Rap and fashion icon Ye West resumed his disturbing campaign of anti-semitism Monday night during an interview from his car with NewsNation host Chris Cuomo.

The segment came as West, who has legally changed his first name from Kanye, has been engulfed in controversy for weeks over numerous anti-Semitic remarks that he has made that have gotten him suspended on social media platforms. When Cuomo broached the issue, West responded that he didn’t like the term “anti-Semitic.”

“It’s been a term that’s allowed people specifically in my industry, to get away, to get away with murder sometimes, literally,” he claimed without evidence. “And get away with robbing and doing bad people, people always say, ‘I got screwed on a deal.’ Would that could come as a surprise to you if I said, ‘Hey, a music exec screwed someone on our deal?’ Does that sound kind of like normal commonplace to you?”

“You’re saying it’s anti-Semitic, but I don’t believe in that term,” West claimed. “One thing is, black people also Jew, I classify as Jew also. So I actually can’t be anti-Semite. So the term is actually, it’s not factual.”

West rambled about a number of seemingly unrelated topics, including his claim that a woman could have “one bad man in her life” that makes her dislike men, which he then transitioned into saying he’s been “screwed” “over 10 times” by people in the last two years.

West also repeatedly snapped at Cuomo anytime that Cuomo would try to take control of the interview, often appearing visibly agitated on camera.

“Everyone wants to shoot the, shoot the messenger and you, look at how your appointments going to start, you have to understand, but the thing is, the Jewish people that I’m talking about, don’t have to understand,” West said. “And that is that privilege that I’m not going to allow. When I wore the ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirt, the Jewish underground media mafia already started attacking me. They canceled my four SoFi stadium shows, right? They had the press, the same people, the seven, eight 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 that crazy narrative going.”

“They never call me a billionaire,” West complained. “We never talked about even on this one right here. Hey, tycoon, billionaire, a visionary, inventor. These are never used. If you go to like, New York Times, or Wall Street Journal, whatever. They always say, ‘the rapper, the rapper,’ it was hard enough for us to get ‘fashion designer’.”

After letting West rant, Cuomo interjected, “So look, there is no Jewish media cabal mafia.”

“That is a figment of either your imagination or a projection of a prejudice,” he continued. “You may have had bad business dealings with people. It’s about those people. It’s not about their 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 so the same. They’ve been targeted before, they’ve been abused, and killed because of what they believe and who they are. So we don’t want to tolerate that. And you’re playing into that right now whether you know that or not.”

West responded by claiming he wouldn’t “tolerate it as a black person” as he then claimed that the majority of executives in Hollywood “are Jewish.”

“You realize when I wore a red hat that my life was threatened by my Jewish managers, by my Jewish lawyer, by my Jewish accountant, [inaudible]–” West claimed.

“Your lawyer and your accountant threatened your life?” Cuomo asked.

“No,” West responded, “not specifically the accountant, but there were many people who threatened my life. Also, my family was torn apart off of my political opinion, because of my ex wife’s attachment to the Clinton administration. I mean, they were getting my ex-wife to push the vaccination. I didn’t realize how attached they were to the left’s agenda.”

When Cuomo told him that society would not accept or tolerate his anti-Semitism, West responded, “I don’t have to understand or accept, because they’re not willing to understand or accept.”

“And that’s the reason why I’m not backing down. People have had their careers destroyed,” West continued. “That’s why they keep on saying, ‘Oh well yeah, Ye, is dangerous, because he will keep talking.'”

“Jewish people own the black voice,” West claimed, later adding, “We’re not going to be owned by the Jewish media anymore.”

When Cuomo later tried to regain control of the conversation, West responded, “Bro, bro, [inaudible] la, la, la, la la, la.”

West then suggested that there is a conspiracy to have Jewish people in every celebrity’s contracts so that Jewish people could have control over them.

After West continued his anti-Semitic tirade, Cuomo pointedly told him, “That is inherently anti-semitic.”
