Kanye West accuses 'Jewish underground media mafia' of targeting him in BONKERS Chris Cuomo interview
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Kanye West launched into another anti-semantic rant during an interview with new host Chris Cuomo on Monday, October 17. The 45-year-old rapper alleged that a "Jewish underground media mafia" was colluding to ruin his career, and offered the media's backlash against him for wearing a Whites Lives Matter event at the Paris Fashion Week as an example.
The interview comes after West announced his plans to buy Parler after Twitter banned him for declaring war on Jews. In addition, West complained to Cuomo that the "Jewish media" never called him a billionaire.

"When I wore that White Lives Matter t-shirt, the Jewish underground media mafia already started attacking me," West said while driving around in his car. "They canceled my store, SoFi stadium shows," he claimed. "Right, they have the press saying on 78 outlets that when I was arguing with Pete Davidson and Trevor Noah, they called me an abuser for arguing with people about my ex-wife and my family and when I get to see my kids and when I don't." Kanye added, "They just immediately disrespect me and keep this crazy narrative going."

"They never call me a billionaire," he continued. "We never talk about even one right here, Hey, tycoon, billionaire, visionary, inventor. These are never used." Cuomo pushed back on the rapper's claims, saying there was no secret group of wealthy Jews colluding to harm his career, adding it is "either a figment of your imagination or a projection of your prejudice."
"You may have had bad business dealings with people, OK," the News Nation host added. "It's about those people, it's not about religion or faith." Cuomo alleges to West that "when you target people because of their faith, other people may do the same."
He added that people "may be abused or killed because of what they believe and who they are" and 'we won't tolerate that'.
Whilst Kanye interjected and said, "And I won't tolerate it as a black person," noting that over 50 percent of Hollywood executives are Jewish. Cuomo instantly responded by saying, "That's different than saying there's a mafia and they act as Jews in some way as opposed to just being businessmen. One plays to a prejudice, the other one just plays to people in an ugly business. So you may have your feelings about it, just don't ascribe it to their faith."
Soon Kanye made it clear that he had no interest in listening to Cuomo. As the two talked over each other, Cuomo tried to explain to the rapper what was wrong with what he was saying. But Kanye broke into a juvenile “La la la la la la” to avoid hearing what the host had to say.
