Ye Continues to Disappoint, But Not Surprise

FEC documents reveal Kanye West's presidential campaign to have provided employment to white nationalists Nick Fuentes and Milo Yiannopoulos


Months following his anti-semititic remarks, Kanye West finds himself to be a topic of public conversation yet again after documents from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) reveal his presidential campaign to have paid tens of thousands to employ white supremacists last year. According to FEC filings acquired by TMZ (, Ye had paid over $50k to alt-right personality Milo Yiannopoulos, specifically $40k for "Campaign Wrap-Up Services" and almost $10k for "Domain Services".

The campaign also paid nearly $15k in travels costs to Holocaust-denier and white nationalist Nick Fuentes, who also worked on the campaign. Fuentes was seen with Ye throughout the rapper's media-run last fall, including when West explicitly praised Hitler on the Infowars podcast. Yiannopoulos would be later fired from the campaign following the podcast episode.

West's anti-semitic comments, both on the Infowars show as well as on social media, lead to the controversial-artist being slammed across the entertainment industry and the internet by celebrities, fans, and sponsored-companies alike. Former collaborators and fellow artists Questlove and Jamie Foxx were among the many who shamed Ye for his bigoted-remarks, and businesses like Balenciaga and Adidas have since cut ties the rapper. West was also banned from Twitter and Instagram.
