The 61-year-old claimed in the video, "I'm kind of appalled that not more artists have come out and spoken against what he's saying." He then added, "I'm appalled that Kim Kardashian hasn't come out and added her voice to this debate because this woman has children with Kanye, so she must understand as a mother what it feels like for little Jewish children to hear these f*****g comments, how demoralizing and terrifying it must be."

The singer then stated,  "As a gay man I have experienced years of prejudice, you know, so the idea of doing that to someone else based on their race or their color or their sexuality or their gender is just f*****g appalling to me, and it should be appalling to you."

Kanye created controversy after he came up with a series of antisemitic remarks, which resulted in him getting locked out of Twitter and Instagram. The controversial comments also cost him his partnership with Adidas, which used to manufacture Yeezy footwear, reports DailyMail. Hollywood super-agent Ari Emanuel also spoke up against Kanye in his recent op-ed with Financial Times, where he said, "Apple and Spotify, which host West's music, whoever organizes West's tours, and Adidas, which collaborates with West on his fashion line, should all stop working with him." Emmanuel then claimed, "Silence is dangerous; it allows forms of hatred and racism, including anti-Semitism, to spread and become normalized. It coarsens and degrades our society and country." Kanye is also dealing with other legal battles where George Floyd's family sued him for his bizarre statement in a podcast where he mentioned that Floyd died of a fentanyl overdose.

The statement from George came out at a time when Kanye hired Camille Vasquez - the attorney who defended Johnny Depp during his defamation trial - to represent his business interests including deals and contracts following the controversies surrounding his anti-semitic remarks. However, it is still unclear in what capacity Vasquez can assist the rapper.

Kim, on the other hand, has chosen to remain silent on Kanye's controversial remarks. The TV personality filed for divorce in 2021, after 6 years of marriage. The ex-couple, who started dating in 2011, welcomed their first child, North, in 2013 and later welcomed 3 more children - Saint, Chicago, and Psalm - into their lives. As per reports, Kanye has finally agreed to settle the divorce. In fact, amid the backlash, the rapper recently gave an interview to Piers Morgan, where he also talked about his ex-wife Kim and how he would always protect her. "I may be divorced on paper, but I'm not divorced from the idea of being the protector," he said.
