Kanye West is a controversial figure but, as of last year, has been engaging in what one can only describe as a form of self-sabotage. That pattern has continued into 2023 as he continues to air his anti-semitic sentiments on public platforms.
Earlier this year, the self-proclaimed billionaire entrepreneur posted a screenshot of himself deactivating his Instagram account, and fans have heard little from him since. Last year, the ‘Stronger’ emcee was suspended from Instagram for posting what was deemed anti-Semitic hate speech.
Furthermore, the new owner of Twitter, Elon Musk, shut down West’s Twitter account after he posted various offensive images, including a Swastika. However, he has yet to cease his rampage.
The Chicago legend has fraternised with right-wing extremists such as Nick Fuentes and Alex Jones in the past and has happily lapped up socially toxic ideologies over the past 12 months. However, after what was a wise period of silence, he is back at it again.
West has had a gripe with the Jewish elites of Hollywood and the music industry, most notably individuals such as Ari Emanuel and Lyor Cohen. However, the Graduation hitmaker has even aimed at the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, in the past.
This latest BBC documentary entitled, The Trouble With KanYe, will explore what it dubs as “the complex journey that led Ye to become one of the most famous and creatively successful artists of his generation.” However, it will also attempt to locate the source of West’s controversial and conspiratorial philosophies.
In the upcoming documentary, the ‘Monster’ rapper blasts Jewish tech entrepreneur Alex Klein, and in a confusing manner, tries to communicate why he believes there are higher powers behind brands such as Balenciaga and people Jay-Z. The highly anticipated documentary is led by investigative journalist Mobeen Azhar.
