Radio personality Charlamagne tha God is expressing concern that Ye, the rapper previously known as Kanye West, is heading down a deadly path in the wake of his recent actions embracing anti-Semitism, Nazism, and Adolf Hitler.
Charlamagne, along with his Breakfast Club co-hosts Angela Yee and DJ Envy, were in agreement that the rap and fashion icon should not be given any more screen time from the media following Ye’s Friday appearance on Info Wars. The radio personalities slammed Ye’s comments as “dangerous” and called him “a clown” and “a bigot.”
“Man, I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. Kanye West is moving like a person who doesn’t feel like he’s gonna be here much longer. And it’s sad that folks are just watching this like it’s normal. That man needs to be committed to an institution,” Charlamagne said after listening to a clip of Ye pretending to be Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “We are watching a manic episode in real-time and it’s getting progressively worse. And the pain that man is going through, he’s projecting, you know, on himself and everyone else and it’s not going to end well.”

The hosts also refuted Ye’s positive contentions about Adolf Hitler, such as that he invented the microphone, noting that the rapper’s claims were actually false. They also noted that nothing could justify the murder of six million people.
“You have to rebut some of these things,” Charlamagne said.
In his shocking Info Wars appearance on Thursday, host Alex Jones gave Ye numerous opportunities to walk back his comments declaring his “love” for Nazism and Adolf Hitler, but the rapper declined.
