    “I Was Two Months From Going Bankrupt”: Kanye West Says He Lost Everything After Getting “Canceled” For His Antisemitic Remarks

    Kanye West is back to making some unbelievably bold claims. The rapper has been in the limelight for all the wrong reasons recently. Since his divorce from Kim Kardashian, Kanye West has made headlines for marrying model Bianca Censori and then showing off her semi-nude pictures on his social media. Besides, the rapper also recently gained the limelight for his $850K “fixed and permanent” titanium dentures.

    Another controversy that the rapper got himself mired into was for his antisemitic comments which made him the target of some harsh criticism on social media. Months after it mellowed down, the rapper is now claiming that the controversy and his getting canceled because of it led him to the brink of bankruptcy.

    Kanye West recently said that he had to face some serious financial struggles after the infamous antisemitic controversy that he was mired into a few months back. In a recent interview with TMZ at LAX Airport, the rapper said that he was on the brink of bankruptcy just two months ago as he got “canceled” for his controversial remarks.

    Buoyed by the success of his latest album ‘Vultures’ and his Yeezy Super Bowl commercial, Kanye West said, “Number one all over the world,” as he landed at LAX Airport on Monday on his return from the big game in Las Vegas.

    I’ma just be honest with y’all. I was two months from going bankrupt, and I put everything I had into it,” he told a media outlet at the airport.

    We moved to Italy. We moved to the factories, and we survived. We survived through the cancellation. We’re back No. 1,” West said, referring to the time when he was highly criticized for the antisemitic comments on social media. The rapper had also issued an apology in Hebrew to the Jewish community through his official Instagram account.

    The Grammy winner credited his “various skill sets” for his ability to overcome the backlash.

    When asked about his past antisemitic comments and whether he regretted them, West maintained his unapologetic stance. “They got the right to their opinion — I got the right to my opinion,” he asserted.

    West has potentially reignited the controversy around his antisemitic stance with his new album, ‘Vultures’ wherein he has referred to himself as an “antisemite.” During the album’s listening party at the United Center in Chicago, West revealed the track with the provocative lyrics: “And I’m still crazy, bipolar, antisemite / And I’m still the king.”

    The rapper was donning his iconic Jason Voorhees mask at the time, and the show was temporarily halted as the problematic lyrics were aired. Even though Kanye claims that the cancellation led to bankruptcy, it seems he is not scared or regretful about maintaining his controversial stance.
