Kanye West‘s episode on “The Shop: Uninterrupted” will not be aired as the producers of the YouTube talk show have decided to pull the episode due to alleged hate speech by the rapper.
“Yesterday we taped an episode of The Shop with Kanye West. Kanye was booked weeks ago and, after talking to Kanye directly the day before we taped, I believed he was capable of a respectful discussion and he was ready to address all his recent comments. Unfortunately, he used The Shop to reiterate more hate speech and extremely dangerous stereotypes,” said Maverick Carter, who is also CEO Springhill Company.
“We have made the decision not to air this episode or any of Kanye’s remarks. While The Shop embraces thoughtful discourse and differing opinions, we have zero tolerance for hate speech of any kind and will never allow our channels to be used to promote hate,” he added. “I take full responsibility for believing Kanye wanted a different conversation and apologize to our guests and crew. Hate speech should never have an audience.”
Carter and LeBron James co-produce “The Shop: Uninterrupted” talk show.
Ye’s anti-Semitic statements on social media have already resulted in his getting locked out of digital platforms. Recently, Ye’s Instagram post was pulled down for anti-Semitic language and he got locked out of his account.
West then returned to Twitter after a long hiatus from the platform, but he again posted a tweet that was anti-Semitic, writing, “I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.” The tweet was later taken down for violating Twitter‘s rules.
