  • In Thursday night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" opening monologue, Jimmy Kimmel called out Kanye West.
  • "We have a Black white supremacist running around…" Kimmel said in response to West's anti-Semitic comments.

Late night host Jimmy Kimmel took aim at Kanye West during Thursday night's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" opening monologue.

In an interview with alt-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, West made the claim that "every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler."

In response, Kimmel called out West's anti-Semitism during his late-night monologue. "I think he's wearing the wrong color hood," the host said, commenting on his black hoodie and right-wing ties.

"I haven't seen anything like this," he added. "We have a Black white supremacist running around… Let's imagine this was another pop star. Imagine if it was Ariana Grande saying this stuff. We'd load her into a cannon and fire her into the ocean, right? But Kanye seems to get crazier every day, and he still has fans. And you know an interview's gone off the rails when you're watching it thinking, 'Gee, I hope Alex Jones can talk some sense into this guy.'"

Kimmel went on to comment on West's claims that Hitler "invented the microphone."


"Kanye seems to be the first person claiming Hitler invented the microphone," he said. "I think he might be referencing the old myth that Nazis invented the microwave oven… but that's not a microphone."

West has been under fire recently for multiple anti-semitic tweets ranging from an image of a swastika superimposed over the Star of David to saying that he would go "death con 3" on Jewish people.

In 2018, West appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" to defend his support of then-president Donald Trump and his claim that slavery "sounds like a choice."

During the episode, Kimmel asked West about his infamous comment that "George Bush doesn't care about Black people," when Hurricane Katrina hit Louisiana in 2005. "What makes you think that Donald Trump does – or any people at all?" Kimmel questioned.

After a long pause from West, the show cut to a commercial break. After the show, West took to Twitter to claim that he "wasn't stumped" and "wasn't given the chance to answer the question," Insider reported.
