Kanye West apologized for causing “hurt and confusion” with anti-Semitic comments he made last week.
Pop up Piers Morgan uncensored On Wednesday, the host asked the rapper if he regretted threatening “DEFCON 3 on Jewish people.”
West initially doubled down on his comments, replying, “No, absolutely not.”
Morgan then asked if he knew the comments were racist, to which West confirmed, “Yeah, that’s why I said it… I fought fire with fire. I’m not here to be hosed down.”
Later in the show, however, West offered some form of apology, saying, “I’ll say I’m sorry for the people I hurt with DEFCON… the confusion I caused. I feel hurt and confused and I feel sorry for the families who were unrelated to the trauma I went through.
“Hurt people hurt people – and I got hurt.”
During his October 15 appearance at the drinking champs Podcast accused West of “Jewish media” and “Jewish Zionists” for numerous alleged wrongdoings, saying that “Jewish people own the black voice” and that “the Jewish community, particularly in the music industry… will take them from us and milk us until we die.” “.
