Kanye West’s anti-Semitic remark
Last year, West dealt with a slew of issues and controversies, ranging from his divorce from Kim Kardashian to a feud with one of the world’s biggest brands, Adidas. The drama between West and Pete Davidson was one of the most popular topics last year after Kardashian began dating Davidson before West and the SKIMS founder’s divorce was finalized.
One of the other reasons West was chastised on the internet was for his anti-Semitic remarks. He claimed in one of the deleted Tweets that he was “going to death con 3 ON JEWISH PEOPLE” before claiming he wasn’t “Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also.”
West received a lot of hate from people online after his anti-Semitic remarks.
