Comment on this story
An earlier version of this article said that Ye and his then-wife, Kim Kardashian, sported head-to-toe black ensembles with masks and gloves at the 2021 Met Gala in New York. Kardashian and a friend wore the dress at the time, and Ye did not attend the event. This version has been corrected.
The rapper Ye praised Adolf Hitler and Nazis in an interview Thursday with far-right provocateur Alex Jones, drawing a fresh round of condemnation for his incendiary antisemitism a week after he dined with former president Donald Trump alongside white nationalist Nick Fuentes.
“I like Hitler,” a fully masked Ye told Jones. Minutes later, the rapper said, “I love Jewish people, but I also love Nazis.”
Jones laughed and quickly added, “Well, I have to disagree with that.”
Ye’s comments prompted sharp denunciations from across the political spectrum, including from some onetime supporters of the rapper, formerly known as Kanye West.
