Good news for Jews all over the world!
Kanye West no longer wants everyone to die in pain.
A few months ago, the rapper was in the news over and over again for making antisemitic comments. For example, he once said he was going to “death con 3” on Jewish people.
Also, he said that he “saw good things in Hitler.”
Fast forward to this weekend, however, and the 2022 Antisemite of the Year has apparently seen the light.
For a rather unexpected (and absurd) reason.
“Watching Jonah Hill in 21 Jump street made me like Jewish people again,” West wrote on Instagram late on Friday, adding at the time:
“No one should take anger against one or two individuals and transform that into hatred towards millions of innocent people.”
The controversial artist concluded his post as follows:
“No Christian can be labeled antisemite knowing Jesus is Jew. Thank you Jonah Hill I love you.”
The Anti-Defamation League released a report this week that counted all the antisemitic incidents that happened in the United States in 2022. This is when West’s Ye made his strange comments.
The group counted 59 times when Ye was “directly mentioned” after he started making “many harmful, conspiratorial statements about Jews” in October.
In a press release for the report, Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO and national director of the ADL, said, “This data confirms what Jewish communities across the country have felt and seen firsthand, and it matches the rise in antisemitic attitudes.”
Sounds like more people should watch Jonah Hill movies, doesn’t it?
As was said above, West was kicked off Twitter last fall for a rant in which he said he wanted to “go death con 3 on Jewish people” and that he wanted to delete it.
Yes, that is the way he put it.
This idiot went on to say, “The funny thing is that I can’t be anti-Semitic because Black people are also Jews.”
“You guys have teased me and tried to smear anyone who doesn’t agree with your plans.”
Because of these comments, West also lost a VERY, VERY good deal with Adidas.
Because of this, West is no longer a billionaire.
West later doubled down in several interviews, during which he accused wealthy Jews of controlling the media and manipulating prominent Black celebrities and athletes.
“I like Hitler,” he also said while speaking with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
This may be so.
But the guy loves Jonah Hill!
