While there have been plenty of jokes about Swift on the subreddit, former fans of the rapper are taking serious messages to clear up Ye's misinformation, sharing graphic details and images to emphasize just how horrific Hitler's actions against the Jewish people were.
In an interview with Ye Jones, he boldly declared that he "saw good things even in Hitler. I love them all, and the Jews will not say to me, 'You can love us, and you can love us through contracts.' and you're going to like what we promote through pornography." But this guy who found the highway and found the microphone that I use as a musician, you can't say out loud that this guy has never done anything good, and I've had enough. I'm done with ranking.
Despite Jones' discomfort with the comments during the interview, Ye doubled down, adding, "I don't like the word 'bad' next to Nazis…I like Jews, but I also like Nazis." Reiterating that it's "time to promote love," he added, "I love Hitler. I love the Zionists."
As for Ye's comments, several celebrities slammed the rapper on social media. Twitter banned his account after he shared the Star of David with the swastika that has become a symbol of the 2024 presidential campaign.
