Kanye West Says George Floyd’s Death Was Caused by Fentanyl, Gets Backlash Online

Kanye West, now known as Ye, has been in the news and social media platforms for all the wrong reasons lately. He was recently invited to the NORE and DJ EFN podcast called Drink Champs. While speaking on the podcast, he explained that George Floyd died from fentanyl and the police officer’s knee was not on his neck. “If you look at it, the guy’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that,” he says.

It all started when there were discussions about Candace Owens’ documentary The Greatest Lie Ever Sold: George Floyd and the Rise of BLM, which is based on Black Lives Matter. The documentary talks about Floyd’s death at the hands of former White Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin.

The video has since gone viral and Kanye has received a lot of criticism for his comments. “It is sad that now because of Kanye West, people are having to relive the murder of George Floyd to prove this man wrong. It was enough to see it in real time. Why can’t you all respect the dead and let this man rest in peace,” wrote one Twitter user. Another person wrote: “Kanye West is spreading reprehensible lies about George Floyd’s death. Kanye West is a disgrace. “If you see, the guy’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that.”

Meanwhile, people used to find his Donda Academy, as Twitter pundits would call it, a little “sus.” It’s a private Christian school in California and is named after Ye’s late mother, Donda, whose name also inspired two of the rapper’s album titles. According to the New York Post, the school charges $15,000 a year, has celebrity guests, and also offers insider connections to Kanye’s fashion and music companies

Parents must sign NDAs, or non-disclosure agreements, sources told Rolling Stone. The school has a very small cohort of students and teachers and, to top it off, is not accredited. This calls into question the credits and diplomas earned by students and whether these will be valid in colleges.

In addition, the school’s principal and chief executive, Brianne Campbell, has never previously held a formal position as an educator. Currently, a video of students singing “Good morning, Donda” is going viral on Twitter, making people uncomfortable.
