Anti-Semitic message with reference to E projected onto Florida Stadium | WGN 720 Radio

(NewsNation) — An anti-Semitic message referencing E, formerly known as Kanye West, was projected onto a Florida football stadium Saturday night.

In accordance with video posted on Twitter, the words “Kanye is right about the Jews” were seen at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida during a game between the University of Florida and the University of Georgia. Sports fans like Preston Feiler noticed the projection.

“Last night, as I was leaving the stadium, a laser scroll was fired into the back of the jumbotron. It said, “Kanye is right about the Jews.” The last thing my son and I expected to see on the way out of the stadium,” Feiler tweeted.

Another Twitter user posted a video shows the view from her hotel room, which appeared to be the same message scrolling through another building.

University of Florida and University of Georgia issued a joint statement On Sunday morning, condemning the projected message.

“We strongly condemn the anti-Semitic hate speech projected outside TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville following the Florida-Georgia football game on Saturday night and other anti-Semitic messages that have appeared in Jacksonville. The University of Florida and the University of Georgia jointly condemn these and all acts of anti-Semitism and other forms of hatred and intolerance. We are proud to be home to strong and thriving Jewish communities at UGA and UF, and together we stand against hate,” the universities wrote.

It is not clear how the message referring to Ye appeared on the side of the stadium.

The award-winning producer and fashion designer is facing backlash for his recent anti-Semitic comments on social media. In an interview with NewsNation’s Chris CuomoYeh said he did not believe in the term “anti-Semitic” and insisted he was not “recanting” his comments.

“The Jewish people of whom I speak must not understand. And that’s a privilege I’m not going to let go. When I put on a T-shirt with the inscription “White Lives Matter”, the Jewish underground media mafia already started attacking me,” said E.

Social media giants Twitter and Instagram recently suspended Ye following threatening posts. When asked if he believed his words violated guidelines on social media platforms, he replied: “I don’t believe in that term … I also consider myself Jewish, so I can’t really be anti-Semitic.”

Alan Dershowitz, a legal scholar who has written extensively about the American Jewish experience, fears that E’s comments could influence the political views of others.

“We’re seeing a tremendous increase not only in anti-Semitic actions, but also in anti-Semitic attitudes, and it’s coming from young people. And the youth is our future. If there is bigotry against any group, it just allows bigotry against every group,” Dershowitz said in interview on “CUOMO.”

When it comes to E’s comments, some point to his state of mind. Others have suggested that his anti-Semitic comments are not related to mental health issues, but to this the rapper could strategize as it is set to acquire right-wing social media platform Parler.

Ye said he wanted to buy the app because “people are using their technology to filter out any messages they don’t agree with.”

If so, comments will no doubt follow cost him several business partnerships. Talent agency Ye’s, Adidas, Balenciaga, Foot Locker, Gap, JPMorgan and Chase, MRC Entertainment, TJ Maxx and Vogue are among the growing list of companies that have ended or canceled their celebrity affiliations.
