Who is Chris Paul? Kanye West tweets about NBA player Kim Kardashian

NBA star Chris Paul was called out by Kanye West on Twitter in one of the rapper’s cryptic messages before he was suspended from the social media site for “inciting violence.”

On Thursday, the rapper, who goes by the moniker Ye, made a series of controversial statements, including that he “likes Nazis” and praising Adolf Hitler on multiple occasions during an appearance on Alex Jones’ InfoWars show alongside Nick Fuentes.

Although West had an opportunity to retract his statements, he doubled down on his views after being criticized for his anti-Semitic stance in recent weeks.

However, the 45-year-old rapper didn’t stop there. He took to Twitter to share allegations against his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and to post an image that combined a swastika with Judaism’s symbol, the Star of David.

Just before he was kicked off Twitter, West posted a photo of Chris Paul along with an allegation about Kardashian.
