Kanye West has been repeatedly criticized for his anti-Semitic remarks, and recently, New York City Mayor Eric Adams condemned the rapper for his hateful views.
Speaking at the Combat Antisemitism Movement, which brought together Jewish and non-Jewish leaders to discuss the issue, the Mayor stated, “We are using outdated methods to address a modern-day crisis. If we remain in a sterile environment like this, with those who are already aware of the issue, we won’t be able to combat anti-Semitism. The problem is not in this room, but outside of it.”
Previously, Nick Cannon has spoken about his attempts to make Kanye West understand the severity of his anti-Semitic rants. In a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, the father-of-twelve expressed his concerns, saying, “Kanye is saying some wild ****, and I don’t know if he really believes it.”
The TV personality added that he tried to talk to West and connect him with Jewish community leaders, as he believes that there is more to the situation than what appears on the surface. He concluded with the statement, “I just know he’s in desperate need of help and love and people to not abandon him.”
