Kanye West stated that when he wakes up, he will go “death con 3 on Jewish people,” as he is currently too “sleepy” to do so. West made the comments on Twitter on Saturday night, after Instagram suspended his account due to several anti-Semitic posts.
“I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” West wrote in his tweet, likely meaning to say DEFCON 3.
From there, he claimed that he was not anti-Semitic: “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 blackball anyone who opposes your agenda.”
In another post, he asked, “Who you think created cancel culture?”
Ye’s recent behavior has been condemned by the American Jewish Committee in addition to being barred from Instagram (AJC). The organization took issue with remarks he made on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show, as well as a recent text message exchange with Diddy.
Aside from the AJC, West has been chastised by a number of celebrities in recent weeks, including Diddy, Boosie Badazz, and Jaden Smith. He received backlash after wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt to his recent YZY SZN 9 show.
