The Shop’ pulls episode featuring Kanye West

An upcoming episode of the YouTube talk show The Shop: Uninterrupted has been scrapped after Kanye West allegedly used “hate speech and extremely dangerous stereotypes” in an interview.

The move came as it emerged the star had shared a series of comments based on racist conspiracy theories in a separate interview with Fox News.

Fox removed those segments before broadcast, but the footage was leaked to technology website Motherboard.

West has not commented on either case.

The star, who is legally known as Ye, was previously suspended from Instagram and Twitter for making anti-Semitic comments.

Those posts came in response to a backlash against his show at Paris Fashion Week, where he wore a t-shirt carrying the slogan “White Lives Matter”.

The Anti-Defamation League has called the phrase “hate speech” and attributed it to white supremacists, who began using it in 2015 in response to the Black Lives Matter movement.
