Kanye West Wonders How Conspiracy Peddler Tucker Carlson Is Taking His Theories

The "Donda" artist concocted a theory about the Uvalde, Texas, school shooting during an interview with the Fox News host.

Musician and fashion designer Kanye West continued his streak of controversy this week by making a bizarre claim about the Uvalde, Texas, school massacre to Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

West, who defended the shirts’ creation and attacked his ex-wife Kim Kardashian in the first part of the interview, used his extended time with Carlson to push a conspiracy theory about the May 24 school shooting that left 19 students and two teachers dead.

In an unfounded conspiracy theory, the “Donda” artist ― who changed his name to Ye last year ― claimed he felt as if executives of the Gap clothing chain knew about the school shooting “before it even happened.”

West ended his Yeezy Gap partnership with the brand in September, claiming there was a “breach of contract.”

West later clarified to Carlson, who is known for pushing conspiracy theories himself on his Fox News program, that he is “not” saying executives knew about the massacre beforehand and claimed there was a coordinated message about the shooting.

“Have I reached Alex Jones territory yet?” West asked Carlson.

“No, I think you’re telling the truth,” Carlson replied with a smile.
