Kanye West, previously, used to be in the headlines for his feud with his former wife, Kim Kardashian, and her family. However, things have pretty much heated up after the rapper shared anti-semitic remarks on social media and further stood up for it. Amid the string of controversies, various celebrities including his ex-wife have voiced against him. Not only that, but he had also lost many brand deals, resulting in a heavy loss for the infamous star.
After being surrounded by criticism, the rapper has made another statement on Instagram stating that he is having a hard time because of the events which happened to him in the past few weeks.
Kanye West Made a Comeback With a New Instagram Post
The 45-year-old fashion designer, Kanye West, recently shared a post on the social media platform, Instagram, addressing the recent controversy. He claimed that he had been “beat to a pulp” after many sports and fashion brands have cut off their partnerships with the father of four.
In the caption of the post he wrote, “The ‘unknown powers’ are trying to destroy my life off of a tweet So does this prove that my so-called suspicion was true? Leading with love This is #lovespeech.”
He slammed the other companies that cut him off which resulted in the rapper having a problem by stating that he is still “allowed on Mark Zuckerberg’s platform.”
He demanded to see the contracts referring to the major deals that have been discontinued after he continuously made anti-semitic remarks about the Jewish community.
Why Is Ye Being Criticized?
Ye initially made headlines for wearing a t-shirt with the slogan White Lives Matter written over it, in his Yeezy Paris show. Just a while after that incident, he made anti-semitic remarks on social media and in interviews.
In a now-deleted tweet, the rapper posted earlier this month, he wrote, “I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.” That comment hurt the sentiments of the Jew community.
After major criticisms, his tweet was deleted from Twitter. Not just that, but his account was restricted from that service. However, his account was reinstated earlier this week, with the new service owner, Elon Musk claiming that the company did it before his takeover without informing him about the same.
He lost major brand deals and big collaborations such as Balenciaga, Gap, and Vogue among a few others. After losing those deals, the rapper reportedly lost $2 billion following his several controversies.
