Kanye West could be barred from entering Australia to meet his new wife’s family due to his praise for Hitler and his anti-Semitic diatribes, government officials said Wednesday.
The rapper is reportedly planning to fly along Bianca censors next week to her hometown of Melbourne for the meeting with her clan.
As we first reported, the bunch tied the knot in a private ceremony earlier this month without submitting a marriage certificate. It’s not clear if Kanye got a visa for the rumored trip or even applied for one.
In any case, the Australian Minister of Education, Jason Clare, says that if Kanye applies for a visa, it may be rejected. The Land Down Under has a history of rejecting people with anti-Semitic beliefs.
Clare told Nine Network TV… “I expect if he signs up he has to go through the same process and answer the same questions” as anyone who has expressed such views.
Kanye West travels across the country with white nationalist Nick Fuentes
As you know… Kanye recently ran a bizarre anti-Jewish campaign, praising it Hitler and Nazis. He hung out with a notorious white nationalist Nick Fuentes.
Ye was suspended from Twitter after posting an image of a swastika merged with the Star of David. Kanye also went live on air with alt-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones for his show ‘Infowars’. Kanye said, among other things, “I love Hitler.”
Given his rhetoric, it appears Kanye is in an uphill battle with Australian Jewish groups, who have already called for him to be denied entry pending a visa application.
Co-Chief of the Executive Council of Australian Jewry Peter Wertheim told 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 have set out our reasons in detail.”
minister of immigration Andrew Gilles will make the final decision on whether or not to allow Kanye into the country, if the time comes.
