Instagram Restricts Kanye West For Antisemitic Post

The Daily Beast reports:

Kanye West’s tumultuous week began with backlash over a “White Lives Matter” shirt and culminated with Instagram restricting his account after he made anti-Semitic posts. West posted a screenshot of his text conversation with Sean “Diddy” Combs, where he insinuated Combs was being controlled by Jewish people. The American Jewish Committee, an anti-hate group, called out West for his “dangerous” comments.

NBC News reports:

In the post, West shared a screenshot of a text exchange he said he had with Sean “Diddy” Combs, with the caption “Jesus is Jew.” The post came after West appeared in a Fox News interview Thursday with Tucker Carlson and also echoed anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. In the interview, Ye accused Jared Kushner, who is Jewish, of brokering Israeli treaties for monetary gain.

Mediaite reports:

Kanye West may be taking another run at the White House. In a tweet posted late Friday evening, West simply wrote “2024” and included an image of a black hat with the same year written on it. The picture appears to have been taken inside a warehouse. West previously sold products like hoodies and hats promoting his 2020 presidential run. The rapper has teased a 2024 run before.
