Kanye West will be having an on-camera interview for the first time with a major news network since Kim Kardashian demanded a divorce in February 2021. In an interview with ABC News Live Prime anchor Linsey Davis, Ye will appear on Good Morning America on Thursday to talk about co-parenting, politics, on-going legal disputes with Gap and Adidas, Donda Academy, his usage of social media, and more.
Davis queries the multi-hyphenate on whether social media is more good or damaging to him in a preview film posted to Instagram on Wednesday. “That’s one of my favorite questions of this interview,” Ye responds. “We could use a car to rush somebody to the hospital, or we could use a car and accidentally hit somebody while we’re rushing somebody to the hospital. It all in how we use it.”
Over the past year, West’s relationship with social media has been rocky. Following a violation of Instagram’s hate speech, bullying, and harassment policies in March, he was subject to a 24-hour suspension. At 7 a.m. on ABC, a segment of the Ye interview will air on Good Morning America.
The interview will then be broadcast in its entirety on ABC News Live Prime at 7 p.m. and again on Nightline. Starting at 8:30 p.m., “A Conversation with Ye: Linsey Davis Reporting” will also be streamable on Hulu.
