A leopard does not change his spots.

People deserting his brand must be starting to hit home.

what an embarrassment this man is. in order to become a celebrity, there should be some kind of ability test, like a drivers license, or cooking license, that you need to renew sometimes. A license that deems you adult enough to talk in public. Aware enough not to talk about things you know nothing of, I can only dream,,

"No Christian can be labeled antisemite knowing Jesus is Jew Thank you Jonah Hill I love you."

OK. So he's just learned that Jesus was a "Jew"? In that case we can cut poor Kanye some slack on account of his bad education, like he's never opened a history book plus he's just discovered Jonah Hill is a Jew, too. Someone should whisper in Kanye's ear: "google Auschwitz!" Watch that and get yerself a remedial edoocayshun!"

His business took a massive downturn. His real estate is in poor order.

Lunatic Fringe = Ye

People of faith,have the same outcome,Kanye wonder why he catching so much hell,maybe he should look inward,and see his own personal demons

-7 ( +1 / -8 )

Money draining out from Jewish-owned companies who used to support him.

Never can get over the irony of Christians who hate Jews but follow one as their messiah. With no sense of contradiction.

People will still think you're stupid, Kanye, so why bother changing now?

Cammanteer,Jesus preached christianity in the synagogue,too Jews,at the ire of the Rabbi,they were not happy

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

Was Jesus a Christian? He was born to a Jewish mother, in Galilee, a Jewish part of the world. All of his friends, associates, colleagues, and disciples, all of them, were Jews. He regularly worshipped in Jewish communal worship, what we call synagogues.

Christianity only came after his death.

He was born, lived, and died as a Jew.

By this point Kanye is becoming a parody of himself. In the other hand fame is a terribly serious complication for patients with mental health problems, everything famous people do or say is immediately known and repeated everywhere, and some people will make the problem worse by "supporting" unhealthy actions.

The Buddha was a Hindu but not really. Same with Jesus. He severely disagreed with the direction that Judaism was going on and Judaism didn't change to match his teachings.

His brand is doing very well,

he is currently talking with FENDI to create a lifestyle line for the company.

Irrelevant, since anti-semites determine Jews by lineage, not by what each person believes. Listen to how they frame it - the talk about "the Jews" as a collective. Jesus was born a Jew and all of his first followers were likely Jews as well. People who seek to divide the world into themselves and "the others" will avoid this point, but it is an obvious contradiction for many.

SHOW. Don't tell. Do what Malcolm X did when he left the Nation of Islam's anti-white/antisemitic hate teachings and became a real Muslim. Make a public showing that you truly have a change of heart, Ye.

Saul became the apostle Paul in the New Testament. There are other examples where people change.

It can happen and it does happen sometimes. The next move is yours, Ye.

It's hilarious that Ye references the 10-year-old+ comedy reboot "21 Jump Street" for changing his mind about Jewish people! Before reading this article, I was sure it was going to reference Hill's recent documentary about his relationship with his therapist "Stutz" - https://www.netflix.com/tudum/articles/stutz-the-tools

Yup. Watching 21 Jump Street can make a racist see the error of their ways and see the light. The guy is a complete joke and a fool.

To make it worse, just imagine he actually paid some PR guru to help repair his damaged reputation and this is what they came up with...

Sorry, Kanye, but no one else "likes you again", and you don't stop being a bigot. You'll be railing against the Jews and others again the next time you forget to take your meds as well.

I saw some article recently about a video of some black guy on the New York subway hurling a load of vicious racist abuse at an 8 year old white boy for absolutely no reason. Right-wing commentators were up in arms about it wondering why the mainstream media were not reporting it and so on. I saw the video and my conclusion was the same as my conclusion here with Kanye - they both have mental health issues. There really isn't that much more to be read into or said about either case. I hope they both get the help that they need.

The Bible is anti semitic itself ,it tell of the fate of non believers and Jews , that do not accept Jesus as their lord and savior,that they will perish in a lake of fire,in the book of Revelations Google Book of Revelation Lake Of Fire

Kanye learned you must not criticize or question Gods chosen ones.

Yeah, a fictional TV show. When Malcolm X left the Nation of Islam he already was shedding his racist and hater views. That trip to Mecca where he saw and met real Muslims of every color and race told him everything. And in the final section of his 'Autobiography' he wrote that his friends were Catholic, Baptist, Muslim, Jewish, Buddhist, even atheist. As for ethnicities his friends were Black, Hispanic, East Asian, Arabic and White (his emphasis).

This sounds more like he just wants to recoup his bigtime loss of business $billions. You can't serve God and Mammon/money too, Ye.

I know plenty of mentally/emotionally ill people (veteran and non) who aren't bigots. Don't use bipolar as an excuse for your verbal abuse, Ye.

Right wing commenters only look at their angle and tell you only what they want you to believe. There was a case in NY or NJ state where this Black American thug committed a hate crime on an Orienta;/East Asian woman in an elevator. He called her dirty racist epithets, incl. the 'C-word' (she's not ethnic Chinese but a Filipina. Big difference.). He beat her up so bad she's crippled for life. Her scummy assailant is now serving 15 years in prison. Bigots are bigots and the mainstream media covered this incident.

And presumably left wing commenters absolutely never, ever do that.

Don't know about that particular case. But mentally ill patients have also committed violent crimes or even murder - they end up committed to secure accommodation for mentally ill people rather than put in prison as criminals. Nobody really knows how the brain works and understanding mental illness is not an exact science. Mental illness can manifest itself in all sorts of strange ways - I'm sure in big cities you can see all sorts of examples out on the streets. Shouting any kind of abuse, or just shouting anything at all at a random 8 year old on the train for no reason is not rational behaviour. Did you see that video of Kanye doing the interview where he said some of that stuff about the Nazis with that cover over his head the entire time? Come on, that is not rational behaviour.

Judaism is complicated like that, it's an ethnicity and a religion tied into one. Jesus was ethnically and religiously Jewish but he ultimately split with his faith to create a new one.

There's such a stigma about mental illness around that totally disgusts me. People just say that it 'makes' people do and say stupid things but there's a line where personal attitude and responsibility comes in. Ye has flapped his yap repeatedly with his moronic crap. Kissing trump's butt is not 'mental illness', it's just stupidity. And praising Hitler is just being despicable, not 'mentally ill'. Bashing Jews is just pure hatred.

Hatred is never rational. Mental/emotional illness does not mean that that person is a criminal or an idiot. That's one stigma that needs to be put away for good.

And Ye is a jerk, no matter how you slice it. A jerk is a jerk is a jerk.
