The rapper Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) continued to double down on anti-Semitic rhetoric, in new remarks that promote canards about Jewish control over the media and the medical profession.

“It was a Jewish doctor that diagnosed me of having a disorder that would’ve had me on medication right now,” Ye, who was originally diagnosed with bipolar disorder after being hospitalized for a psychiatric emergency in 2016, said in a video circulated on Twitter. “At a time like this, if I was on medication right now, then one pill could’ve been swapped out, and it would be Michael Jackson and Prince all over again. But because I didn’t take the misdiagnosis, and I didn’t take the medication, I’m able to speak to you guys clear of thought and transparently.” (Jackson and Prince both died of overdose incidents.)

Ye proceeded to read a long list of broadcast production studios as well as print and online media outlets on his phone, before noting that the executives at all of those companies are Jewish.

The anti-Semitism scandal surrounding the musician began when he tweeted that he was “going death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.”

Forbes reported that Ye’s net worth dropped from $2 billion to $400 million after the German sporting goods giant Adidas ended its “Yeezy” brand partnership with the rapper. The film and television studio MRC halted plans to distribute its recently completed Kanye West-themed documentary, while professional athletes Jaylen Brown and Aaron Donald left Ye’s agency, Donda Sports, over his anti-Semitic remarks. 

Meanwhile, CNN reported that Ye had wanted to name his 2018 album after Adolf Hitler.
