Key Takeaway

Kanye West has ignited controversy once again with the release of his song “Vultures,” which includes lyrics referencing a sexual encounter with a “Jewish bitch.” Jewish advocacy groups have condemned Kanye’s lyrics as antisemitic and accuse him of perpetuating hatred and discrimination.

Backlash from Jewish Organizations

Several Jewish advocacy groups, including the Anti-Defamation League and the American Jewish Committee, have come forward to express their outrage over Kanye’s choice of lyrics. They argue that in a time of rising antisemitism worldwide, the use of such degrading language only serves to perpetuate hatred and discrimination.

Representatives from the Anti-Defamation League condemn Kanye’s lyrics as “disgusting” and accuse him of being an “unrepentant antisemite” and a misogynist. They believe it is distressing to witness someone with Kanye’s influence and platform using it to spread Jew hatred.

Similarly, Richard Hirschhaut, a spokesperson for the American Jewish Committee, shares his disappointment in Kanye’s antisemitism, calling it “pathetic and sad.” He denounces Kanye’s actions as “unforgivable” and warns of the dangers of promoting such bile during a time when the Jewish community faces increased hostility.

Performing Offensive Lyrics in Dubai

Kanye West performed “Vultures,” including the contentious lyrics, live for the first time at a nightclub in Dubai over the weekend. The performance, which featured Ty Dolla $ign and Lil Durk, further ignited the controversy surrounding the song.

The leaked song, which Kanye had been working on while in the Middle East for his collaboration with Ty Dolla $ign, has sparked intense backlash. Despite the condemnations, Kanye has shown no signs of backing down.
