Amid a barrage of antisemitic remarks in recent weeks, Kanye West is now asking to "uncancel" admitted sexual misconduct perpetrator, Louis C.K.

Appearing on Piers Morgan's Uncensored, the rapper shared his admiration for the disgraced comedian, telling Morgan that C.K. was "funnier before he was cancelled because all he would do is the type of joke you can get cancelled on." (In 2018, C.K. reportedly told a rape joke at one of his comeback shows.)

"This is where God is even funnier, here goes like Louis C.K. part two-level," West said during the interview, "because Louis C.K. is the funniest man alive. Uncancel him now."

In the same interview, West also called Morgan a "Karen" for challenging him on recent antisemitic statements, and at one point, saying he doesn't "want to be forgiven by Jewish people" and disclosed that he is "envious" of Jewish culture because "they don't abort their children."

"I'm envious of how they don't shoot each other in the streets and then rap about it. I'm envious of how their families stay together," he said. "I'm envious that they turn their phones off on Friday nights and the family comes together. I'm envious of how they do business together. And I want that for the darker Jews; I want that for Black people. We need that."

Over the weekend, an example of the real-world consequences of West's statements unfolded in Los Angeles, with a group of people on an overpass reportedly holding a demonstration that included nazi salutes and signs that read "Kanye is right about the Jews."

Last week, Balenciaga announced that it would be cutting ties with the controversial artist.
