Kanye West has been back in his controversial state for the last few weeks as the latest incident happened when the Rapper made false remarks on the late George Floyd’s death and also controversial statements about the Jewish community on his latest appearance on Revolt’s Drinks Champs hosted by NORE and EFN.
On his third appearance on Drink Champs West made a false claim on last year’s murder of George Floyd by police harassment. Kanye went on to say that Floyd died from Fentanyl and “the Police Officer’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that.”

Later in the interview, Kanye also went on an Anti-semitic rant at Jewish people blaming Jewish people to own the Black voice ” through Black people wearing a Ralph Lauren shirt, “being signed to a record label, or having a Jewish manager, or being signed to a Jewish basketball team, or doing a movie on a Jewish platform like Disney.”

As expected Kanye’s comments met with huge backlash adding to the reports that George Floyd’s family is considering suing the Rapper. Revolt has now deleted the whole three-hour episode of Kanye’s latest appearance on their respective channels also the co-host N.O.R.E himself called Hot 97 and apologized for the episode saying “As a journalist, you’re really not supposed to have an opinion, you’re supposed to let people talk. And my biggest critique on Drink Champs is ‘N.O.R.E., you always cut people off!’ And this is the one time I didn’t cut the people, didn’t cut ’em off, and everyone’s mad.”
