Noticed a huge banner on the LA overpass, reading: “Ye is right”? As a result of Ye’s hate speech, several anti-semitic groups have already started instigating violence. On the other hand, Kanye West is suffering the consequences of his anti-semitic remarks. Many celebrities have come forward with IG stories that read: “I stand with my Jew friends”.
As Balenciaga cuts its ties with the 45-year-old rapper, his ex-wife Kim Kardashian has also come forward and slammed Ye for his hate speech, stating it’s “never OK or excusable”. Her sister Khloe, Kendall, Kylie and mother, Kris also joined hands to finally speak against Ye.
A Terrible Violence On The Jews…
Kim Kardashian has finally spoken up against Ye’s “anti-semitic” rants. The SKIMS founder wrote on her Instagram story, “I stand together with the Jewish community and call on the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end.”
Besides this, her sisters, Khloe, Kendall, Kylie and mother, Kris also shared similar statements voicing against anti-Semitism. “I support my Jewish friends and the Jewish people,” they shared in posts on Monday.
Kim Kardashian, who recently launched a podcast on Criminal Justice Reforms, also issued a statement on Twitter, wherein she condemned “hate speech” and called for the “hateful rhetoric” to end. “Hate speech is never OK or excusable,” Kardashian tweeted. “I stand together with the Jewish community and call on the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end.”
Celebrities Join Hands Against Ye…
On his appearance on “Piers Morgan Uncensored” last week, Ye revealed that he has not to regret in threatening to go “DEFCON 3 on Jewish people. As a result, Balenciaga gave a befitting response to the rapper by ending its business relationship with Ye.
Following Ye’s controversies, ranging from “White Lives Matter” to his recent anti-semitic remarks, the French fashion house announced on Friday (Oct. 21) that it has severed its ties with the 45-year-old rapper. Its parent company, Kering released a statement, saying, “Balenciaga has no longer any relationship nor any plans for future projects related to this artist.”
Apart from this, the Atlanta-born rapper was cancelled by Atlanta, following his comments about George Floyd’s death and anti-Semitic tweets. Natalyn Archibong, former Atlanta city councilwoman who honored Ye last year, declared July 22nd as the “Kanye West Day”, and has distanced herself from the 45-year-old rapper.
If you’re not aware, Kanye tweeted on Oct. 8: “I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE. The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti-Semitic because black people are actually Jews also You guys have toyed with me and tried to blackball anyone who opposes your agenda.” His Twitter and Instagram were suspended during that week.
Shockingly, over the weekend, an antisemitic and white supremacist group put up a huge banner above an LA overpass, which reads, “Kanye is right about the Jews”. Not only this but the group called Goyim Defense League was also captured in a photo, raising their arms in a Nazi salute above the banners.
Since then, many celebrities have come forward to show their support for Jews following Kanye’s hate speech and instigating violence against the community. On Sunday, the Good American founder reposted Jessica Seinfeld’s statement to her Instagram story: If you don’t know what to say, you can just say this in your feed,” alongside a graphic with the words “I support my Jewish friends and the Jewish people.”
Previously, several Jewish organizations like the Anti-Defamation League are criticising Ye for spitting hatred against the Jews and refreshing their wounds. Previously, the Anti-Defamation League condemned the rapper’s recent comments, and called them “dangerous”, urging readers to identify and combat antisemitism. As for the Kardashian, Ye must be already prepared to fire back with another social media rant.
