“The behavior exhibited this week by @kanyewest is deeply troubling, dangerous, and antisemitic, period. There is no excuse for his propagating of white supremacist slogans and classic #antisemitism about Jewish power, especially with the platform he has,” they tweeted.

Kanye moved back to Twitter and posted for the first time in two years after he was first locked out of his Instagram by Meta Platforms Inc. He shared a photo of himself with CEO Mark Zuckerberg singing at a karaoke.

“Look at this Mark. How you gone kick me off Instagram,” he wrote.

He proceeded to use his Twitter account and share how he felt at the moment. For the rapper, it was as if he was being toyed around.

“When I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE. The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also. You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda [sic],” he shared.
