Kanye West is a famous American rapper, songwriter, record producer, and fashion designer. 

The Canadian streamer strongly objected to viewers who repeatedly used the emoji in comments. Fans, according to xQc, admire art from people who have committed far more horrible crimes than Kanye’s recent anti-Semitic statements.

Responding to the conversation saying, “Imma keep it a buck, keep it a buck, songs from artists doing hate speech, monkaLaugh skip song, songs from actual murderer or people who did actual murder crimes.”
