Kanye West has been accused of openly praising Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party.

Former employees of the disgraced rapper-turned-fashion designer are speaking up about West’s anti-Semitic remarks made years before 2022.

According to a new report from NBC News, West went as far as to pay a former employee “hush money” who alleged that he had used anti-Semitic language in the workplace. West has denied the claims.

Six additional employees, who worked with West, claim they witnessed him in professional settings over the last five years praise Hitler and/or mention conspiracy theories about Jewish people.

Per the outlet, three of them are former employees or collaborators. They recalled multiple instances of their boss using anti-Semitic language and specifically referenced a 2018 interview West did at TMZ.

It appears the “Donda” rapper has been using this kind of language much longer than his recent Twitter outbursts and national TV interviews.

The only employee to speak out against West’s anit-Semitism was Ryder Ripps, who worked on and off with him from 2014 to 2018.

Ripps recalled multiple times when West spoke positively about Hitler and the Nazis or mentioned anti-Jewish conspiracies.

These remarks were reportedly made during meetings in the summer and fall. Of 2018.

Ripps himself is Jewish and said he hit back at West’s comments at the time, but didn’t deem them “that dangerous.”

However, in light of West’s recent “deathcon 3 on Jewish People” tweet and his multiple TV interviews spreading Jewish hate, Ripps believes West’s remarks are “dangerous and disgusting and actually violent.”

“With this pattern that’s happening and with the doubling and tripling down of all this, it’s pretty obvious that this is some kind of disgusting, hate-filled, strange Nazi obsession,” Ripps said.

Last week, CNN reported that a business executive who worked with West accused him of creating a hostile work environment through an “obsession” with Hitler. This colleague also received a settlement, aka “hush money.”

The Blast recently reported that multiple staffers at West’s Donda Academy are jumping ship and quitting.

According to the New York Post, several teachers at Donda Academy quit in protest over the rapper’s erratic behavior and anti-Semitic remarks.

Ye’s friend, Malik Yusef, told The Post, “Staff members of the Jewish faith were lost.”

Yusef previously described himself as an “administrator, administering information to young, growing minds.”

“I know we had a couple people of the Jewish faith who worked there [who] basically recused or resigned in light of public pressure from, I am sure, friends and family. You got to go with your team when your family is saying it’s not possible to stay there,” Yusef said. “What Kanye said was ridiculous.”

When asked about West’s anti-Jewish slurs and outbursts on social media and national television, Yusef said, “Critical thinking is what Donda is about, and I don’t think Kanye applied critical thinking.”
