Rapper Kanye West apologized to the Jewish community online following his anti-Semitic remarks throughout the years where he has previously expressed his support for Adolf Hitler.


On Tuesday, 46-year-old West apologized to the Jewish community in a social media post, which was written in Hebrew, after he had criticized “powerful” Jewish individuals several times on various online platforms.

“I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for any unintended outburst caused by my words or actions, it was not my intention to hurt or disrespect, and I deeply regret any pain I may have caused,” West wrote. “I am committed to starting with myself and learning from this experience to ensure greater sensitivity and understanding in the future. Your forgiveness is important to me, and I am committed to making amends and promoting unity.”

The rapper’s various anti-Semitic outbursts during the past year have consisted of him voicing his support for Adolf Hitler, which ended in him losing several lucrative endorsement agreements with large companies and being executed from his talent agency.

Additionally, West made other anti-Semitic statements last year, including saying that he would go “death con 3 on Jewish people,” and saying, “I like Hitler,” to conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

Earlier this month, he was filmed blaming people for being behind his downfall and yelling, “Jesus Christ, Hitler, Ye.” His apology on Tuesday did not include any mention of this specific incident.

The rapper’s anti-Semitic messages have been widely denounced, even by his ex-wife Kim Kardashian, who expressed that she “stood with the Jewish community” in a post on X, formerly Twitter.

West’s anti-Semitic expressions led to multiple well-known brands cutting ties with him, including Adidas. This resulted in the termination of his Yeezy sneaker collaboration with the brand.

Adidas later announced that it donated a portion of the proceeds from the Yeezy sneaker line to charities including the Anti-Defamation League and the Philonise & Keeta Floyd Institute for Social Change.
