Black Jewish Entertainment Alliance and Anti-Defamation League Both Refute Kanye West Over Antisemitic Tweets

Kanye west- Twitter ban

Twitter confirmed Kayne West’s second social media exile, stating his account was suspended for breaking the platform’s regulations.

During the evening on Saturday, West posted a tweet in which he threatened to inflict “death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.

“I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” he wrote. “The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.”

Twitter’s decision comes only one day after Meta barred West from using his Instagram account. According to their policy breach standards, the parent company of Instagram and Facebook is presently restricting West from uploading new material, commenting, and sending messages. However, Meta did not disclose exactly what content was taken from West’s account.

The Anti-Defamation League has also spoken out against West’s post. The group resorted to social media to issue a brief statement condemning the “dangerous” remark. “Power. Betrayal. Greed. Deicide. Denial. Blood. “Anti-Zionism,” reads the declaration. ”  All of these are antisemitic tropes that we dissect in our #AntisemitismUncovered Guide, which can be found at https://antisemitism.adl.org.” Many of these beliefs have lately affected @KanyeWest’s views, which is hazardous.”

On Instagram, West previously shared images of purported texts with Sean “Puffy” Combs, nicknamed “Diddy.”

“Ima use you as an example to teach the Jewish people that instructed you to contact me that no one can intimidate or influence me,” the rapper states in one post, labelled “Jesus is Jew.” West’s account no longer has the post.

West later tweeted to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, asking, “how you gone kick me off Instagram.” An earlier photo of West, Zuckerberg, and others was included in the post.

On Sunday, October 9, the Black Jewish Entertainment Alliance issued a statement condemning West’s statements.

“Ye’s recent statements about the Jewish community are hurtful, offensive, and wrong. They perpetuate stereotypes that have been the basis for discrimination and violence against Jews for thousands of years. Words like this tear at the fabric of the Black-Jewish relationship,” the statement read.

“The Black and Jewish communities must stand together through incidents like this to make clear that trafficking in hateful stereotypes is unacceptable and that the words of one entertainer do not reflect the views of an entire community.”

West’s Instagram account was suspended for 24 hours in March after he posted a vulgarity directed at The Daily Show presenter Trevor Noah.
