Rapper, record producer and fashion designer, Kanye West has been ‘voted’ the “Antisemite Of The Year” by the American non-profit watchdog group StopAntisemitism.org.
The group made the announcement in a video congratulating Ye for “propagating the most Jew hatred in 2022.”
The video clip cited examples of Kanye West’s offences including the infamous “death con 3” tweet that led to his first Twitter suspension, and highlighted interviews as examples of Ye “referencing antisemitic tropes of Jewish greed and obsessions of money.”
StopAntisemitism.org also used a publicly shared text conversation with P.Diddy as proof of West “falsely insinuating Jews control Hollywood and the media.”
“Kanye uses his celebrity platform to push dangerous antisemitic tropes about Jews and power and he refuses to stop,” the group’s Executive Director Liora Rez told TMZ.
His continuous onslaught of bigoted statements has resulted in horrific antisemitic acts perpetrated by white supremacists, Black Hebrew Israelites, and other fringe groups looking to cause Jews harm.
“Jew hatred is already out of control in the United States, and the last thing we need is a celebrity like Kanye to add fuel to that fire.” she added
Ye, who has been criticized for weeks over his repeated antisemitic remarks, recently doubled down on his love of the bigoted German mass murderer Adolf Hitler during an interview with Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes in Los Angeles.
