Leaked clips show Ye’s unaired, inflammatory remarks about Jewish people
Excerpts from Ye‘s interview with Tucker Carlson that didn’t make it to air may have ginned up even more chatter as the rapper made more inflammatory statements about Jewish people.
In leaked unaired footage, Kanye West, the rapper who legally changed his name to “Ye,” made multiple asides about Jewish people, claimed that “fake children” were planted in his home, and discussed his COVID-19 vaccination status.
TWITTER LOCKS DOWN KANYE WEST’S ACCOUNT AFTER MESSAGE ABOUT JEWISH PEOPLE
“I prefer my kids knew Hanukkah than Kwanzaa. At least it will come with some financial engineering,” he told Carlson in one of the leaked tapes obtained by Vice News’s Motherboard.
Ye did not elaborate on what he meant by “financial engineering,” but Jewish people have long weathered antisemitic smears that maintain they have control over powerful financial structures.
Shortly after Ye’s interview with Carlson aired, his Twitter account was locked after he said he was going to go “death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.”
In his tweet, Ye argued he “can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew.” At another point in the leaked footage, Ye, who is not Jewish, explained appeared to allude to that sentiment.
“When I say Jew, I mean the 12 lost tribes of Judah, the blood of Christ, who the people known as the race black [people] really are,” Ye told Carlson. “This is who our people are. The blood of Christ. This, as a Christian, is my belief.”
His remark came during a discussion in which he claimed that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger sought to “control the Jew population.” Part of his discussion about abortion’s toll on the black community made it into the portion of the interview that aired.
One of the segments that attracted widespread attention was Ye’s assertion that he would one day become president. But a leaked clip indicates there was more to his claim.
Ye told Carlson that he would become “the first Latino president,” adding that “I just, I trust Latinos when I, you know, when I work with them … I trust them more than — I’ll be safe, certain other businessmen, you know,” according to the outlet.
Another claim Ye made during an unaired piece of the interview was that “fake children” were implanted in his home.
“I mean, like actors, professional actors, placed into my house to sexualize my kids,” he told Carlson, per the outlet. “We didn’t even believe that this person was her son because he was way smarter than her, right?”
In some cases, brief asides were trimmed from the interview that aired. For example, when Carlson asked Ye about whether he was manipulated by political powers through his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, Ye noted that “I was vaccinated,” but that was cut out, according to the report.

News outlets frequently trim video interviews due to time limits. The Washington Examiner reached out to Fox News for comment.
Ye has previously divulged that he lives with bipolar disorder and has suffered from manic episodes.
