Kanye West has been in the news for a variety of reasons. It’s either about his divorce or about his shoes. He used to put them all on Instagram, but he was recently suspended for making anti-Semitic remarks. The Holocaust Museum recently invited Kanye to educate him.
Page Six reports, the Holocaust Museum in Los Angeles wants Kanye West to visit so he may educate himself after making anti-Semitic statements on Instagram. “Words matter and words have consequences Ye. We urge you to come visit us at Holocaust Museum LA to understand just how words can incite horrific violence and genocides,” the Holocaust Museum L.A. wrote in a statement. According to the museum, his words are powerful and have the potential to provoke violence against Jews.
The Holocaust started with only words that sadly begat stereotypes, racial and religious tropes and blaming others and led to the murder of six million Jews.
The museum also stated that they educate about all genocides, including the Armenian genocide, noting that his kids are of Armenian origin, whom he shares with his ex-wife Kim Kardashian. “At Holocaust Museum LA it is our mission to commemorate those who were murdered, educate on the Holocaust and all genocides including the genocide perpetrated against the Armenian People (of which your children would be included), and inspire a more dignified and humane world,” the museum said.
West was invited to visit the museum at the end of the statement. “Your words reach millions and you can choose to incite or you can choose to inspire. We are located at 100 The Grove Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90036 and welcome you any time,” the museum wrote. West undoubtedly knows about the Holocaust as he rapped in his 2011 song “Who Gon Stop Me,” “This is something like the Holocaust / Millions of our people lost.”
The “Hurricane” rapper faced backlash last week after posting anti-Semitic slurs on Instagram. West’s anti-Semitic antics come after he was dragged for debuting controversial “White Lives Matter” shirts at his Yeezy fashion show in Paris last week. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
