Howard Stern isn’t holding back his anger at Kanye West

Kanye “Ye” West is rapidly losing followers. The drama began on Oct. 10, 2022, when the rapper was banned from his Twitter and Instagram accounts for making anti-Semitic comments, per The Washington Post. In the since-deleted post, Ye vowed to go “Death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” writing, “You guys have been playing with me and trying to blackball anyone who defies your agenda,” per AJC. The backlash was quick as the rapper’s various business ventures all met with great success. His Yeezy brand was dropped by JPMorgan Chase, Balenciaga seemingly distanced itself from their partnership and his relationship with Adidas is now under scrutiny. Ye’s personal life seems to be collapsing around him, too, as he’s just passed the point of no return with the Kardashians thanks to his many other questionable antics, which include his friendship with Kim Kardashian’s outspoken ex, Ray J.

Additionally, the number of individual voices speaking out against Ye is growing rapidly as A-listers continue to publicly condemn his words and actions. Jamie Lee Curtis recalled the story when she tweeted that “a threat to the Jewish people once ended in genocide,” while Maria Shriver wrote, “These kinds of threats and this kind of language must be condemned by all quarters and all faiths.” Now the list of people clapping back at Ye has grown yet again as radio personality Howard Stern has added his voice to the backlash.

Howard Stern unleashed a tirade on Kanye West

Howard Stern was never one to hold back, and on the October 19, 2022 episode of The Howard Stern Show (via Daily Mail), he went after Kanye West. The famous host admitted he was tempted not to talk about the rapper to avoid devoting energy to him, but decided he couldn’t remain silent any longer. “I’m really tired of people excusing his behavior by saying, ‘Well, he’s just mentally ill,'” he told listeners. Stern (who is Jewish and shared personal experiences of violent anti-Semitic behavior) responded to Ye’s anti-Semitic remarks and played a clip of the musician’s recent interview with Chris Cuomo, in which he described the “Jewish underground media mafia,” according to the New York Post accused of “trying to sabotage his career. Highlighting his own experiences with the press, Stern addressed Ye directly and slammed, “You know what, idiot? When they write about me they call me the shock jock – you have no control over it [that].” He even went so far as to make a chilling comparison, saying, “Kanye used to be funny crazy — now he’s like Hitler.”

As for Ye, he has since apologized for his remarks. Speaking to Piers Morgan, Ye said he wasn’t sorry for making the comments, but he eventually conceded, “I’ll say I’m sorry for the people I’ve hurt.” Seemingly trying to put his To justify beliefs, he added, “Hurt people hurt people, and I got hurt.”
