Khloé Kardashian is the first family member to confront Kanye West’s anti-Semitism incident in public.
The 38-year-old republished a 51-year-old remark by Jessica Seinfeld, wife of Jerry Seinfeld, which said, “I support my Jewish friends and the Jewish people.”
Saturday in Los Angeles, banners proclaiming “Kanye is right about the Jews” were hoisted from a motorway. Her post followed these banners.
A group known as the Goyim Defense League, which promotes anti-Jewish conspiracies, appears to be behind the signs, as they were spotted around them in hats and masks while giving Nazi salutes to passing motorists.
Khloé, whose sister Kim was married to Kanye from 2014 to 2022 and has been mum on the rapper’s anti-Semitism tempest, was among a swarm of celebrities who shared and commented on Jessica’s tweet.
Others included Julianne Moore, Amy Schumer, and Jennifer Aniston, who shared a photo of neo-Nazi protesters in Los Angeles superimposed on a throng honoring Adolf Hitler.
The accompanying description stated, “The neo-Nazis are performing the Nazi salute, which was employed during the Holocaust to indicate devotion to Adolf Hitler.”
Sarah Silverman posted a picture of a highway with the caption, “Let me guess: It’s still too early to be terrified,” while actress Florence Pugh described it as “simply horrible.”
Boy George criticized Kim’s silence about Kanye’s anti-Semitic insults as “appalling” in an impassioned statement.
The Culture Club singer, 61, turned to Instagram to criticize Kanye’s ex-wife and urge others to speak out against the rapper, stating in an Instagram video: “I’m kind of appalled that more artists haven’t spoken out against what he’s saying.
“I’m shocked that Kim Kardashian hasn’t weighed in on this discussion, given she has children with Kanye and must, as a mother, know how demoralizing and terrible it must be for Jewish children to hear these vile remarks.
“As a gay guy, I have faced years of bigotry, so the thought of doing that to someone else based on their ethnicity, color, sexual orientation, or gender is f****** abhorrent to me, and it should be abhorrent to you as well.”
