If you are too troubled by “itis” to follow the latest developments in Kanye West’s presidential bidYou might have missed the rapper-turned-a series of official (unofficial) campaign videos of the rapper that were released on Thanksgiving Day.
One of Ye’s campaign videos is a collage of celebrities and media personalities who have publicly criticized him in recent months, including an actress. Vivica A Fox. In the clip featuring Fox, the actor and “Fox Soul” host spoke out against West and encouraged others to boycott him. This criticism arose from a DrinkChamps interview where he falsely claimed that George Floyd was not killed by a lack of oxygen, but by fentanyl.
“Yo, Kanye. If you are. And I mean it with everything in me,” Fox is heard saying in the video. “You have to abolish him. And I know we’re not trying to be in cancel culture but we have to hit him in his pockets now. Because, obviously, he doesn’t care about African American culture.”
It appears that the episode “Fox Soul” was bugged on the same day Adidas He froze Ye’s bank accounts and then sued the rapper for $275 million. While he didn’t provide any context or comment within the campaign video as to why he was included, that didn’t stop Fox from responding.
“Now, if you’re going to use a video of me, it has to be accurate!” “Two can play that game,” a star tweeted. “I wasn’t happy with you [for] Vivica A. Fox wrote that George Floyd was not killed, but thanks 4 for watching my @foxsoultv show #CocktailsWithQueens & know 2 Can Play that game.
As Yi returns to the political arena, we see him siding with controversial far-right figures such as Nick Fuentes and Milo Liannopolis. The campaign video comes after Yi’s recent visit to Mar-a-Lago where he asked former President Trump to be his running mate in 2024.
