there is no secret group of wealthy Jews colluding to harm his career, saying it is ‘either a figment of your imagination or a projection of your prejudice.
‘You may have had bad business dealings with people, OK,’ the disgraced CNN anchor said. ‘It’s about those people, it’s not about religion or faith.
‘And I know that you are intelligent and understand that when you target people because of their faith, other people may do the same,’ Cuomo told the 45-year-old rapper, adding that people ‘may be abused or killed because of what they believe and who they are. ‘We won’t tolerate that,’ Cuomo declared.
‘And I won’t tolerate it as a black person,’ Kanye interjected as he doubled down on the idea of a Jewish cabal, noting the large number of Hollywood executives who are Jewish.
‘That’s different than saying there’s a mafia and they act as Jews in some was as opposed to just being businessmen,’ Cuomo responded.
‘One plays to a prejudice, the other one just plays to people in an ugly business. So you may have your feelings about it, just don’t ascribe it to their faith.’
West has faced a slew of controversy since he was pictured wearing a White Live Matter shirt at a Paris Fashion Week event earlier this month
He later tweeted he would be ‘going death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE’ while bringing back his ‘White Lives Matter’ T-shirt
Kanye West claims Kim Kardashian’s sex confession with Pete Davidson was spurred on by ‘Jewish Zionists’
Kanye West was referring to a scene on The Kardashians where Kim, 42, spoke about how she slept with Pete, 28, in front of a fireplace in a tribute to her grandmother.
She said her grandmother had told her ‘you really live life’ if you have sex in front of a fireplace.
She added: ‘I know that’s probably creepy’.
Kanye told N.O.R.E and DJ EFN on Drink Champs: ‘It’s Jewish Zionists that’s about that life, that’s telling this Christian woman that has four black children to put that out as a message in the media.’
He continued: ‘So when I drive by and I see the Hulu ads and I see the JP [Morgan Chase] ads, I’m gonna let y’all know right now, the devil is a defeated foe – you can’t poison me.’
Kardashian filed from divorce from West in February 2021.
The former couple are parents to four children: North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm.
Kim and Pete were together from October last year to August.

Kanye’s remarks comes just one week after the singer was kicked off Twitter for declaring war against the Jewish people.
He wrote: ‘I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.
‘The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also. You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.’
Deafcon – also known as defense readiness condition – is an alert used by the US Armed Forces to indicate how quickly the military can be deployed during deadly emergencies and attacks.
Many Hollywood A-listers soon called out the rapper for his remarks, and he was kicked off Twitter for violating its terms and conditions.
But West has only doubled down on his anti-Semitic comments in the days since.
In an interview with former rapper Noreaga aka N.O.R.E and DJ EFN on their Revolt TV’s Drinks Champs podcast that ‘the Jewish media blocked me out.
‘This s**t lit, right? I’m lit right? I’m lit,’ the rapper said in the podcast, released on Sunday, after JP Morgan Chase ended its relationship with West
‘JP Morgan, I put $140 million in JP Morgan, and they treated me like s**t. So if JP Morgan Chase is treating me like that, how are they treating the rest of y’all?’
In other parts of the interview, West said that ‘Jewish people control the black voice,’ and sarcastically stated that the ‘Jewish media’ would cancel one of the hosts for saying: ‘F**k Black Lives Matter.’
And later in his Drinks Champs interview, West claimed — contrary to the coroner’s report — that fentanyl caused George Floyd’s death in 2020.
‘He said a prayer for eight minutes, they hit him with the fentanyl. If you look, the guy’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that.’
Bizarrely, West goes on to say that Floyd’s death made him think of his ‘friend’ Virgil Abloh, the fashion designer who passed away in November 2021 following a short battle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare, aggressive form of cancer.
He was 41 years old. Meanwhile, on Wednesday, it was announced that West’s interview on The Shop would not air.
The show’s co-host, Maverick Carter ,said in a statement that the it was pulled was because West ‘used to reiterate more hate speech and extremely dangerous stereotypes.’ Carter’s usual co-host, LeBron James, was not present for the taping.

Now, companies are ending their relationship with West.
Last week, JP Morgan Chase ended its relationship with West, giving him until November 21 to remove his funds from their bank. The bank has not gone into details about the termination.
Adidas also announced earlier this month that it was ‘reviewing’ its partnership with Kanye after he was pictured showcasing his White Lives Matter shirts at a Paris Fashion Week show.
He was pictured standing beside Candace Owens, wearing inverse colors of the same shirt, and writing on Instagram that ‘they do’ when he faced backlash.
Kanye then continued to wear variations of the shirt, including at his daughter North’s, 9, basketball game.
In the aftermath, the German sporting goods maker released a statement saying they were reviewing their business dealings with the outspoken musician following his very public criticism of the company and their CEO.
Kanye had claimed the company was stealing his ideas.
‘After repeated efforts to privately resolve the situation, we have taken the decision to place the partnership under review. We will continue to co-manage the current product during this period,’ the company said.
‘Adidas has always been about creativity, innovation and supporting athletes and artists to achieve their vision. The adidas Yeezy partnership is one of the most successful collaborations in our industry’s history,’ Adidas said.
‘We also recognize that all successful partnerships are rooted in mutual respect and shared values.’

Natalyn Archibong, who introduced a proclamation honoring Ye last year is now trying to distance herself from him
Meanwhile, the former Atlanta councilwoman who spearheaded the city’s Kanye West Day last year is now trying to distance herself from him.
Natalyn Archibong introduced the proclamation honoring Ye, who was born in Atlanta, with his own day on June 21, 2021 as he launched his Donda tour.
She is now saying it was a one-time thing and cannot be repeated or erased, noting the city decided to commemorate Kanye for starting the tour in Atlanta, where he was born and acknowledging that his mother, Donda West, attended Morris Brown College, a historically black college in Atlanta.
She told TMZ the ‘July 2021 proclamation did not envision that in 2022, the artist formerly known as Kanye West would boldly make such ugly and hurtful statements.’
West, pictured in Beverly Hills on Sunday, is now going into business with Candace Owens’ CEO husband George Farmer as the rapper enters into a deal to buy social platform Parler
But Kanye is refusing to back down, instead announcing on Monday he plans to buy the ‘free speech platform’ Parler after being kicked off Twitter for his anti-Semitic posts.
Parler CEO George Farmer later confirmed the deal on Fox Business, welcoming West to the ‘fight for free speech.’
He claimed the rapper was a ‘victim’ of cancelation, but held back on actually defending the controversial tweet, instead saying it’s all ‘up for conversation.’
Farmer also said that West’s post – which got the rapper suspended from Twitter – was ‘worded very badly,’ but pointed out that West admitted he made a mistake.
The acquisition of Parler would give West control of a social media platform and a new outlet for his opinions with no gatekeeper. He said Monday it would ensure that conservative opinions can be ‘freely expressed.’
The Nashville-based company, which has raised about $56 million to date, said it expects the deal to close during the fourth quarter of 2022. It was not disclosed how much West would be paying for the deal.
