Kanye West says watching Jonah Hill in 21 Jump street has made him like Jewish people again.
Ye, who has recently made openly antisemitic remarks, said on Instagram, “Watching Jonah Hill in 21 Jump street made me like Jewish people again.”
“No one should take anger against one or two individuals and transform that into hatred towards millions of innocent people. No Christian can be labeled antisemite knowing Jesus is Jew,” the rapper wrote in his return to social media after a series of antisemitic remarks cost him a place on the social media platform.
Ye promoted antisemitic conspiracy theories and praised Hitler on Infowars and befriended notorious far-right extremists last year.
He was forced to cancel a number of scheduled concerts and lost more than a billion dollars in net worth and lucrative brand partnerships with GAP, Adidas, and Balenciaga.
Born to Jewish parents, Hill played the role of Morton Schmidt, a socially awkward yet smart police officer, in the 2012 buddy cop action comedy film 21 Jump Street.
