In another shocking post on social media, Ye aka Kanye West likens the backlash he’s recently received to being lynched like Emmett Till.


On Sunday (Oct. 30), Ye went on Instagram to attack Ari Emanuel, the CEO of the media agency Endeavor which owns a major stake in the UFC. He posted the picture of Emmett Till, grossly disfigured after he was lynched in 1955 in his casket. The image, first published in Jet Magazine with the permission of the 14-year-old’s mother Mamie Till-Mobley, is regarded as a key symbol that sparked the Civil Rights Movement.
