Kim Kardashian is speaking out about her ex Kanye West’s recent antisemitic comments. The 42 year old SKIMS mogul shared her thoughts on Monday about the situation on Twitter. Twitting “Hate speech is never okay 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’s sister, Khloe Kardashian, also seemingly addressed Kanye West’s antisemitic comments on Sunday by sharing Jerry Seinfeld’s wife, Jessica Seinfeld’s post to her own Instagram stories with the post-reading “I support my Jewish friends and the Jewish people.” She also tweeted the statement along with a pair of blue heart emojis.
The Kardashian sisters aren’t the only ones speaking out about Ye’s recent comments. On Monday, the 45 year old rapper was dropped as a client by CAA. The talent agency is the latest business to cut ties with Yay following his recent antisemitic outbursts.
Last week, the international fashion house Balenciaga also dropped him. Besides CAA and Balenciaga, MRC. Studio executives modi witzek asus thatchu. And Scott Penley announced in a press release on Monday that a completed documentary about Yay will also not be premiered any time in the near future.
With the execs writing in part “this morning, after discussion with our filmmakers and distribution partners, we made the decision not to proceed with any distribution for our recently completed documentary about Kanye West. We cannot support any content that amplifies his platform. Kanye is a producer and sampler of music. Last week he sampled and remixed a classic tune that has chartered for over 3000 years the Lie That Jews are evil and conspire to control the world for their own gain. The silence from leaders and corporations when it comes to Kanye or Antisemitism, in general, is dismaying but not surprising. What is new and sad is the fear Jews have about speaking out in their own defense.”
The news of CIA dropping Yay and the cancellation of his documentary comes one day after UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer shared a memo on Sunday denouncing antisemitism and calling for a boycott of the heartless rapper, writing “Regrettably, antisemitism, racism and many forms of hate and intolerance are part of the fabric of society. Generally, they live as a plague, eroding the health of communities, and are combatted by understanding, tolerance, and the general goodness of most people. But throughout history, some have used their public platform to speed the plague out loud and spread the contagion to dangerous effect. Kanye is the latest to do so, and we’re seeing how his words embolden others to amplify their vile beliefs.”
Kanye West’s antisemitic comments have been going on for a while now. Over the weekend, banners were put up on a 405 freeway overpass in Los Angeles that was in support of Kanye West’s past statements, which referenced the bond to the rapper’s previous slurs.
