The Chicago rapper expressed his support for Kyrie Irving on Sunday (October 30) by sharing a black-and-white photo of the Brooklyn Nets star on Instagram with the caption: "There's some real ones still here."
Kyrie, like Kanye, has been chastised for supposed anti-Semitism after tweeting a link to a film called Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America, which is "based on a book full of anti-Semitic disinformation," according to Nets owner Joe Tsai.
Ye, on the other hand, appeared to have difficulty tagging Kyrie in his Instagram post, as he later tweeted a screenshot of himself searching for the NBA All-verified Star's account, only to find a swarm of phony sites.
Kanye blamed the hiccup on "red media," a phrase he previously used to characterize media corporations that are allegedly run by Jewish people and have "teamed up" against him.
“They make it impossible to tag the right page when the #redmedia mad at you,” he wrote. “Here’s two examples back to back[.] I spent ten minutes trying to figure out how to tag the right page.”
The Donda rapper committed the same error when intending to tag Stephen A. Smith in a different Instagram post congratulating the sports analyst on being a "real one." Kanye had misspelled Smith’s first name as “Steven.”
Kanye West's support towards Kyrie Irving and Stephen A. Smith comes in the midst of a string of controversial Instagram postings.
