Van Lathan Claims Kanye West Praised Hitler During 2018 Interview

Media Take Out Staff |

In his infamous 2018 interview with Kanye West, Van Lathan claims the rapper praised Hitler and the Nazis.

Lathan worked for TMZ at the time of the interview. After Ye’s recent anti-semitic rant, he says he was not shocked.

He made the shocking claims about Ye on his podcast. “I mean, I was taken aback because that type of anti-Semitic talk is disgusting. But as far as him, I knew that that was in him because when came to TMZ, he said that stuff and they took it out of the interview.”

Lathan added, “If you look at what I said at TMZ, it goes from me saying like, ‘Hey Kanye, there’s real-life, real-world implication to everything that you just said there.’ What I say after that—if I can remember, it’s been a long time—was, ’12 million people actually died because of Nazism and Hitler and all of that stuff,’ and then I move on to talk about what he said about slavery,” Lathan continued. 

“The reason they took it out is because it wouldn’t have made sense unless they kept in Kanye saying he loved Hitler and the Nazis, which he said when he was at TMZ. He said something like, ‘I love Hitler, I love Nazis.’ Something to that effect.”
