Kanye West's most recent highly contested Drink Champs interview has been removed from YouTube.
The official interview was pulled from both the Revolt and Drink Champs YouTube channels on Monday (Oct. 17), two days after the controversial sit-down aired. People on Twitter expressed different feelings regarding the decision to remove the interview.
"Kanye West's interview with Drink Champs was removed after he made comments about Jewish media conglomerates influencing narratives, which is accurate," Someone wrote on Twitter. "Kanye should’ve talked about killing OPPS from 63rd and 64th street… that’s acceptable That would’ve definitely been promoted."

YouTube just removed that @kanyewest drink champs episode. I ain’t advocating for anything he said it’s just crazy y’all okay with people being silenced.— PWW (@PartyWithWolves) October 17, 2022
The decision follows widespread condemnation of Ye's interview, in which he made false claims regarding George Floyd's death and continued to spew anti-Semitic remarks. Ye also made fun of Diddy, who owns Revolt, the company that broadcasts Drink Champs. N.O.R.E. has recently apologized on New York City radio stations Hot 97 and Power 105.1 for his involvement in the Kanye interview being public and for not holding Ye accountable for his outrageous remarks.
"When I look back at the interview, I was like, 'Damn, N.O.R.E., why did you wait two hours to address that?'" N.O.R.E. told Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning show cohosts Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez. "Even though I did feel like I addressed it. I addressed it way too late. The interview way too long. And I'm embarrassed...I can blame this all on Kanye West, I'm not. I want to sit back and say I was irresponsible for letting it go."
