Kanye West Talks Social Media in ‘Good Morning America’ Interview Clip: Watch

For the first time since Kim Kardashian filed for divorce in February 2021, Kanye West will sit down with a major news network for an on-camera interview.

Ye appears on Good morning America on Thursday (Sept. 22) and discuss co-parenting, politics, ongoing battles with Gap and adidas, Donda Academy, his use of social media and more with ABC News Live Prime anchor Linsey Davis.

In a teaser clip shared to Instagram on Wednesday (September 21), Davis asks the multi-hyphenate if social media is more harmful or beneficial to him. “That’s one of my favorite questions in this interview,” Ye replies. “We could use a car to rush someone to the hospital, or we could use a car and accidentally hit someone while rushing someone to the hospital. It’s all in how we use it.”

West has had a tumultuous relationship with social media over the past year. He was suspended from Instagram for 24 hours in March after violating the platform’s policies on hate speech, bullying and harassment. Much of his page at the time was dedicated to taking pictures Pete Davidson, who dated the rapper’s estranged wife Kardashian for nine months. You wrote that Saturday Night Live comedian, whom he referred to as “Skete,” “is going to get the mother of my kids addicted to drugs. He’s in rehab every two months” and asked SNL writer Dave Sirus to “please help write some more culturally irrelevant jokes for SKETE,” while referencing Davidson’s tattoo of Hillary Clinton, which Ye had posted with the caption “Tramp Stamp. Tramp Pete. Here’s the stamp. “

You also hurled repeated racist slurs at Daily show host Trevor Noah criticized comedian DL Hughley’s style and slammed Kid Cudi for being friends with Davidson. The posts have all since been deleted.

Part of the interview with Ye will be shown Good morning America at 7 ET on ABC. An extended version of the interview is then sent ABC News Live Prime at 19 and again on Nightline. “A Conversation with Ye: Linsey Davis Reporting” will also be available to stream on Hulu starting at 8.30 p.m.
