Kanye West is back in headlines, which usually means that he’s said something to get people excited or has a new project in the works. Some feel he went too far, prompting others to call him anti-Semitic, and others to urge him to seek treatment for mental illness.
Although there were some mentions of Jewish people within West’s posts, as well as his wearing a White Lives Matter shirt throughout the week, West’s late-night tweet, which has since been deleted, earned him ridicule, hate and a restricted social-media presence.

The House GOP thought it cool to have West aboard in some fashion earlier this week. This tweet may have been updated, but it is still up.
Kanye West is never so crazy that he says anything off the wall about white people…y’all ever notice that? He’s never so manic to where he says something that will shake the tables in a white household. His mania is ALWAYS at the expense of Black people & when he has a project. https://t.co/IAUehXGtF8

Kanye has dealt with many powerful and corrupt people from different faiths and backgrounds. The Jews are to blame. Even 2022 is still a thousand years old of scapegoating. All men are equal!
