Wearing a full black mask, Ye to Alex Jones: 'I like Hitler'
Ye continues to find himself in a pickle; either involuntarily or NOT.
During an interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on his platform Infowars, Ye, wearing a black mask completely covering his face, said he likes Adolf Hitler, leader of Nazi Germany whose regime cost the lives of millions.
"I like Hitler," Ye told Jonse. "I love Jewish people, but I also love Nazis."
Even though West hid his face, there seemed no doubt it was him.

This comes in light of recent accusations held against the rapper over racist and anti-semitic remarks, which caused him to lose deals with Adidas, Balenciaga, Gap, Footlocker, and other brands.
Ye further said he did not like the adjective “evil” to refer to Nazis, stressing that every human being has something of value, "especially Hitler".

Neo-Nazi Nick Fuentes also appeared on the show and said women shouldn’t be allowed to vote.
Ye was recently spotted at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago country club and home in the company of self-proclaimed white nationalist Nick Fuentes in November.
Republicans have normalized hate so much in America that Kanye can wildly declare how much he loves Nazis and Hitler, and folks are like ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.— BrooklynDad_Defiant!☮️ (@mmpadellan) December 1, 2022
So disgusted right now.
In the subsequent video, titled "Mar-A-Lago Debrief," Ye said after he asked Trump to run as his vice-president in the 2024 elections, the former President "started basically screaming at me at the table, telling me I’m going to lose. Has that ever worked for anyone in history? I’m like, 'Wait, hold on Trump, you’re talking to Ye.’"
Fuentes, on his part, is reputed for his provocative racist, misogynistic, and fascist opinions.
In 2020, he founded a white nationalist organization called America First Foundation.
He has frequently been called a white supremacist by the US Department of Justice and has been banned from multiple social media platforms.
