Kanye West: ‘Jonah Hill made me like Jewish people again’

Kanye West seemingly walked back his campaign of antisemitic hatred (although there’s no word if he’s still a fan of Hitler) after watching actor Jonah Hill on 21 Jump Street.

In a post to Instagram, West shared an image of the 2012 film’s poster to Instagram alongside a caption that read: “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 people,” he wrote. “No Christian can be labeled antisemite knowing Jesus is Jew.”

“Thank you Jonah Hill I love you,” he added.


West was declared ‘Antisemite Of The Year’ by the watchdog group StopAntisemitism in response to his hatred of Jews and comments about Hitler. It’s gonna take more than a shout-out to Jonah Hill to clean all that up.
