Cancel culture's intended Kanye West has done it before, but never as effectively as when he went on an anti-Semitic press tour to top off a rocky 2022.
However, in the manner of a memorial post to Jonah Hill, he recently apologized to the Jewish community. Kanye returned to Instagram after an extended hiatus to denounce the anti-Semitic clichés he spewed on sites like as Drink Champions and Fox News.
Ye commented, "Watching Jonah Hill in 21 Jump Street made me like Jewish people again." “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… Thank you Jonah Hill I love you.” the rapper said. Thank you Jonah Hill. I love you." Although Jonah Hill did not reply, the film's director, Christopher Miller, looked to be conflicted over Ye's remarks. "Um... thanks for watching?" Miller put pen to paper.
Some Jewish organizations have called Ye's apology unconvincing, especially considering the damage he committed.
StopAntisemitic and the American Jewish Committee feel he has to do more than watch 21 Jump Street after glorifying Hitler, disputing the amount of dead during the Holocaust, and declaring he'd go "death con 3" on the Jewish people. "It's a little odd that all it might take for Kanye to renounce his vile antisemitism is watch a 11-year-old Jonah Hill movie." "Only Kanye knows whether he is sincere," AJC rep Richard Hirschhaut remarked.
