Rapper Kanye West has become the subject of much controversy after sharing a series of anti-semitic remarks. Unfortunately, Kanye’s rants have also caused a resurgence of anti-semitic sentiments amongst the general public.

As reported earlier, Kanye’s comments inspired an anti-semitic rally in Los Angeles. It is truly disheartening to witness this turn of events. However, several public figures have come out against anti-semitism in response to Kanye’s rants.

Earlier, Khloé Kardashian had joined the Instagram movement, as a part of which several celebrities have been using the platform to share a statement of solidarity with Jewish people.

Now, another member of the Kardashian family has done the same. The statement, which reads, “I support my Jewish friends and the Jewish people,” was shared by Kendall Jenner on her Instagram Story.

While Kanye has faced severe backlash from multiple brands and public figures, and been deplatformed by Twitter and Instagram, it is clear that his anti-semitic remarks have spawned a terrible wave of bigotry. In these dark times, it is nice to see other celebrities taking a stand against hateful ideologies.

What’s your take on this movement against Ye? Sound off in the comments!
