Kanye West has made plans to meet his new wife’s family in Australia, but his latest anti-Semitic remarks could see him banned from the country altogether.
Ye tied the knot with Bianca Censori in a private ceremony at the top of 2023, but it appears the couple has yet to file a marriage certificate to make it legal. Regardless, the Yeezy mogul reportedly had plans to visit Censori’s family in Melbourne, but according to TMZAustralia’s Education Minister Jason Clare suggested they could potentially reject Ye.
Jason Clare spoke to a local channel Nine Network TV and clearly stated that if Kanye applies for a visa, he will face the same vetting process as other applicants. Australia has a long history of rejecting people with anti-Semitic beliefs.
“I would expect that if he applied, he would have to go through the same process and answer the same questions,” Clare said.
You have been relentless criticized for months over his repeated anti-Semitic commentsand despite pushback and financial loss he has suffered, has repeatedly redoubled his love for the great German mass murderer Hitler. In his latest interview with Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes in Los Angeles, he demanded that the Jewish people forgive Hitler and “let it go”.
Australian Jewish groups have already called for Ye to be banned from the country. Executive Council of Australian Jewry co-chief Peter Wertheim told officials on Tuesday (January 24) (via Sky News): “We have argued that this particular individual does not meet the character test and that it would be in the national interest not to grant him a visa, and we set out our reasons in some detail.”
Andrew Giles, Australia’s immigration minister, will have the final say on whether Ye enters the country.
Kanye and Bianca Censori were last spotted at the Malibu restaurant along with his daughter North West, potentially the first meeting between Censori and one of Ye’s children. It was the Chicago rap mogul first seen with Censori on a dinner date at the Waldorf Astoria in Los Angeles on January 9, which came days later Ye was reportedly attending a church service following rumors that he was missing.
“[Kim Kardashian] don’t care either way and don’t think about it,” a source said Hollywood life of Ye’s new relationship. “Kim doesn’t care what he does with his romantic life as long as he fulfills his duties as a father to their children.”
Ye and Kim Kardashian finalized their divorce last November after settling the last of their custody and property issues in court.
