In The Post, Ye Claimed He Was A Victim Of An “Economic Lynching” And A “Digital Lynching.”
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.
Kanye went on to post a screengrab of a conversation he was having with someone named Russell, initials “RS” … who’s encouraging him to simmer down, strategize and find a better way to vent his frustrations. He fires back, though, with a weird reply — saying he needs to get the “Jewish business people” to make contracts fair … or die trying. That post has since been deleted, BTW, but of course … it was captured and lives on the internet.

He Also Posted A Shot Of Herschel Walker With A Straightforward Caption … “Pro-life.”
In the caption to the post he wrote, “Ari Emmanuel Can you find a place for the Donda Academy kids to go to school that’s properly zoned for a school? I got about 60 children that have no place to be as they look to transfer. They tried to dismantle our basketball team. Those boys are being penalized without reason. Even professional athletes were threatened by their owners to disassociate.”
The “Flashing Lights” rapper goes on to say “This is what modern post social media #Blackmirror warfare looks like…the children are not even off limits,” before stating that he is suffering an “Economic Lynching”, a “Digital Lynching” and taking a hit to his “Social Credit Score.” He ends in an incoherent but veiled rant:
“You tried to bankrupt Adidas and me at the same time. You tried to destroy my life after all the money I’ve made for the ‘business’ people. At least as I burn to the stake in front of the whole world… // everyone now knows who they need to really be afraid of.”
