Rapper Kanye West is under criticism from the Anti-Defamation League and other Jewish organisations for spreading anti-semitic material on social media.
The Anti-Defamation League called the rapper’s latest remarks “dangerous” in a statement released on Sunday afternoon, and it provided readers with information to help them recognise and confront antisemitism.
“Disloyalty. Power Greed. Deicide. Death. Refusal. Anti-Zionism. These are all antisemitic stereotypes that we dissect in our guide, “#AntisemitismUncovered,” “According to the Anti-Defamation League.
It’s risky that many of these fallacies have recently affected (West’s) remarks.
Due to recent infractions of the rules and regulations of both Instagram and Twitter, West’s account has been restricted on both platforms.
First came West’s Instagram limitations.
The rapper released a screenshot of communication with rapper Sean on October 7th “I’ma use you as an example to teach the Jewish people that told you to call me that no one can intimidate or influence me,” West stated in a letter to Combs. I warned you that this was war.”
Instagram decided to block West’s account even though it did not specify which specific content violated its rules; however, the post containing the text conversation has already been taken down.

Following the Instagram ban, West immediately started tweeting more anti-Semitic remarks.
In a tweet that has since been taken down due to “When I wake up I’m gonna death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” West tweeted, breaking Twitter’s terms of service. The irony is that black people are actually Jews, so I can’t really be anti-Semitic. You people have played me around and attempted to blacklist everyone who disagrees with your agenda.”
As with Instagram, a Twitter spokesman stated that the company had blocked West’s account, although she did not specify which specific content had led to the decision.
On Sunday, the pro-Israel non-profit Creative Community for Peace, which concentrates on the entertainment sector, issued a statement of its own denouncing West’s remarks.
He has disseminated some of the most heinous and antiquated misconceptions about Jews to his hundreds of millions of followers in the last week, the group claimed. This kind of hatred has no place in our public dialogue. We respect the freedom of speech of all entertainers, but no one has the right to maliciously target and denigrate a minority group.
We have serious concerns about how Ye’s words will affect his supporters, especially young people.
“We also hope that Ye, his supporters, and other performers would learn more about the risks of antisemitism as a result of this incident. We’re still willing to talk to him about how damaging and mistaken his remarks are “Added by the Community
On October 7, the American Jewish Committee, a lobbying organisation that bills itself as the “global centre for Jewish and Israel advocacy,” issued a statement criticizing West’s remarks.
