Kanye “Ye” West calls Kyrie Irving and Stephen A. Smith “the real ones” in bizarre Instagram posts

Kanye West, the beleaguered rapper now known as Ye, appeared to support sports commentator Stephen A. Smith and Brooklyn Nets superstar Kyrie Irving in a series of Instagram posts on Sunday.

Ye posted photos of Smith and Irving in later posts, as well as former Republican NFL Senate candidate Herschel Walker.

“These are actually real ones still alive who are no longer afraid. I’m with you. It’s time to build our own. So #redmedia can never control or diminish us again,” Ye wrote in the caption. of Smith’s photo.

On Irving’s photo, Ye wrote, “There are still some real ones here.”

Last week, Smith reversed his original stance on Ye following the business mogul’s anti-Semitic comments. On October 22, he shared his thoughts on Ye on an episode of his “Know Mercy” podcast.

“West continued his rhetoric that the Jewish people are the reason for his bad business and the backlash he received,” Smith said. “I thought brother was worth billions. What do you mean? What bad deals? How many bad deals did you get if you’re worth $7 billion? How many bad deals did you get if you Are you worth if you call yourself the richest black man in american history? How many bad deals have you had? What do you mean? Which side is it on, Kanye? If the Jews are responsible bad business deals that cost you money how do you say that while bragging that you’re the richest black man in american history which one is that either they helped you or you hurt. Did they help you or they hurt you. Pick one. Did they do both? Is that what they did? Really, really?

Smith later added that “when you’re wrong, you’re wrong”.

“When you’re incendiary, you’re incendiary. When you’re callous, you’re callous,” Smith said. “And when you see him oblivious or indifferent to history and the impact it has on any group of people in this world, black, white, Jewish, gentile, it doesn’t matter. Latinos, Asian Americans or whatever, you have to be called to the mat for that, especially when you don’t seem to have a bone of apology in your body And that’s where we’re at with Kanye West so that we’re sitting here right now. Because ladies and gentlemen, excuse my language, but that s— is bad. It’s really, really bad what he did.”

Irving came under fire late last week for sharing an anti-Semitic film on social media. He said he meant “no disrespect” and on Saturday night he was pressed about the decision to promote the film.

He defended his right to publish whatever he believes after his actions were exposed by Nets team owner Joe Tsai and the NBA.

“It’s 2022. History isn’t supposed to be hidden from anyone, and I’m not a divisive person when it comes to religion,” Irving said. “I embrace all walks of life.”

Irving added, “I’m not going to give up anything that I believe in. I’m only going to get stronger because I’m not alone. I have a whole army around me.”


Ever since Ye’s anti-Semitic remarks – tweeting that he would go “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE” – companies have cut ties with his fashion brand Yeezy. He also lost key figures from his sports agency.
