Khloé Kardashian took a stand against anti-Semitism after Kanye West, the ex-husband of her sister Kim Kardashian, made numerous hateful comments about Jewish people this month.
“I support my Jewish friends and the Jewish people,” Kardashian, 38, shared in a statement to Twitter Monday along with two blue heart emojis. She also posted the same message to her Instagram Story.
Kim — with whom Ye shares children North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm — shared her own statement on Instagram as well, writing, “hate speech is never OK or excusable.”
She added, “I stand together with the Jewish community and call on the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end.”
Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner as well as momager Kris Jenner shared the same message of solidarity as Khloé on their Instagram Stories hours later.
The “Heartless” rapper, 45, has been criticized for continuously defending his hateful remarks about Jewish people, including the anti-Semitic trope that they control the media and other industries.
The hate came to a head over the weekend when a group of people hung a sign that read “Kanye is right about the Jews” on a highway overpass in Los Angeles.
Balenciaga cut ties with West last week due to his anti-Semitism and Page Six exclusively reported that Vogue has no intention of working with him ever again.
Pressure has also been put on Adidas to end its partnership with the controversial designer after he bragged to Piers Morgan, “I can literally say anti-Semitic things and Adidas can’t drop me.”
Adidas put its partnership with West “under review” after he debuted “White Lives Matter” T-shirts at Paris Fashion Week earlier this month, but the company has yet to publicly comment on his anti-Semitic jabs.
West reportedly hired Johnny Depp’s attorney to represent him as his brand partnerships and business deals dwindle as a result of his controversial actions.
The Yeezy founder was also banned from Twitter at the start of October after tweeting that he wanted to go “death con 3” on Jews. He had previously been kicked off Instagram for sharing similar anti-Semitic posts.
West told Morgan on Wednesday that he is “absolutely not” sorry for the threatening tweet.
“I fought fire with fire. I’m not here to get hosed down. That’s a different type of freedom fighter,” the rapper told the 57-year-old talk show host.
While some of West’s supporters have tried to use his bipolar disorder as an excuse for his hatred, others, including Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel, say mental illness is not an excuse for hatred.
“Those who continue to do business with West are giving his misguided hate an audience. There should be no tolerance anywhere for West’s anti-Semitism,” Emanuel wrote in an op-ed for the Financial Times. “This is a moment in history where the stakes are high and being open about our values, and living them, is essential. Silence and inaction are not an option.”
Several celebrities have also condemned West for his anti-Semitism, including John Legend, Jamie Lee Curtis and Morgan Spector.
The LA Holocaust Museum invited the rapper to pay a visit so he could learn more about Jewish history and why his words are so harmful.
West has not publicly responded to the invitation.
