Kanye West, officially known as Ye, continues to go hard for the title of Worst Person by attending interviews with gaggles of white supremacists, antisemitic far-right trolls, accused pedophiles, and other garbage humans.
However, West has gotten so bad that he can’t even seem to get along with the bottom of the barrel, fighting with Donald Trump over who’s going to be president and most recently storming out of a Tim Pool interview.
Tim Pool himself is a far-right conspiracy theorist who has called himself liberal but spouts ultra-conservative talking points on his YouTube show. When Pool wouldn’t explicitly condemn Jewish people following West’s lead, the rapper immediately got up and stormed out of the studio after a 20-minute rant about all the mostly Jewish people who had wronged him.
According to the Daily Beast, Pool actually offered words of support to West during a short pause in West’s rant, saying that he thinks “they’ve been extremely unfair to you.” West then demanded that Pool clarify who he meant by “they,” and was not happy when the host came back with the answer “the corporate press.”
“Who is ‘they,’ though?” Ye asked.
Pool began to dance around an answer when Nick Fuentes, vile white supremacist, holocaust denier, and all-around bigot, jumped in to say “it is them, though, isn’t it?” If you’re somehow still not getting it, the “they” and “them” is referring to Jewish people. As Fuentes suggests that people “think about it,” Pool can be heard saying “no, it’s not” and that was it for West.
“What do you mean it’s not?” West demanded.
Before Pool can jump in and salvage things, West gets up from his chair and leaves. This doesn’t please Pool, who apparently was eager to have a “discussion” about the ancient conspiracy theory that Jewish people control everything with some kind of secret evil cabals or whatever.
Milo Yiannopoulos, the far-right troll who had to say that his homosexuality had been “cured” by religion after he was rejected by conservatives for defending pedophilia, was also in attendance. He and Fuentes soon left the studio as well, leaving sad little Pool alone to fill the rest of the time with self-pity.
These are the kinds of people you have supporting and hanging out with Donald Trump and other Republican party candidates. West and Fuentes recently appeared together in national headlines along with Trump after the three of them had dinner together, though the former president claims he didn’t know Fuentes was coming along. He also claimed that West didn’t say anything antisemitic during the dinner.
This activity continues to deeply alarm Jewish people and everyone who isn’t blatantly antisemitic. It’s reached the point where a celebrity with millions of fans won’t even hang around if you refuse to say Jewish people are controlling all the media, which does not bode well at all for the future of people who don’t suck.
