Kanye West Issues An Apology For Anti-Semitic, George Floyd Comments
31st October On Friday night, Kanye West went on a weird diatribe in which he apologized for claiming incorrectly that George Floyd died from the opioid fentanyl rather than the actual cause, in which a Minneapolis police officer was kneeing him in the neck for nine minutes. West, who now goes by Ye, claimed he was unaware of his former remarks’ anti-semitic overtones.
While West did not apologize for his comments, he did mention that the controversy had humbled him and cost him an estimated $1 billion in business partnerships, including his wildly popular Yeezy apparel line marketed by Adidas.
West made assertions during the intricate and perplexing conversation, simultaneously retracting them. “When I see that video as a black person, it hurts my feelings. And I know that police do attack and America is generally racist,” he said to the photographers on the stand.
“And I understand that when we got to, say Black Lives Matter, the idea of it made us feel good together as a people, right? “So when I questioned the death of George Floyd, it hurt my people. I want to apologize. Because God showed me by what Adidas is doing, by what the media is doing, I know how it feels to have a knee on my neck now,” he continued.
“So thank you God for humbling me and letting me know how it really felt. Because how could the richest black men ever be humbled other than to be made to not be a billionaire in front of everyone off of one comment.”
