Famous American rapper, Kanye Omari West, popularly known as Kanye West or Ye, has finally tendered a public apology to the Jewish community over his anti-Semitic comments.

This is coming one year after the singer declared war on the Jewish community following his controversial Paris Fashion Week show, where he showcased his White Lives Matter shirts.

DAILY POST reports that Kanye had in October 2022 lost lucrative contracts with Adidas and Balenciaga led to losing his billionaire status.

He was also banned from X platform and Instagram after saying he was going to ‘go death on 3 on Jewish people’ in a tweet.

In a new development on his Instagram page on Tuesday, December 26 2023, the 46-year-old, however, posted a message written in Hebrew which translates to: ‘I sincerely apologise to the Jewish community for any unintended outburst caused by my words or actions.

‘It wasn’t my intention to hurt or demean, and I deeply regret any pain I may have caused. I’m committed to starting with myself and learning from this experience to ensure greater sensitivity and understanding in the future.

“Your forgiveness is important to me, and I’m committed to making amends and promoting unity.”
