Kim Kardashian addresses “Jewish hate speech” after ex Kanye’s anti-Semitic Remark
Now that Kanye West’s anti-Semitic Tweet has received widespread attention, Kim Kardashian has addressed the controversy.
Until this evening’s post on Instagram, the Kardashians star had not mentioned her ex-husband’s scandalous social media conduct.
Father-of-four On October 9, Kanye, 45, tweeted to his followers, “I’m a bit sleepy tonight, but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.”
Rapper Ye has subsequently apologized for the remark, stating he was “hurt” at the time, but his ex-wife Kim maintains that hate speech is “never ok or excusable”
Kim, 42, went to her Stories this evening to express that she “stands together with the Jewish community” and to demand a “immediate end” to “hateful rhetoric.”
Sister Khloe took to Twitter this morning to say, “I support my Jewish friends and the Jewish people.” breaking the family’s silence on Kanye’s antics.
Later, Kim’s sisters Kendall and Kylie, as well as momager Kris Jenner, posted the same message to their own Instagram stories.
“Hate speech is never ok or excusable. I stand together with the Jewish community and call on the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end,” Kim stated
The singer Boy George had previously urged the Hollywood heavyweight to make a statement condemning Kanye’s obscene social media post.
Even yesterday he was saying: “It surprises me that more creative people have not spoken out against his views.
Since she is a mother, Kim Kardashian must know how disheartening and frightening it must be for young Jewish children to hear these f***ing words, and I am disgusted that she has not spoken out about it.
Piers Morgan, host of TalkTV, grilled Kanye West on his anti-Semitic Tweet in a shocking interview.
After being continually pressed by Piers on his language choice, Kanye unexpectedly declared: “Interview adjourned. Love you,” before walking off.
The interview resumed after a little break when he went to get some coffee.
Kanye was suspended from Twitter and Instagram for his controversial comments.
Instagram’s parent company, Meta, said that it had “deleted content from @kanyewest” for being in violation of the company’s rules. He also had his account frozen.
The man spoke straightforwardly: “I will say I’m sorry for the people I hurt with the ‘death con’, with the confusion, I feel like I caused hurt and confusion and I am sorry for the families of the people who had nothing to do with the trauma that I had been through.
“And that I used my platform where you say, I hurt people, and I was hurt.”
