On video: Kanye West launches his presidential campaign (Photo: Reuters)
Walla's Man of the Year!
Before you attack her as if she were
, let her explain: the troubled rapper unleashed some unforgivable statements and behaviors on the world.
In fact, he is consul at record speed and it is doubtful that anyone will take him seriously in the future.
Above West's scandals hovers a cloud that has not been talked about enough and concerns his mental state.
Those who have dealt with a friend, relative or acquaintance dealing with bipolar disorder, know how it manifests itself.
He knows that when the mania passes, the depression comes and is mostly made up of guilt.
Kanye West is easy to hate, hard to pity the man and impossible to ignore.
So just before we start a new year (and if God wills an adequate medication), here are West's biggest scandals of the year:
Kanye West VS Pete Davidson

West's anti-Semitic remarks slightly overshadowed the rapper's initial, and perhaps biggest, victim.
's whole sin
was that he had a relationship with
, West's ex-wife.
This was enough for the gates of hell to be opened in the form of defamatory posts, derogatory names, disturbing messages and an actual threat in the music video that West released, in which his character butts the head of another character who looks exactly like the young comedian.
What appeared to be (another) tantrum by the rapper brought real anxiety into the life of the actor, who sought mental health treatment following the words and actions he suffered.
Did you hear, Kenya?
There is no shame in asking for help.

Kanye West VS Kim Kardashian

Let's start by saying that West came out against Kardashian and her family members even when the two were married.
As mentioned, this is not his first manic attack, and previously he wrote on his Twitter account that she and her mother,
, wanted to forcibly hospitalize him and kidnap him to a closed institution.
On another occasion, he tearfully told that Kardashian considered having an abortion when she was pregnant with their first daughter.
She also stood by him when he decided to run for the presidency of the United States, but after the two broke up his behavior escalated.
While he was hurling threats and insults at Davidson, whom she had been dating for several months, he sent Kim a truck full of roses.
On another occasion, he spoke of her preventing him from meeting their shared children.
In addition, he exposed the children's educational institutions, which required increased security for them.
To Kardashian's credit, she was able to deal with nobility and restraint with the harsh accusations, and when she chose to respond, she did so in a matter-of-fact way that proved who the responsible adult in the family is.
Kanye West VS Benjamin Netanyahu

Well, West didn't *really* open a front against the future prime minister, but I will mention him while making a particularly bad joke, peppered with anti-Semitic remarks.
At the beginning of the month, Kanye was a guest on the show of Alex Jones, an extreme right-wing man who supports white supremacy.
In the infamous interview, Kanye said that he "sees good things in Hitler" and said that he had heard of
and thought he had a funny name.
He added "I heard he is a brutal killer, so I could die because of what I said here."
West pulled out a stick, pretended to be Netanyahu and said "I'm going to kill you and take your children away from you. We control the history books, we control the banks and we always kill people."
Kanye West VS the Jewish people
Hate in America:
Yesterday, the head of an antisemitic and white supremacist group (and his supporters) dropped banners over the 405 in Los Angeles.
One banner read, "Kanye is right about the Jews."

And in direct continuation of the anti-Semitic statements associated with Netanyahu, this seems to be the most serious feature of West's current bout of mania.
In recent months he has released a long and unapologetic series of anti-Semitic statements to the world.
Many Hollywood and local stars came out against him, and the authorities in the United States expressed sincere concern about his words, which may lead to real harm to the Jews.
Apart from deep contempt, Kanye's words cost him a lot of money: all the companies that had business relationships with him, including Adidas, cut ties with him and announced that they would not work with him again.
His fortune dropped, according to various estimates, from four billion dollars to only 900 million, and he was blocked from every social network that exists.
Where was he invited?
For dinner with
, of course.

After making enemies in ethnically, gender, and politically diverse communities, West decided he needed at least one athletic rival.
This time it is an attack that took place on his Twitter account, and the victim was NBA star
According to West's tweet, he caught Chris having an affair with Kim Kardashian while they were married.
Paul, a married father of two, did not have to report the incident because West's Twitter account was suspended.
No, not because of the stormy romance, but because of a picture of a swastika inside a Star of David that he tweeted.
