Mike Tyson Speaks on Kanye West’s Anti-Semitic Comments
In a recent episode of “Hotboxin’ with Mike Tyson,” the former boxing champion was asked about his thoughts on Kanye West’s controversial comments about the Jewish community and his admiration of German dictator Adolf Hitler.
Tyson raised concerns about the negative impact that Kanye’s rhetoric could have on society and the division that it could create among his followers. He questioned the support that Kanye receives from those who believe his comments are acceptable.
“What do they mean when they think what Kanye is saying is right?” Tyson asked. “I hear a lot of people saying he’s right. What’s that about?” He went on to emphasize the power of Kanye’s words and the potential for them to resonate with the wrong groups of people if they continue to be validated.
Tyson compared Kanye to a religious leader, with the potential to wield significant power over his followers. He warned that if one pastor can ignite people, imagine what someone with that level of fame and influence can do.
In conclusion, Tyson highlighted the responsibility that comes with having a platform and the impact that one’s words can have on society.
