Even after Atlanta cancelled ‘Kanye West Day’ following Ye’s hurtful anti-semitic comments, Kanye West, the 45-year-old rapper has no guilt. On his appearance on “Piers Morgan Uncensored” on Wednesday (Oct. 19), Ye revealed that he has not to regret in threatening to go “DEFCON 3 on Jewish people.
Absolutely Not Sorry For Jews…
During his appearance on Piers Morgan Uncensored yesterday (Oct. 19), 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, 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.
However, later in the show, Kanye did offer some apology to the people he hurt. Ye stated: “I will say, I’m sorry for the people that I hurt with the DEFCON… the confusion that I caused. I feel like I caused hurt and confusion and I’m sorry for the families that had nothing to do with the trauma that I had been through. Hurt people hurt people – and I was hurt.” Well, that sounds more like a defense mechanism than an apology.
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.
Kanye’s Hate For Jews…
"I will say I'm sorry for the people I hurt…
"Hurt people hurt people, and I was hurt."

If you’re not aware, the Atlanta-born rapper has been 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.
On his recent appearance at “Drink Champs”, Ye told podcasters N.O.R.E. and DJ EFN THAT George Floyd did not die due to being suffocated by a police officer’s knee, instead, he died from fentanyl. Apart from this, he made several anti-semitic comments.
Several Jewish organizations like the Anti-Defamation League are criticising Ye for spitting hatred against the Jews, and refreshing their wounds. On Sunday, the Anti-Defamation League condemned the rapper’s recent comments, and called them “dangerous”, urging readers to identify and combat antisemitism.
Power. Disloyalty. Greed. Deicide. Blood. Denial. Anti-Zionism. All of these are antisemitic tropes that we break down in our #AntisemitismUncovered Guide at https://t.co/1D3LOM8xXQ. Many of these myths have influenced @KanyeWest's comments recently, and it's dangerous. https://t.co/fKQLPFkDR2

“Power. Disloyalty. Greed. Deicide. Blood. Denial. Anti-Zionism. All of these are antisemitic tropes that we break down in our #AntisemitismUncovered Guide,” the Anti-Defamation League stated on Twitter. Not only this, Ye has hit rappers like Comb and Icecube in his anti-semitic rants.
As for Combs, he previously shared a screenshot of a text exchange he said he had with Sean “Diddy” Combs, with the caption “Jesus is Jew.” Ye claimed that Combs was controlled by Jewish people, referencing the long-standing antisemitic conspiracy theory. During a Fox interview, Ye commented on Jared Kushner (Donald Trump’s son-in-law), who is Jewish, and accused him of brokering the Abraham Accords for personal profit.
Well, Ye is unstoppable when it comes to his disturbing behaviour. On ‘Drink Champs’, Ye crossed lines after he blamed “Jewish media” and “Jewish Zionists” for numerous alleged wrongdoings, stating: “Jewish people have owned the Black voice and the Jewish community, especially in the music industry…they’ll take us and milk us till we die”.
