Screenshots have recently emerged of alleged text conversations between Kanye West and Sean “Diddy” Combs, and according to Haaretz, West – who now goes by Ye – made anti-Semitic statements in a post that has since been deleted.
After that, Ye then went to his social media to declare “death con 3 on Jewish people,” leading to both his Twitter and Instagram restricting his accounts.
Since his comments, the rapper has been going through a wave of criticism, and joining the party was none other than MJF, who is Jewish. On Sunday, the AEW superstar took to his Twitter to give his thoughts on the situation with West. Documented by Wrestling Headlines, MJF’s tweets have since been deleted.
“Kanye calling Jewish people horrifying doesn’t shock me. What shocks me is how little we as a society talk about antisemitism. To put things into perspective. Slavery was very recent and the plight of POC is still rampant. End of slavery –1865. End of Holocaust — 1945.”
After MJF tweeted his comments, wrestling fans criticized the “Salt of the Earth,” accusing him of breaking kayfabe for going after Ye. However, the heel stood his ground and explained not only why he was upset, but why everybody should be upset as well.
“People tweeting this is out of character, I don’t play a character. Never have. I’m a Jew. I’m angry. And you should be angry too.”
This isn’t the first time that MJF has spoken out against anti-Semitism, talking about his own experiences in the past, including on AEW TV. One example was in a feud against CM Punk, where the “Devil” said he dealt with bigotry when he was young and that he was bullied in school for being a Jew.
