Kanye West took to Twitter on Dec. 1, 2022, to accuse Chris Paul of allegedly having an affair with Kim Kardashian.
Kanye West has recently garnered a reputation for spewing outlandish, hateful rhetoric and bullying folks on social media. Kanye recently accused Chris and his ex-wife Kim Kardashian of having an affair, moments before supporting Balenciaga amid the brand’s scandal.
In the late hours of Dec. 1, 2022, Kanye shared a now-deleted tweet that reads, “Let’s break one last window before we get out of here … I caught this guy with Kim” (per The Shade Room). The tweet also included a picture of Chris on the court.
Of course, social media was set ablaze by the accusations, with many people wondering why Chris had to catch a stray in Kanye’s latest rant. On the flip side, Black Twitter has been on one with jokes and memes about the allegations. And of course, some folks believe that Kanye tweeted that nonsense to deflect from his comments about Adolf Hitler.
Interestingly, Chris and Kim have been mum on the topic since the rumor made its rounds online. Many fans believe that Chris may be the one to deny the rumor, with Kim remaining silent. That said, the general consensus is that Kanye is just simply saying outlandish things for shock value.
We can all agree that spreading vicious rumors can adversely impact everyone involved. However, since Kanye’s Twitter account has since been suspended, hopefully, the rumors and harmful speech will cease.
