Kanye Apologizes To Jewish Community In Hebrew
Kanye West is back on Instagram with an important message. The controversial rapper took to the social media platform on Tuesday (Dec. 26) to apologize to the Jewish community for his antisemtic words over the years. In an attempt to calm the tension he posted the apology in Hebrew.
“I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for any unintended outburst caused by my words or actions, it was not my intention to hurt or disrespect, and I deeply regret any pain I may have caused,” West wrote in translation from Hebrew.
Kanye continued, “I am committed to starting with myself and learning from this experience to ensure greater sensitivity and understanding in the future. Your forgiveness is important to me, and I am committed to making amends and promoting unity.”
Ye’s apology follows Israeli MMA fighter Haim Gozali posting a missile with the rapper’s name on it. “Kanye West Flying to Gaza Haim Gozali,” the missile read as the athlete posted it to X (formerly known as Twitter).
However, many fans just urged him to drop Vultures, the joint project set to arrive on Jan. 12 while other fans called him out for his lackluster apology.
“You should be ashamed of yourself,” one Instagram user wrote in the comment section. “For more than a year you shoot anti-Semitic and offensive statements for no reason and out of complete ignorance! Is this the legacy you want to pass on to your children???”
“Now post it in English so that not only we (Hebrew speakers) will understand,” another fan wrote.
Kanye West Apologizes To The Jewish Community After Antisemitic Rant
This is not the first time Ye has apologized to the Jewish community. A week after brands such as Balenciaga, Adidas, and more dropped the rapper for his antisemitic rant, he joined Piers Morgan on his show last year to apologize.
“I will say I’m sorry for the people that I hurt with the ‘Death Con,'” he said, regarding a tweet where he threatened to go “death con three” against the Jewish people (he likely meant “defcon three”). “I feel like I caused hurt and confusion and I’m sorry for the families of the people that had nothing to do with the trauma that I’d been through. And I used my platform where you say, ‘Hurt people, hurt people.’ And I was hurt.”
