Ozzy Osbourne Blasts 'Antisemite' Kanye West for Unauthorized Black Sabbath Sample.

Ozzy Osbourne blasted Kanye West on social media on Friday, claiming the rapper used a recording of a Black Sabbath song without Osbourne’s permission and against his will.

“Kanye West asked permission to sample a section of a 1983 live performance of ‘Iron Man’ from the Us Festival without vocals & was refused permission because he is an antisemite and has caused untold heartache to many,” the singer wrote in capital letters. “He went ahead and used the sample anyway at his album listening party last night. I want no association with this man!”

:snip:

Over the past year, West has come under fire numerous times for his repetition and promotion of antisemitic tropes, including a moment in 2022 when he said he would go “death con 3” on “Jewish people.” He eventually apologized on Instagram with a statement written in Hebrew, asking for forgiveness, but he has nevertheless continued to embrace antisemitic ideology, including wearing a T-shirt for the Norwegian metal musician Burzum, who has been fined for antisemitism, and modeling some of Vultures artwork in a way that evokes Burzum’s cover art.

:snip:

Osbourne’s wife and manager, Sharon, is of Jewish descent. “We were brought up in basically a Jewish household,” she told The Jewish Chronicle last month. “My family, my father’s family, my aunt, my cousins, are all Jewish. And observant Jews who practice and love their religion. So Judaism is the only religion I have, and the only one with which I feel comfortable.”

Bless Ozzy; he just knows who he is and is fine with it. Sharon freaks me out with some of her ways but hey, not my problem. Kanye, now, that guy’s—I honestly don’t know what. I hear he’s unmedicated bipolar but the shape of the mania is telling.

Kanye's aggressively inappropriate anti-social behavior and irrational delusions are way beyond bi-polar/manic and strike me as distinctly schizoid.

He’s a cipher, though. I truly liked his earliest work. His mother’s death seems to have unmoored him somehow. The whole Jesus persona I think is a more serious ideation than people think, but I’ll readily admit I am just going off of what I see in very limited contexts. There are big pieces of the puzzle missing. Given he seems to have been reasonably stable with the Kardashians and has a relationship with his daughter, I wonder about med compliance. As with most folks who have those issues, those who can influence them to comply and not try to ride the high are vital. But boy can that be a tough task.

I'm pretty certain that Ozzy knows a small-minded jerk when he see's one.
