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.
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.”
It’s not hard to find the evidence backing Kanye’s “Antisemite of the Year” victory.
As we reported, it was shortly after he declared he was, “going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE” when a group was spotted hanging a “Kanye is right about the Jews” sign over an L.A. freeway.
Just a few days after that, Kanye told Piers Morgan he only wished harm on Jewish people who did him wrong in music and business deals.
Finally, it was last week on Alex Jones “Infowars” when Kanye declared he loved Hitler, denied parts of the Holocaust and demanded Nazis get hated on less when things really ramped up.
We know Adidas, Balenciaga and some of Kanye’s closest friends have all cut ties … he even lost an honorary degree.
Hard to imagine his “Antisemite of the Year” honor will disappear any time soon.
