The latest character arc of entertainer Kanye West has been his most offensive yet, and it’s beginning to become hard to tell if there is any redemption possible for the hip hop superstar.
West, who also goes by “Ye”, has been making the media rounds of late, making wild and performative statement praising Hitler, demeaning the Jewish people, and suggesting that we all need to “stop dissin’ Nazis”.
While this turn of face has largely resulted in Kanye’s cultural cancellation, the music maker did receive a rather profound international award this week.
Kanye West may never win another music-related award again, but there’s one group that’s honoring him with a not-so-flattering title … “Antisemite of the Year.”
After several weeks and nearly 10,000 votes from members online, watchdog group StopAntisemitism has named Ye the most problematic person of 2022 when it comes to the group’s mission.Trending:
Liora Rez, SA’s Executive Director, tells TMZ, “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.”
She continues, “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.”
West’s recent, hate-filled banter has been so outrageous that even the notoriously belligerent Alex Jones, (of Infowars infamy), was having a hard time stomaching it when Ye recently appeared on his program.
