    Kanye West Triggered 30 Anti-Semitic Incidents In The USA

    Kanye West has done more damage than good due to his recent actions. From his perspective, he was the messiah of the oppressed beings due in the country and industries dominated by the Jewish community. However, his actions have to be seen through the lens of the perpetuation of hate and the hate-mongering narrative against them. It all first started at home i.e., targeting his community. In October 2022, at the Paris Fashion Week, he introduced new Yeezy t-shirts which had ‘White Lives Matter’ printed on them.

    This triggered the African American community and Ye faced a heavy backlash. Later, when he confronted Sean “Diddy” Combs, the rapper said that he will go “def con 3” on the Jewish community. This was the beginning of the end for the ‘Donda’ rapper. After constantly spewing hate against Jews with his anti-Semitic remarks, Kanye was ousted from the industry. The remarks tainted his brand and image along with financial loss. Now, his anti-Semitism also affected American society at large.
