Kanye West got into a heated conversation with Chris Cuomo on live TV. The host denied that the “Jewish underground media mafia” is controlling people’s narratives.
The billionaire rapper, producer, and fashion icon sat down with Chris Cuomo and attempted to explained what he meant with his remarks about Jewish people.
“Every celebrity has Jewish people in their contract — this is not hate speech, this is the truth,” Ye said, while emphasizing that as a black man, he cannot be anti-Semitic.
“And these people, if you say anything out of the line with the agenda, then your career could be over,” Ye said.
He went on to say, “There’s so many Black musicians signed to Jewish record labels and those Jewish record labels take ownership … of the culture itself,” he added. “It’s like a modern day slavery, and I’m calling it out. That’s what ‘death con 3’ meant. It didn’t mean I wished any harm on my fellow Jewish people.”
Cuomo disagreed with Ye’s statements. “Look, there is no Jewish media, cabal, mafia. That is a figment of either your imagination or a projection of a prejudice,” Cuomo said.
