Kanye West is known for his social media rants but just recently, he proved he’s not only fighting on social media.
Last weekend, the Donda artist attended his son Saint’s soccer game in Los Angeles and got into a heated argument with another parent. The whole episode was captured on cam.
Based in footage obtained by TMZ, the Yeezy founder, who recently received backlash for his anti-Semitic rants online, was seen having an argument with an unidentified person on the sideline during his son’s game.
Kim Kardashian, Kanye’s estranged wife, was also present at the game. They also share North, 9, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3. She was sitting in a lawn chair surrounded by her security and didn’t react to the commotion going on around 30 feet away. Kanye was seen very frustrated and waving his arms.
A woman, who seemed to be a family friend, went over to the rapper and said something to him that caused him to storm off the field. Meanwhile, a witness told the outlet that the musician calmed down a few minutes later and then went back to watch the rest of his son’s game.
The outlet also noted that Kanye, 45, and Kim, 42, didn’t interact while watching their son’s match.
A few weeks ago, Kanye was criticized for his anti-Semitic posts on social media. During an interview with British broadcaster, Piers Morgan, he isn’t sorry for his tweet on gong “death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.”
To which, Morgan said, “You should be.” The host, 57, also mentioned about anti-Semitism being equal to racism and Kanye replied, “Yeah, that’s why I said it.”
Kim has already posted a statement on her Instagram regarding her ex-husband’s behavior. She wrote, “Hate speech is never OK or excusable. I stand together with the Jewish community and call on the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end.”- Advertisement -
As a result of his controversial rant, many of his business partners ended their relationship with the rapper, including Balenciaga, Adidas, GAP, JP Morgan Chase, and more.
Before his anti-Semitic comments, Kanye already received criticisms after he wore a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt during his Yeezy Season 9 show at Paris Fashion Week.
