Kanye West held an impromptu press conference in a paparazzi-packed parking lot late Friday where he refused to walk back or apologize for his antisemitic comments and instead doubled down, reading, from a spreadsheet, a list of names of top Jewish executives of major media and entertainment corporations from Disney to USA Today.
“I didn’t realize that it was antisemitic to say ‘hey you know, I have a Jewish attorney, I have a Jewish record label, I have a Jewish contractor,’” West told the crowd of reporters before reading the definition of antisemitic.
Asked if he would apologize nearly three weeks after he threatened to go “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE” — one of many remarks that cost him a dozen endorsement deals and a large chunk of his personal wealth — the Grammy-winner refused.
But West did, however, apologize for saying “They hit [Floyd] with the fentanyl. If you look, the guy’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that,” suggesting George Floyd’s death was fentanyl-induced and not caused by police brutality.
“I want to apologize. Because God has shown me by what Adidas is doing, by what the media is doing, I know what it feels to have a knee on my neck right now,” West said.

The mother of George Floyd’s daughter announced a $250 million lawsuit against Kanye West last week.
Elsewhere in his 10-minute tirade West said he “had experiences (with Jewish executives) where it felt like I was being teamed up on.” He continued, asserting that in 2016 a “Jewish doctor” misdiagnosed him with Bi-Polar disorder and, he continued “would have had me on medication right now. If I was on medication right now, then one pill could have been swapped out and it would have been Prince or Michael Jackson all over again. But because I didn’t take the medication, I am able to speak to you guys clear of thought and transparently.”
