Kanye West claims a Jewish ‘media mafia’ is out to get him

Kanye West sparred on live TV with Chris Cuomo as the host ripped his “nasty,” “demonstrably false” and “inherently anti-Semitic” claim that an all-controlling “Jewish underground media mafia” is out to get him.

The rapper-turned-fashion mogul sat in the back of a car for a heated interview Monday on Cuomo’s NewsNation show, where he was challenged for previously saying he “good death con 3 on JEWS.”

Cuomo repeatedly challenged the star, now known as Ye, as he doubled down as he tried to justify his troubles.

“Every celebrity has Jewish people in their contract – this is not hate speech, this is the truth,” Ye insisted, repeatedly asserting that as a black man he cannot be accused of anti-Semitism.

“And these people, if you say something off the agenda, your career could be over,” Ye argued.

“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 [in Los Angeles]they had the press … instant disrespect for me [and] keep the crazy narrative going,” Ye argued while constantly complaining about Cuomo’s lines.

“They never call me a billionaire,” he griped. “Hey, tycoon, billionaire, visionary, inventor – these are never used,” he said.

He singled out the New York Times for referring to him only as “thug rapper”, although a search suggests that Gray Lady has only used the term once in a review in 2006 before he was known for his other endeavors and not in a direct reference to him.

At one point, he compared his anger toward Jewish business partners to women who didn’t like men after having “one bad man” in their lives.

“There must be over 10 times that I’ve been screwed over or bad business done to me just in those two years alone,” he said, making the leap because “over 50% of the directors and CEOs in Hollywood is Jewish. .”

Cuomo repeatedly shot back, telling Ye that his “nasty” thoughts “are not things you can say that come from a place of intelligence or love or anything productive.”

“So look, there is no Jewish media cable [or] mafia. It’s a figment of either your imagination or a projection of a prejudice, OK,” the fired CNN host firmly emphasized.

“You may have had bad business dealings with people – it’s about those people. It’s not about their religion or beliefs. And I know you’re intelligent and understand that when you target people because of their beliefs, others can people do the same.”

“They’ve been attacked 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 it right now, whether you know it or not,” Cuomo added.

He also reminded Ye that there is a crucial, clear difference between “saying they are a mafia and acting as ‘Jews’ in some way as opposed to just being businessmen.

“One is playing to a prejudice, the other is just playing to people and a nasty business, which is what the record business is,” Cuomo stressed.

Ye insisted he was “not backing down” — and at one point childishly yelled “la-la-la-la” to stop Cuomo from arguing against him.

He also insisted that he is “coming from a place of love” — as well as “a place where we no longer want to be owned by the Jewish media.”

Regarding the accusation that he is anti-Semitic, Ye again asserted that “black Jews too – I also classify as a Jew, so I can’t actually be anti-Semitic. So the term is factual – it’s not factual.”

At the end of their celebratory exchange, Cuomo suggested Ye seemed “out of control” and asked if he was taking care of himself.

Angered, Ye asked Cuomo if he had worked out that morning, to which the host replied, “No. But I took my medication — I took my anti-depressant medication that I take every day.”
