Kanye West has once again stirred controversy with his recent comments, doubling down on his previous anti-Semitic remarks while asserting a contentious viewpoint that “Black people can’t be antisemitic.”

Speaking to TMZ at Los Angeles International Airport on Monday, following his attendance at the Super Bowl in Las Vegas, Kanye addressed the backlash stemming from his past statements about Jewish people, for which he had previously apologized.

Defending his right to express his opinions, Kanye remarked, “They got the right to their opinion. I got the right to my opinion. You understand what I’m saying? We all have the right to our opinions but so many people will lose their jobs, lose their careers for taking the steps that we took. We went down for like a year and a half.”

Regarding the fallout from his October 2022 tweet, where he mentioned going “death con 3” on Jewish people, Kanye stated, “I even sent the apology and [adidas] still fuck with me. Some of the stuff I was saying was true.”

Asserting his belief that Black people cannot be antisemitic, Kanye declared, “We are Jews, you understand what I’m saying? We are Jew.” He further expressed remorse for any discomfort his conversations may have caused Jewish fans, stating, “For all the Jewish kids that love me, I’m sorry if y’all had to hear a grown-up conversation with us screaming at each other, but we got to a point where something needed to happen, something needed to be said.”

This recent controversy comes despite Kanye’s previous attempt at reconciliation, including a public apology in Hebrew to the Jewish community late last year. In his apology, Kanye expressed regret for any unintended harm his words may have caused and pledged to educate himself to promote greater sensitivity and unity.

However, Kanye’s latest album with Ty Dolla $ign, “Vultures 1,” features lyrics that indicate a continuation of his defiant stance, including the line, “Crazy, bipolar, antisemite/ And I’m still the king,” from the closing song “King.”

While Kanye’s statements continue to draw criticism and controversy, it remains to be seen how he will navigate the fallout from his remarks and their impact on his career and public perception.
