Then, the Jerusalem Post He noted that he posted photos of himself on Twitter with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook owns Instagram) and mocked Zuckerberg, who also happens to be Jewish.
West then posted the offending tweet on Saturday night, threatening Jews and claiming he can’t be anti-Semitic because “black people are actually Jews” — a belief shared by the Black Jewish Israeli movement, some of which whose racist and anti-Semitic ideologies are embraced.
Footage of Kanye West’s interview with Tucker Carlson was also leaked in which he appeared to espouse ideologies related to the Black Jewish Israelites, who claim that black people are the real Jews.
