IN A BBC DOCUMENTARY, KANYE WEST WAS ACCUSED OF NEW ANTI-SEMETIC REMARKS THAT MIGHT SEVERELY DAMAGE HIS ALREADY SHAKY CAREER

Published:

Kanye West faces new anti-Semitism allegations in BBC documentary that could further tarnish his troubled career.

In a compelling new documentary titled “The Trouble with Kanye,” set to premiere tonight on BBC Two and accompanied by a podcast, acclaimed rapper Kanye West finds himself confronted with additional accusations of antisemitism. Former business partner Alex Klein steps forward in the film, revealing West’s anti- Jewish remarks that transpired when their professional collaboration came to an end.

Klein, renowned as the creator of West’s Stem Player for the album “Donda 2,” details the breakdown of their relationship following West’s previous antisemitic statements. According to Klein, this unraveling ultimately triggered an outburst from West, which is captured in the documentary. Klein recounts West’s expressions of anger, stating, “Kanye was infuriated, making comments like ‘I feel like I wanna smack you’ and ‘you’re exactly like the other Jews.’ He seemed to derive a perverse satisfaction from being offensive, deliberately using these phrases in an attempt to inflict harm.” Klein further recalls challenging West, asking if he genuinely believed that Jews were conspiring against him. West’s response was unyielding, asserting, “Yes, I do believe that, but it’s not a statement¬†I feel compelled to retract because just look at the momentum surrounding me right now. Without that statement, I wouldn’t become president.”

Last year, in an interview with the LA Times, Klein disclosed that West had accused him of racism when he gently advised against targeting an entire race of people, emphasizing the detrimental impact it could have on both West and Stem.

The consequences of West’s repeated antisemitic outbursts, which have included praise for Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, have left his career in shambles. Many attributes a surge in antisemitic hate crimes in the U.S. at least in part to his influence. Consequently, West has faced widespread condemnation, leading to his dismissal by CAA and expulsion from various platforms, including Twitter.

The documentary takes viewers on a journey as presenter Mobeen Azhar travels to Cornerstone Christian Church in California, a known haunt of West’s. During his visit, Azhar encounters a homeless man named Mark, who resides in his car near the church. Mark reveals that West had approached him to serve as his Campaign Manager for the 2024 Presidential Election. The documentary also features John Boyd, who spearheaded West’s 2020 presidential campaign. Additionally, the program sheds lighton West’s regular visits to the church, where white nationalist Nick Fuentes has been known to convene political meetings.

The BBC has sought West’s response to these serious allegations, yet he has remained silent on the matter. Deadline’s attempts to reach him for comment have also proven fruitless.
