Kanye West’s Episode Of “The Shop” Not Airing Due To Content


Kanye West appeared on HBO’s The Shop, but the executive producers LeBron James and Maverick Carter decided to prevent any airing of the program.


Kanye West is making some enemies in the world of entertainment and business with his recent interviews and posts online. The rapper caused a stir online when he made comments about Jewish people on Twitter. This after getting restricted for remarks made on his official Instagram account.

Some clips that did not air on his Tucker Carlson interview have reached online. “My kids are going to a school that teaches Black kids a complicated Kwanzaa,” Ye said at one point. “I prefer my kids knew Hanukkah than Kwanzaa. At least it would come with some financial engineering.”

n the week since the interview aired, West has had his Instagram page restricted and tweeted about going “death con 3 on Jewish people.” He’s also recently suggested that Diddy is controlled by Jews and wore a “White Lives Matter” shirt at his YZY SZN 9 show.


In another post, he asked, “Who you think created cancel culture?”

In addition to being kicked off of Instagram, Ye’s recent behavior was also condemned by the American Jewish Committee (AJC). The organization took issue with comments he made during an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program.


Producer Maverick Carter shared a statement to the Hollywood Reporter revealing, “Yesterday we taped an episode of The Shop with Kanye West. Kanye was booked weeks ago and, after talking to Kanye directly the day before we taped, I believed he was capable of a respectful discussion and he was ready to address all his recent comments.”

The statement continued, “Unfortunately, he used The Shop to reiterate more hate speech and extremely dangerous stereotypes. We have made the decision not to air this episode or any of Kanye’s remarks. While The Shop embraces thoughtful discourse and differing opinions, we have zero tolerance for hate speech of any kind and will never allow our channels to be used to promote hate. I take full responsibility for believing Kanye wanted a different conversation and apologize to our guests and crew. Hate speech should never have an audience.”
