To no one’s surprise, Kanye West has been facing a lot of backlash after his recent publicity stunt, which involved Candace Owens and awful “White Lives Matter” t-shirts. Now that he’s been suspended from both Twitter and Instagram for his nonsensical antisemitic rant, he continues to dig himself into a deeper hole by joining Donald Trump’s new social media platform, Truth Social.
That Only Scratches The Surface
Among all of this, Ye also purchased Parler, a right-wing social networking service formerly owned by George Farmer, Candace Owens’ husband. In a Bloomberg interview, Ye said, “the most important resource that our species has is knowledge.” That’s pretty funny coming from someone who doesn’t read books. “This is the reason why the compression of thought and free thought has to be overcome to save the human race. It’s literally that serious. And that’s the reason why I am willing to put everything at risk because they’ve already taken enough from me for differences of opinion,” he added.
Kanye will also be having dinner with Trump, an apparent close friend who also spouts antisemitic nonsense regularly.
“No President has done more for Israel than I have,” Trump said on Truth Social. “Somewhat surprisingly, however, our wonderful Evangelicals are far more appreciative of this than the people of the Jewish faith, especially those living in the U.S. Those living in Israel, though, are a different story – Highest approval rating in the World, could easily be P.M.! U.S. Jews have to get their act together and appreciate what they have in Israel – Before it is too late!”
It’s known that Kanye West has mental health issues, and he has all the money to get the help he needs. Instead, he puts his focus on saying ridiculous things and disrespecting his own culture. Unfortunately, his followers and the media still give him the pointless attention he’s asking for.
A Not-So-Bright Future
Trump is well-known for creating lies and stirring up controversy. While Kanye hasn’t always been so controversial, pairing these two together will likely bring nothing but bad news. In the 21st century, this could potentially tarnish Ye’s entire career (if it hasn’t already).
Do Kanye’s recent stunts surprise anyone anymore? Is there an actual reason he’s doing this or is this all some wild attempt to stay in the spotlight?
