In a recent turn of events, Kanye West apologized to the Jewish community, leaving many skeptical about the authenticity of the public statement.
The discussion surrounding his apology prompted speculation about the real motivations behind his gesture. While speaking to TMZ, Hot 97 host Peter Rosenberg questioned if there’s a sample he needed to clear before his album release this Friday. He then asked if was it a calculated move to gain public favor, given Kanye’s notorious habit of being late with album-related matters.
While some may argue that Kanye is known for being many things, Rosenberg stated that inauthentic is not one of them. He stated that Kanye’s apology appeared disingenuous and forced, and he went on to to point out Kanye’s prolonged fascination with Hitler and his espoused anti-Semitic views. This obsession has persisted for years, far beyond an isolated incident.
