Rapper and fashion designer Kanye West is facing backlash and cancel culture due to a string of controversial statements and actions.
Despite his previous success in the music and fashion industries, many in Hollywood are distancing themselves from him, leading to speculation that he may lose his billion-dollar fortune.
West’s decline in popularity can be traced back to his attacks on his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, after their divorce and his bullying commentary about her and Pete Davidson.
He then faced criticism for his White Lies Matter t-shirt, which he wore at Paris Fashion Week, and his subsequent attack on the Black Lives Matter movement.
He then made anti-Semitic comments on Instagram, resulting in the platform restricting his account.
West’s decline continued when he revived his Twitter account and made comments about the Jewish community, leading to calls for him to be blacklisted by Hollywood and cancel culture.
He refused to apologize for his actions, even when given the opportunity during interviews with Piers Morgan and others.
In one interview, he claimed he was going to war, but couldn’t afford it as he only had $120 million in his bank account.
The situation worsened when West made further offensive statements on the Drink Champs podcast, angering people even more.
He claimed that he had a “God-complex” and compared himself to Jesus, saying “I am Jesus, I’m here to save the world.”
He also made derogatory comments about his marriage to Kardashian and claimed that he “bought” her and their children.
West’s actions and statements have been widely condemned by the Jewish and Black communities, as well as other groups who are against hate speech.
Many in Hollywood have called for him to face the consequences of his actions, and his career and reputation seem to be on the brink.
Despite his previous success, it seems that West’s words and actions have finally caught up with him, leading to his downfall.
He has faced calls to apologize for his offensive language and actions, but so far he has refused to do so.
It remains to be seen how he will fight back and secure his legacy, but the road ahead will likely be a difficult one.
“This ain’t a game,” West wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post. “It was concerning that Ye seemed to declare war on the Jews publicly.”
“Who do you think created cancel culture?” West tweeted in a now-deleted tweet.
“I am Jesus, I’m here to save the world,” West said on the Drink Champs podcast. “I have a God-complex.”
“I bought her, I bought her, I bought her and her children,” West said on the podcast, referring to his marriage to Kardashian.
“I wouldn’t do that again,” Morgan told West in an interview, referring to his anti-Semitic comments. “I think people would respect you if you said that.”
