Did Zachary Fox predict West’s future? Kanye West went from being a billionaire to a banned artist in a matter of months. The singer has been making anti-Semitic comments and, instead of retracting them, he is doubling down on them through interviews and social media. His infamous opinions have led him to lose a lot of fans, but the artist remains unaffected.
No one could have predicted that Ye, who is known for his music, would be known for his bold comments. As it turns out, comedian Zachary Fox predicted the artist’s statements years before they actually happened.
What did Zachary Fox predict about Kanye West and his anti-Semitic opinions?
Kanye West is known for making controversial statements, but he managed to break that barrier by refusing to admit the degree of damage caused by the holocaust. A Twitter user recently posted an old tweet by the Abbott Elementary actor and captioned it, “This dude knew where Kanye West was headed back in 2018 and nobody listened.” The tweet said, “highly recommend getting off the Kanye train before it inevitably reaches the ‘Hitler was a good guy’ stop “ It was posted on 30th of September, 2010. Back then, people must have taken it as a joke, but nobody would have expected it to be true.
Hitler is placed on a pedestal, someone we measure all bad people up to. I'm sure we can find equally bad ones or worse. Hitler is not the epitome of evil. People love to hate him. Get real people, the world is bigger than that, and there will come worse people along.

It also sparked debate amongst fans, with some thinking that Hitler was not the epitome of evil, and that people who are much worse exist in the world. One user posted a collage of all previous articles that showed signs of Ye’s increasing support for the Nazi leader.
I use to tell people, but they didn't want to hear it. Now that he's out with it, they have to face it or shut up. Long history there. pic.twitter.com/yNNVZPvAR9

He said he “likes hitler” and that “theres a lot of great things about hitler”. Trying to paint hitler in any form of positive light is apalling and disturbing. But its pointless explaining that to you because you spend all day on twitter RTing anything that fits your narrative.

It was very obvious If you've encountered people like him before

imagine if he said the holocaust was a choice, the reaction would have been different then. freedom of speach has a limit and the limit is when you start talking about certain groups.

While some fans were also quick to defend the Gold Digger singer, saying that Ye liking Hitler does not mean he is a good guy, he simply looked at the Nazi leader from a different perspective.
Regardless of the right side, his comments have given life to a debate over a very controversial topic, and the fear of normalizing his opinions is real. What do you make of Ye’s opinions? Give your thoughts in the comments.
