Kanye West’s interview on LeBron James’ The Shop won’t see the light of day after recent comments. The news was announced yesterday by SpringHill CEO and co-host of The Shop Maverick Carter.

“Yesterday we taped an episode of The Shop with Kanye West,” Carter told Andscape. The outlet also notes that LeBron wasn’t present at the taping for the episode.

Carter notes that though he “believed he [West] was capable of a respectful discussion,” it became apparent that Kanye wanted to use The Shop to “reiterate more hate speech and extremely dangerous stereotypes.” Carter did not specify exactly what was said during the taping.

However, production sources told Andscape that Ye “doubled down on his recent anti-Semitic remarks” in the episode. The episode also featured shoe designer Salehe Bembury, as well as West’s “Amazing” partner Jeezy.

Over the weekend, the rapper began making anti-Semitic comments while beefing with Diddy. He then took his comments to Twitter after Instagram suspended his account. A tweet where Kanye threatened to go “Death con 3″ on Jewish people was later deleted by the platform.

On Tuesday, unaired footage from West’s controversial interview with Tucker Carlson emerged. In it, he makes more antisemitic comments while addressing the issue of the”fake children” who were placed in his home.

Jewish advocacy groups have accused Kanye of reinforcing anti-Semitic stereotypes. The American Jewish Committee called out his “incoherent rants laden with racist and antisemitic undertones made on the country’s top cable news program.”

Kanye’s recent controversies

Over the past week, West has attracted attention for unveiling a shirt with the controversial slogan “White Lives Matter” at his fashion show in Paris. After receiving criticism from Vogue editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, West launched abusive attacks on her from social media. His behavior drew criticism from around the fashion world.

In recent days, West’s behavior has prompted his ex-wife Kim Kardashian to pay for extra security at their children’s school. This came after West made social media posts that revealed the location of the school.
