You, formerly known as Kanye West, was recently banned from posting anti-Semitic posts on Twitter and Instagram.
WASHINGTON – A full-length documentary about the rapper formerly known as Kanye West has been shelved in recent days. Numerous anti-Semitic comments.
MRC Studio executives Modi Vizic, Asif Sachu and Scott Tenley announced in a memo on Monday: “We cannot support any content that extends its platform.”
You were recently blocked from posting anti-Semitic posts on Twitter and Instagram that the social networks said violated their policies. He has also suggested that slavery is a choice and called the COVID-19 vaccine “the mark of the beast”. Earlier this month, you were criticized for wearing a “White Lives Matter” T-shirt to showcase your latest collection at Paris Fashion Week.
Wiczyk and Satchu are co-founders and co-CEOs of MRC Entertainment. Tenley is the Chief Business Officer. It comes days after the documentary was shelved. French fashion house Balenciaga cut ties with you.According to Women’s Wear Daily.
In their lengthy memo, Vizic, Sacho and Tenley delve into the history of antisemitism.
“Kanye is a music producer and sampler. Last week he sampled and remixed a classic tune that has charted for 3,000 years — the lie that Jews are evil and plot to control the world for their own benefit. The song was performed acapella in the days of the pharaohs, Babylon, and Rome, went acoustically with the Spanish Inquisition and the Pale of Settlement in Russia, and Hitler took the song electric. I helped bring it into the mainstream,” he wrote.
Your talent agency, CAA, has also dropped it. The news comes after a company-wide memo from UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer condemned UTA’s antisemitism on Monday and the finished documentary. You were briefly a client but returned to CAA after a year.
Others in Hollywood, including Ye’s estranged wife, Kim Kardashian, and other members of his family have also condemned antisemitism. Protesters waved a banner praising you on a Los Angeles overpass on Saturday.
