The West Coast rapper/actor Ice Cube went to Twitter recently to express thoughts about Kanye West. Cube claims to be confused as to what Ye was getting at. “Please leave my name out of all the antisemitic talk,” Cube said. “I’m not antisemitic and never have been.”
In the now-removed Drink Champs episode, Ye spoke on Cube multiple times. Kanye compared their similarities and how much he agreed with Ice Cube, who clearly wants no parts. Major outlets have been calling the words Ye used antisemitic and claim prominent conspiracy theorists and extremist groups are leveraging Ye to promote hate.
