The rapper has again raised controversy after his latest statements about the Nazis and Hitler.
During an interview on a program of a well-known conspiracy theorist in the United States, rapper Kanye West has acknowledged that he likes Hitler. “There are many things I like about him. Many things,” he said.
In this respect the musician has also explained that he is tired of not being able to speak freely about the subject without being criticized. ” From Hitler, who invented the freeways and invented the same microphone I use as a musician, you can’t say out loud that he never did anything good, and I’m sick of it. I am tired of classifications. Every human being has something of value,” he said.
Later, he talked about the Jews, he said “most of them are great people”, but that in his opinion there is a “Jewish mafia”. ” I don’t like the word ‘evil’ next to the Nazis. I love the Jews, but I also love the Nazis,” he added.
Coinciding with these statements the musician has published on his Twitter profile an image where a swastika and a star of David appear intertwined. After that the social network Twitter has decided to suspend its account for “incitement to violence”.
These statements come months after Adidas decided to end the employment relationship with the singer because of his anti-Semitic statements. In a statement, the German sportswear giant explained that “after studying it in depth” he made the decision to “immediately end the collaboration with Ye”, a stage name for which West is also known. “Adidas does not tolerate anti-Semitism or any other form of hate speech. The comments are unacceptable and dangerous,” the company added.
