Kanye West, a magnet for controversy, has once again landed himself in hot water with some comments he made about Adolf Hitler.
During his recent appearance on Infowars, Kanye was initially defended by host Alex Jones, as he said the rapper doesn’t “deserve to be called [a Nazi] or demonized.”
However, Kanye took the opportunity to speak on how he views Hitler, and it all went downhill from there.
Kanye West: “I Like Hitler”
Kanye immediately honed in on Alex bringing up Nazis and revealed that he recognizes “good things about Hitler.”
“I see good things about Hitler also. I love everyone. Jewish people are not going to tell me you can love us, and you can love what we’re doing to you with the contracts, and you can love what we’re pushing with the pornography. But this guy that invented highways, invented the very microphone that I use as a musician, you can’t say out loud that this person ever did anything good, and I’m done with that.”
He went on to say that everyone has “value that they brought to the table—especially Hitler.”
“I’m done with the classifications. Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table—especially Hitler.”
Later during the sit-down, Alex—a far-right conspiracy theorist—pushed back against some of Kanye’s statements. In fact, Jones outright said, “I don’t like Nazis, and I don’t like what some of the mafias are doing either.”
In response, Kanye declared that he “like[s] Hitler.”

Furthermore, TMZ reports that Kanye also implored people to “stop dissing the Nazis.”
Kanye Gives Alex Jones & Nick Fuentes Access To His Twitter
We should add that Kanye made another eyebrow-raising announcement on Infowars, as he declared that he’d allow Alex Jones and Nick Fuentes, another highly controversial figure, to tweet from his account.
“Nick Fuentes doesn’t have a Twitter account. Alex Jones doesn’t have a Twitter. But hey, guess what, Elon? I got a Twitter, and today I’m gonna have Nick and Alex tweet from my account.”

North West Was JUST Spotted With Kanye While Donning Star of David
This snafu comes on the heels of Kanye and his oldest child, North West, being spotted while out and about.
Notably, North was seen wearing a shirt that featured a Star of David with a cross in the middle.

This shirt is actually from merchandise that Kanye unveiled at his Donda listening parties back in 2021. However, TMZ reports that the specific meaning behind this design is unclear.
What do you think about the entire situation? Also, do you think Kanye could really be on the road to getting canceled?
