According to a press report, Kanye West’s appearance on LeBron James’ talk program “The Shop” won’t air because of the musician’s “dangerous” comments.
According to Andscape, the decision was made public on Tuesday by Maverick Carter, CEO of SpringHill Company and James’ co-producer of the show.
“Yesterday we taped an episode of ‘The Shop’ with Kanye West. Kanye was booked weeks ago and, after talking to Kanye directly the day before we taped, I believed he was capable of a respectful discussion and he was ready to address all his recent comments,” he remarked.
He continued,“Unfortunately, he used ‘The Shop’ to reiterate more hate speech and extremely dangerous stereotypes.”
‘We have made the decision not to air this episode or any of Kanye’s remarks. While The Shop embraces thoughtful discourse and differing opinions, we have zero tolerance for hate speech of any kind and will never allow our channels to be used to promote hate,”
he stated. “I take full responsibility for believing Kanye wanted a different conversation and apologize to our guests and crew. Hate speech should never have an audience,”
According to sources Andscape did not name, West made anti-Semitic slurs while being recorded.
West has attracted backlash for other recent remarks.
