'Kanye 2024' Shouted During Anti-Jewish Attack in NYC

Linkedin Share

In one of the strangest plot twists in all of American pop culture, hip hop superstar Kanye West has been cavorting with known antisemites and white supremacists, developing a character arc that takes the performance art of Andy Kaufmann and turns it nuclear and hateful.

And, just in case the nation thought that these were simply the ravings and rantings of a clearly troubled rapper, think again:  There are real-world consequences for his emboldening of these racists.

The New York Police Department is investigating an alleged attack in Central Park this week in which a man in his mid-40s assaulted a 63-year-old man and spewed antisemitic comments before yelling out “Kanye 2024,” a reference to rapper Ye’s recent antisemitic rhetoric.

It was quite the violent encounter.

The older man was walking in Central Park about 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday when the other man allegedly hit him from behind, according to police. When the older man fell to the ground, he broke his hand and chipped a tooth, authorities said.

The attacker then uttered “numerous” antisemitic comments toward the man, according to police. Before the attacker fled on a bicycle — with a trailer featuring a sign reading “Hungry Disabled” — police say he referenced the artist formerly known as Kanye West, who has issued several antisemitic tirades, saying “Kanye 2024.”

The injured man has not been publicly identified, but is said to be hospitalized in stable condition.
