A bombshell new report claims Kanye West has allegedly used anti-Semitic rhetoric in the workplace for years and paid off a worker to silence them about the alleged racist behavior.

The Yeezy CEO, 45, entered a settlement agreement with a former employee who allegedly witnessed multiple instances in which the former billionaire praised Adolf Hitler or Nazis in business meetings, according to NBC News.

West has denied the claims made in the settlement, per the news outlet.

However, NBC News also spoke anonymously with six additional people who claim to have seen West either “mention conspiracy theories about Jewish people or praise Hitler” in a professional setting over the past five years.

Ryder Ripps, a conceptual artist who worked with the controversial designer off and on from 2014 to 2018, was the only one to speak on the record, and claimed he previously pushed back on West’s remarks because he is Jewish himself — but never thought the comments were “dangerous.”

“He had told me a bunch of s–t about like, how, ‘Nazis are good at propaganda,’” the creative designer alleged, adding that the “Stronger” rapper allegedly once said in 2018, “You’re not offended that like I’m interested in Nazis or something.”

Although it seems Ripps did not take West seriously before, it appears that has now changed after the “Praise God” rapper’s anti-Semitic comments have ramped up on social media and in interviews over the past few weeks — including writing that he was going to go “death con 3” on Jewish people.

“This is dangerous, and disgusting, and actually violent,” the artist told NBC News. 

“With this pattern that’s happening and with the doubling and tripling down of all this, it’s pretty obvious that this is some kind of disgusting, hate-filled, strange Nazi obsession.”

West’s remarks have seemingly emboldened anti-Semitic people.
