Kanye West’s appearance on the YouTube chat show ‘The Shop’ will not be shown out after it came to light that Kanye had used the show to “reiterate hate speech.”
West has recently found himself in a sticky situation as a result of antisemitic statements that he made, which led to the locking of his social media accounts. However, the show still proceeded with the presumption that Kanye would not further exacerbate the matter during the interview; however, this did not turn out to be the case.
Host Maverick Carter said: “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,” Carter said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.”
“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. I take full responsibility for believing Kanye wanted a different conversation and apologise to our guests and crew. Hate speech should never have an audience.”
