Kanye West Slams ‘Liberal Nazis,’ Claims Life Was Threatened Over MAGA Hat and Says ‘White Lives Matter’ Shirt Was Just ‘Funny’ To Him
Ye also stated that fat acceptance was intended to accelerate the “genocide” of the Black race in his interview with Tucker Carlson. “
Kanye West quadrupled down on his controversial “White Lives Matter” shirt during an appearance on Fox News commentator Tucker Carlson’s show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, on Thursday night (Oct. 6), while also roasting the “demonic” promotion of obesity by the media (via his “good Friend” Lizzo) tate he said was part of a plot intended to hasten the “genocide of the Black race.”
West, who now goes by Ye, saved some of his harshest comments for ex-wife Kim Kardashian, whom he slammed for posting with her rear out for a recent issue of Interview magazine. “Kim is a Christian, but she has people who want her to go to Interview magazine and put her ass out while she’s a 40-something-year-old multi-billionaire with four Black children and this is how fashion, how they want to present her,” he said of the cover, in which Kim posed with her rear exposed to the camera while wearing a jockstrap.
The rapper, who has released dozens of songs with NC-17-rated, provocative lyrics, added that he thinks Kardashian’s shapewear line, SKIMS, is too sexy. “I had a lot to do with the imagery in SKIMS. He said that he felt there was a lot of imagery which was sexualized and things that I wouldn’t like to see my wife or my daughters doing in the future to sell product. It reaches a higher level when it’s like, “OK, this is what my spouse is doing. This is what she does for our children. ‘”
At another point, West said he didn’t realize that when they were married Kardashian was “a cell phone [call]” away from the Clintons, who he claimed were part of an effort at “attempt[ed] manipulation” through Kim to push people to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
West aimed his strongest ire at the backlash to his outrage-machine-fueling decision to wear a long-sleeved shirt with “White Lives Matter” emblazoned on it during a surprise Paris Fashion Week show on Monday evening (Oct. 3). The shirts were worn by Ye and other models at the show, including Kanye, Candace Owens and conservative commentator Candace Owens.
Asked why as a Black man he wore the shirt with the message that the Southern Poverty Law Center has said is a “racist response to the civil rights movement Black Lives Matter” — as well as the name of a neo-Nazi group that is “growing into a movement as more and more white supremacists groups take up its slogans and tactics” — West said it was for Lolz.
“I do certain things out of a feeling. I channel the energy. It just feels right. It’s using a gut intuition, connection with God, and just brilliance,” Ye said. He compared the move to the hours of practice Tonya Harding, disgraced Olympic skater, puts in before performing a jump. Ye claimed that his father texted him after the Paris show, to let him know that his son loved the “White Lives Matter shirt.”
Kanye stated that his father is an educated ex Black Panther and sent me a text today. He said, “White lives matter hahahahaha.” “And I said that I thought the shirt was funny; I thought the idea to me wearing it was funny.” Kanye replied, “Just a Black man stating obvious .'”
Speaking of controversial gear, West claimed he felt his life was under threat when he wore one of twice-impeached former president Donald Trump’s signature “MAGA” hats during the 2020 election. “My so-called friends/handlers told me that if I said I liked Trump, my career would be over. Kanye said to Carlson that his life would end. The interview was in which Kanye went on a tangent regarding Jared Kushner’s brother Josh Kushner, an investor, about what he claimed was Josh’s larger stake in SKIMS than Ye.
“They said stuff like people are killed for wearing a headgear like that.” Unnamed forces opposed to Trump’s support threatened West’s life. They basically said that I would die for wearing the hat. Someone called me last night and said that anyone wearing a ‘white life matters’ shirt would be green-lit. They will beat me up if I don’t wear it. I’m like, “Okay, green me then.”
Ye also brought Lizzo into a conversation over claims that he body-shamed Gabriella Karefa Johnson this week in a back and forth about the “White Lives Matter” shirt in which he made untoward comments regarding her appearance. West sent some tweets mocking Karefa Johnson, who was present at Monday’s Yeezy Show. He told Carlson that the idea of him bullying a “body goals Black woman” was patently absurd and that promoting fat acceptance was akin to hyping Genocide.
“Now let’s discuss [Gabriella Karefa Johnson] and my good friend Lizzo. He said that Lizzo is a friend of Harley Pasternak, who is a trainer. “When Lizzo loses 10 pounds and announces it, the bots… on Instagram, they attack her for losing weight, because the media wants to put out a perception that being overweight is the new goal, when it’s actually unhealthy. Let’s get aside from the fact whether it’s fashion and Vogue, which it’s not, or if someone thinks it’s attractive, to each his own. It is actually dangerous. It is demonic for people to promote it… It’s a genocide against the Black race. They want to kill us .”
Concerning the criticisms from supermodel Gigi Hadid — who supported Karefa Johnson in the midst Ye’s tirade against it — West claimed they were part a “group mob” he described as “liberal Nazis which will go up to attack you
