Kanye West has been named anti-Semite of the year after a poll of nearly 10,000 online votes collected from the anti-hate watchdog group ‘StopAntisemitism.’
“Kanye uses his celebrity platform to push dangerous antisemitic tropes about Jews and power and he refuses to stop. 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,” SA Executive Director Liora Rez told TMZ in an interview.
“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.
Shortly after West declared he was, “going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE” a group was spotted hanging a “Kanye is right about the Jews” sign over a Los Angeles freeway.
Several days later, West told Piers Morgan he only wanted to hurt Jewish people who purportedly wronged him in the music industry.
Then, last week on Alex Jones “Infowars” West declared he loved Hitler and denied parts of the Holocaust.
His sponsors such as Adidas and Balenciaga have canceled contracts and the former music star lost an honorary degree.
