Well, it looks like the end of Kanye West's career is finally here.
Ye has offically taken it to the next level after months of scandal, problematic comments, and blatant anti-semitism.
Appearing on conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' InfoWars programme on Thursday (1 December), West revealed he believes the Nazis did 'good things too' and also praised Adolf Hitler.
Yep, you read that correctly.
He actually said he likes Hitler, the man who oversaw the murder of around six million Jews in WWII.
Fans, rather unsurprisingly, were furious by West's admission, with many claiming the interview was the 'nail in the coffin' for the disgraced rapper.
One user said: "This is the final nail in Kanye’s coffin, right? I mean, it’s gotta be."
Another agreed: "If Kanye hadn’t quite sealed it, that final nail in the coffin has finally sealed with this [interview]. Dude is officially done now."
A third account pointed out that this certainly wasn't on their 2022 bingo card, adding: "Who would’ve guessed letting Kanye speak uninterrupted on Infowars would be the final nail in the coffin."
A fourth just quipped: "Yeah, Kanye's done."
Some on social media are now calling for his music to be removed from streaming services, despite previous resistance to do so from Spotify and Apple Music.
One user made a straight forward appeal to one of the audio services in question: "Hey Spotify, it's time, guys. I loved him too."
They added: "Get his s**t off your platform."
West's comments came after Jones suggested that West had been 'demonised' in the press following a string of antisemitic remarks.
He added that it was unfair for West to be compared to Adolf Hitler or the Nazis.
But with a balaclava completely covering his face, West interrupted Jones and suggested he sees 'good things about Hitler'.
West said: "I love everyone, and Jewish people are not gonna tell me… ‘You can love us, and you can love what we’re doing to you with the contracts, and you can love what we’re pushing with the pornography.’
"But this guy that invented highways, invented the very microphone that I use as a musician—you can’t say out loud that this person ever did anything good, and I’m done with that.
"I’m done with the classifications, every human being has something of value that they brought to the table. Especially Hitler."
After his comments, Jones took back control of the show but before he went to an advert break, West blurted out 'I like Hitler' as the screen faded.
