Things are not well with Kanye West, this much we know to be true.
The hip hop superstar and fashion entrepreneur has been steadily thrusting himself into the spotlight in recent weeks by making increasingly more hateful comments, most of which have been aimed at the Jewish people.
To put things into perspective, West even appeared to make Infowars’ Alex Jones uncomfortable during an appearance on his network by praising Hitler and suggesting that he had respect for the Nazis of 1940’s Germany.
Now, after weeks of such abhorrent banter, West is being recognized for his antisemitism.
Kanye West may never win another music-related award again, but there’s one group that’s honoring him with a not-so-flattering title … “Antisemite of the Year.”
After several weeks and nearly 10,000 votes from members online, watchdog group StopAntisemitism has named Ye the most problematic person of 2022 when it comes to the group’s mission.
Liora Rez, SA’s Executive Director, tells TMZ, “Kanye uses his celebrity platform to push dangerous antisemitic tropes about Jews and power and he refuses to stop. His continuous onslaught of bigoted statements has resulted in horrific antisemitic acts perpetrated by white supremacists, Black Hebrew Israelites, and other fringe groups looking to cause Jews harm.”
She continues, “Jew hatred is already out of control in the United States and the last thing we need is a celebrity like Kanye to add fuel to that fire.”
As West’s behavior grows steadily more hateful, many have begun to wonder what exactly the end-game is for the musician, especially given just how calculated he has been with his image in the past.
