Ye, the artist formerly known as Kanye West, went off on the “Jewish media” for slandering him as crazy and trying to take him down in an wild interview with Drink Champs released late Saturday night.

“They’ve been fucking with me too long,” Ye said. “They put the ‘crazy’ narrative out there, my Jewish trainer, Harley Pasternak, who’s Lizzo’s trainer, put it out when I went to the hospital, put it in the press. I got a bunch of friends that went to the hospital — it didn’t go to the press.”
“They did that just like they did in the documentary, on the third episode, they said ‘We love Ye like the rest of y’all, we know he’s a genius like the rest of y’all, but sometimes you have to turn the camera off on him,’” he continued.
Ye also said his “White Lives Matter” t-shirt that was going to be put out by Dov Charney at LA Apparel was canceled because Charney was angry about his “Death Con” tweet.
“He ain’t releasing the tee, because he’s Jewish,” Ye said. “And I’m like, see this is my exact point that I’m making! Jewish people have owned the black voice, whether it’s through us wearing a Ralph Lauren shirt or it’s all of us being signed to a record label, or having a Jewish manager, or being signed to a Jewish basketball team or doing a movie on a Jewish platform like Disney.”
Ye said that when Charney told him he wants him to “visit the Holocaust Museum” he responded saying, “I want you to visit Planned Parenthood — that’s our Holocaust museum.”
Ye said he’s gotten “used to being screwed by the Jewish media” because it’s happened to him so many times before.
“Y’all done poked the bear too fucking long,” Ye said. “When I wore the White Lives Matter tee, I had four SoFi stadium shows — they canceled my shows! I said ‘it’s up!’”
Ye continued: “Let me tell you one thing, if a black man is caught in the car with something, everybody in the car is going to go to jail with him, but if a black man can play basketball or rap, only he gets the record deal. Meaning, if one black man does something bad, all the other blacks get caught with him. If one black man does something good, nobody else gets nothin’ with him. It’s the reverse for the Jewish people. If a Jewish person repeatedly fucks me on a deal, it’s just them, it’s just the businessman, it’s not the people, it’s not nobody else, but if a Jewish person does good, all of they people eat with them.”
“I gotta tell you something, where is a black guy who has a Jewish person signed to him?” Ye asked. “Point it out, tell me that!”
“Where is a black person that’s signed to a Jewish person? All of them! Basically 90 percent of them!”
“Y’all done poked the bear too many times,” Ye said. “Y’all should have learned with Drake, y’all should have learned with Puff, y’all should have learned with Hov, y’all dealing with a different kind of animal here! Everybody wants to say I’m 730 [crazy], well I’m going to use that to my advantage. I told y’all I’m the leader, I told y’all I’m gonna free my people in the name of God!”
In the wake of Ye’s controversial comments, he was suspended from Instagram and Twitter and reportedly had his bank account with JP Morgan Chase closed.
On Friday, HBO’s Bill Maher opened his interview with former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by asking him if Israel was going to “retaliate” against Ye for his tweets.
