A 2018 tweet by comedian Zack Fox has been making the rounds after Kanye West claimed he "likes Hitler."
The controversial rapper, who's also known as Ye, appeared on right-wing commentator Alex Jones' webstreaming show InfoWars on Thursday (Dec. 1).
During his appearance on the show, the musician responded to Jones' attempt to defend him against recent criticism for anti-Semitic comments.
Later, as the cameras cut to a commercial break, he said, "I like Hitler."
West's remarks were heavily criticised on social media, including by Frozen star Josh Gad.
Among the reactions, a screenshot of an old tweet by comedian Zack Fox was also reproduced on the platform.
In a tweet originally posted in September 2018, Fox wrote: "I recommend getting off the Kanye train before it inevitably reaches the 'Hitler was a good guy' stop."

Comedian Felonious Munk reposted Fox's tweet Thursday, adding the caption, "My son told you."
In September 2018, when Fox shared that prophetic warning, West had made a series of unsavoury comments that drew criticism from fans and public figures.
In May 2018, he'd expressed in an interview with TMZ that "slavery is a choice." He'd also come out as a supporter of Donald Trump during the presidential campaign.
Prior to this latest statement, West had been suspended from campaigns with Adidas, GAP and Balenciaga after a series of anti-Semitic remarks.
Following West's appearance on Infowars, it was announced that plans for him to purchase the right-wing "free speech" platform Parler had ended.
Then he was suspended from Twitter after posting a picture with a swastika in the Star of David.
