Ye has had a few bizarre, hate-speech-filled rants lately—including an appearance on InfoWars where he praised Hitler and seemingly made even Alex Jones uncomfortable.

That trend definitely hadn't changed by the time he had a private Q&A with Wack100 this Saturday on audio-only platform Clubhouse, with participants charged a $20 entry fee.

Ye started off with an Obama conspiracy theory…

"Everybody know Obama not from Chicago."

…before continuing, claiming beloved Civil Rights icon Rosa Parks was "a plant."

"Since 1948, all of these movements… I know woke’s going to be mad at me. But, all of these heroes, man."
"It’s only one, that’s Jesus Christ."
"You’re gonna find out something about MLK, something about JFK, something about Malcolm, Rosa Parks."
"We know Rosa Parks was a plant."

And of course it didn't take him long to get around to the usual antisemitism:

"They use these media outlets to outrage. Outrage is an economy. the trauma economy."
"What death are we gonna promote this week? It ain’t like 14 people ain’t getting killed every week in Chicago."
"But no, we’re going to publicize this on our—I’m not gonna say whose platform it is … It was the Jews."

Ye was subsequently banned by Clubhouse.

You can listen to the audio below:

People were entirely unsurprised Ye had been banned from another platform for hate speech, given that has definitely been a theme lately.

Many were disgusted, even if not surprised by Ye's actions.

A few people had something to say about those supporting Ye as well.

According to The Wrap, Clubhouse chose to shut down the conversation and remove Ye's rant from the platform about 50 minutes in for violating it's policies on hate speech, according to a company spokesperson.

"We took action to shut down a conversation on Saturday because it violated our policies. We also suspended those who violated the policies."
"There’s absolutely no place for bullying, hate speech or abuse on our platform as explicitly stated in our Community Guidelines and Terms of Service."

He was also suspended from the platform, continuing a trend that also saw him suspended from Twitter and Instagram for his words and actions.
