“watching jonah hill in 21 jump street made me like jewish people again” Kanye West

American Rapper and fashion designer Kanye West now known as Ye is back on instagram after his accounts were locked because of antisemitic posts last year by Meta a parent company to Instagram.

Ye, who has been attracting negative attention and mounting calls for companies to cut ties with him following several weeks of troubling statements, many of them anti-Semitic. The ongoing wave of offensive speech began at Paris Fashion Week and continued with unaired footage from an interview with Tucker Carlson, false statements made during a podcast appearance about the cause of George Floyd’s death, and recent anti-Semitic remarks made on social media. Those remarks appear to have emboldened a group of demonstrators to hold a sign over a Los Angeles freeway that read, “Kanye is right about the Jews” while giving a Nazi salute, according to photos.

The comments he made on Twitter and during his since-deleted podcast interview with Drink Champs—where he made unfounded claims that Jewish people hold immeasurable power in media—have gotten him locked out of his Twitter and Instagram accounts, and prompted a slew of companies to cut ties with him. He has been posting instead on Parler, the right-wing social media app he has announced plans to buy.

On Oct. 24, Adidas announced it had ended its partnership with West. On Tuesday, it was announced that West had been dropped by his talent agency, CAA, and studio executives at MRC announced on Monday that they would be shelving a recently completed documentary. “We cannot support any content that amplifies his platform,” the executives wrote in a joint memo released this morning. On Oct. 27, the shoe company Skechers released a statement which said that they had escorted West off the premises of their office building after he showed up unannounced. They said they have no intention of working with him.

After Ye’s access to his Instagram account was reinstated, he began uploading posts, responding to the multiple companies that are no longer working with him, “Ari Emanuel,” his post reads, in reference to the CEO of Endeavor Talent Agency who spoke out against West’s statements. “This is love speech. I still love you. God still loves you. The money is not who I am. The people is who I am.” West also claimed to have lost $2 billion in one day.

In a post today, Ye shared, “Watching Jonah Hill 21 Jump street made me like Jewish people again.”

No one should take anger against one or two individuals and transform that into hatred towards millions of innocent people, Ye added

No Christian can be labeled antisemite knowing Jesus is Jew

Thank you Jonah Hill I love you
