Kanye West returned to social media for the first time in months late Friday to declare that he “likes Jewish people again,” all thanks to Jonah Hill’s performance in 21 Jump Street.
Kanye West’s fans hilariously react to the rapper’s post, with one saying: ‘jump street has enlightened this man’
In his first Instagram post of 2023 — and his first since a series of antisemitic tirades got him booted from social media in the first place.
“Watching Jonah Hill in 21 Jump street made me like Jewish people again.”
West wrote on Instagram.
In what’s perhaps his version of a mea culpa, WestWest, who praised Hitler on Infowars and surrounded himself with notorious far-right extremists during the tail end of 2022 — added that, “No one should take anger against one or two individuals and transform that into hatred towards millions of innocent people. No Christian can be labeled antisemite knowing Jesus is Jew.”
He was also removed from Twitter and Instagram and dropped by Adidas, Balenciaga and his agency CCA.
West then again thanked Hill’s performance in a comedy reboot of an 80s TV cop drama for his epiphany, “Thank you Jonah Hill I love you.”
Kanye’s post sparked reactions from his fans and followers as some think the rapper has admitted his past blunders, while few create memes to express their anger.
Reacting to the father-of-four’s latest adventure, one fan wrote in the comment section: “This is the most kanye apology ever.”
Another added: “jump street has enlightened this man.”
The third one chimed in: “Made me like Jewish people again.”
