Music and fashion icon Kanye West in a recent interview drew a comparison between abortion in the United States and the holocaust perpetuated by Nazi Germany, suggesting that both situations should be considered genocide.
Speaking on the Drink Champs podcast, West detailed a situation involving jewish Los Angeles Apparel founder Dov Charney, who printed his “White Lives Matter” shirts.
According to West, Charney instructed him to visit the Holocaust museum amid backlash over his allegedly “antisemitic” tweets about going “Death con 3 on Jewish People.”
In response, West apparently told Charney to visit Planned Parenthood, “our Holocaust museum.”
“I’m talking about ‘put out my White Lives Matter tee,’ the White Lives Matter tee don’t say nothing, it don’t say ‘DEFCON’ or nothing right? I’m like ‘put it out,’ and [Charney’s] telling me like ‘yo, I want you to visit the Holocaust museum,’ and I was like ‘yo, I want you to visit Planned Parenthood. That’s our Holocaust museum.’,” West said.

“I’m like, yo I put my life on this at this point. Cause they’ve been fucking with me too long. They put the crazy narrative out there,” West continued.
“Paparazzi taking a photo of you, you ain’t getting no money off of it. You’re used to getting screwed by the Jewish media,” West added. “And I’m saying, you poked the bear too fucking long.”
In a separate part of the interview, West asserted that George Floyd had actually died from a fentanyl overdose, and not from the actions of Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin.
“I watched the George Floyd documentary that Candace Owens put out. One of the things that his two roommates said was they want a tall guy like me, and the day that he died, he said a prayer for eight minutes,” West said on the podcast.
“They hit him with the fentanyl.” West said of the infamous video showing Floyd’s death, “If you look, the guy’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that.”

Of Floyd’s final words, West said, “When he said ‘mama’, ‘mama’ was his girlfriend.”
