Ye, the rapper and fashion designer formerly known as Kanye West, stormed out of an interview Monday after the host challenged some of his remarks that many have considered anti-Semitic.

West left the interview on Timcast, social media content creator and political commentator Tim Pool’s podcast, roughly 20 minutes into it alongside Nick Fuentes and Milo Yiannopoulos.

The 45-year-old rapper had called himself a vessel for God and compared himself to Martin Luther King Jr. before leaving.

“I thought I was more Malcom X, but I find out I’m more MLK because, as I’m getting hosed down every day by the press, and, financially, I’m just standing there,” he said. “When I found out that they tried to put me in jail, it was like a dog was biting my arm, and I almost shed a tear, almost, but I still walked in stride through it.”

“They have been extremely unfair to you,” Pool said.

“Who is they though?” West replied. “We can’t say who they is can we?”

Pool explained that he was talking about the corporate press as opposed to West and Fuentes who appeared to be referring to “they” as Jewish people.

“It is them though, isn’t it,” Fuentes said.

“No,” Pool shot back.

At that point West removed his headset and walked out.

“To come in here, I feel like it’s a set-up to be like defending … I’m literally going to walk the f*** off the show, if I’m sitting up here having to, you know, talk about, ‘You can’t say it was Jewish people that did it,'” West reportedly said before walking off the show.
