Kanye West’s Anti-Semitic Comment On Death Com 3 Sparks Reaction; Twitter Criticises Kanye’s Statements
Twitter recently took action against Kanye West for engaging in an anti-Semitic tirade on the social networking site. The Flashing Lights singer’s Instagram account was also banned on Friday after he posted similar hateful comments there, in addition to his removal from the app.
Kanye “Ye” West tweeted in a tweet that has since been deleted: The musician continued to explain his anti-Semitic post by asserting that he couldn’t be against Jews because he is black.
“I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.”
According to the famous singer’s tweet, he was presumably referring to the military word “DEFCON” when he wrote “death con 3.” There are five levels of danger to national security, with level 1 being the most dangerous and level 5 being the least dangerous.
“I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jews also You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone who opposes your agenda.”
Therefore, it appears from West’s post that either he was preparing himself for danger from Jews or that he was planning to personally harm them.
