Netflix Decides To Keep Showing Ye’s Doc ‘Jeen-Yuhs’ Despite “Hate Speech” For Jews

Over the weekend, a huge banner was put up on the LA bypass, reading: “Ye is right”. After his anti-semitic rants, several anti-semitic and “white supremacist” groups have instigated hatred against the Jewish community. On one hand, Balenciaga, a French fashion house cut all its ties with Ye, while on the other, Netflix seems okay with keeping Ye’s docuseries, “Jeen-Yuh” despite his hate speech.

Netflix Is Chill With Ye…

While everyone seems to cut ties with Kanye West on morality grounds, it appears like Netflix doesn’t care much. Despite his anti-semitic rants, the streaming giant decided to keep Ye’s “Jeen-Yuhs” documentary, stating they are not in business with Ye, and that this film does not contain an anti-semitic reference. The doc revolves around the ‘Donda’ rapper’s personal life.

Netflix also released a statement saying that they never removed any films involving other high-profile stars once they got entangled with controversies. Well, for Netflix, it’s all about money, for instance, in the case of “Dahmer”, the streaming giant saw huge success amid massive backlash from the families of Jeffrey’s victims.

Celebrities Join Hands Against Ye…

During his appearance on Piers Morgan Uncensored last week, Ye was asked by the host if he regretted threatening to go “DEFCON 3 on Jewish people”. To this, the “Donda” rapper replied: “No, absolutely not.” After this, Morgan asked him if he was aware of his racist comments, and Ye responded, “Yes, that’s why I said it… I fought fire with fire. I’m not here to get hosed down,” taking full responsibility for his recent anti-semitic comments.

If you’re still unaware, 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.

While West’s collaborators like Balenciaga, Vogue and even his legal team have decided to sever ties with the “Heartless” rapper, many celebrities were urging Adidas to cancel him. Well, Adidas also terminated its partnership with Ye today (Oct. 25). After a banner was put up in support of Ye, many celebrities, including his ex-wife have come forward to support the Jewish community.

Kim K. shared an Instagram story recently, stating hate speech is “never OK or excusable.” “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 today voicing against anti-Semitism. “I support my Jewish friends and the Jewish people.”

On Sunday (Oct. 24), 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.” FYI, MRX is reportedly shelving a complete documentary on Ye, showcasing his recent anti-semitic rants. What do you think about Netflix’s move?
