Kanye’s Antisemitic Comments
Ye’s concert was highly anticipated. And it also had the tendency, of being the official global premiere. This is due to his collaborative album with Ty Dolla $ign.

Due to Ye’s comments in support of the genocidal leader. It stirred up discontent among veterans who fought against the Nazis in World War II.
Albertina Soliani. The vice president of ANPI. And the National Association of Italian Partisans, expressed…
“It’s time to say enough to these people who believe they can say what they want.
Someone can be a fantastic singer but then they are also judged by what they say, and West has made some inhumane declarations, and with what’s happening in the world today, we cannot accept this concert”.
“We are focused every day on carrying certain values, which are liberty and democracy, and then with this, we just have to start again from the beginning.
In my opinion, he should stay at home… [W]e are on the side of the oppressed and not those who preach hate”.
Together. They both have be searching for various independent labels.
But several major labels declined to collaborate with Ye. Due to his antisemitic remarks from the previous year.
This however was due to the label distancing itself from West following his controversial statements.
