Kim Kardashian condemns Kanye West’s antisemitic remarks, stands with Jewish community
Kim Kardashian: Kanye West should have “no role” in her foundation and “no power” to “dictate” who gets and who doesn’t
Kim Kardashian is standing by her support for Kanye West, who recently made antisemitic comments on his song “Birth Of The Mosh.” In response, Kardashian condemned West’s remarks in an Instagram post.
“This is something I don’t want my foundation to be associated with – a man who would say such ridiculous things about other people in his song,” Kardashian said. “This is not who I am. I have never met or talked to Kanye West. I have listened to his music. I have had him on my show. In my entire life, never once has he made a hateful remark about me, my family or anyone I know.”
Kardashian further said she didn’t want West to have any role in her new Kardashian Brand, which represents her fashion and lifestyle brand, because she doesn’t believe in what he stands for. “I am not part of his family and I cannot be part of his foundation,” she wrote. “I am not his muse. And in no way can I be someone that he relies on to tell him what he can or can’t do or say.”
Kardashian said West isn’t someone she thinks about “every day” and doesn’t have any “real power to dictate how people see themselves.” “I am not even a Kardashian,” she said. “I have not had access to the K-Beauty brand for the past three years.” Kardashian then mentioned West’s father and his recent comments about their dad’s ex-wife. “His father was a Nazi who should never have been allowed to own a company and make millions of dollars,” she wrote.
To prove her point, Kardashian then went to YouTube to show a couple of videos of West wearing Nazi-styled uniforms.
