One of the banners cited the passage Revelations 3/9, “Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.

The mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti tweeted, “There is no place for discrimination or prejudice in Los Angeles.”

Kanye West, the rapper and producer, who has legally changed his to Ye West.  Ye has a past of saying controversial anti-semitic remarks dating back to 2013. Ye has recently been suspended from both Twitter and Instagram for all of the harmful things being said. Back in 2018 Kanye had some of his employees sign NDA’s or nondisclosure agreements so his anti-semitic and pro-Nazi rants wouldn’t be exposed.

A former TMZ employee has revelead that Ye was making positive comments about Hitler in a interview. The employee, Van Lathan Jr., said that Ye said something to the extent of, “I love Hitler, I love Nazi’s.” and that his claims were edited out for mysterious reasons later on.

Recently in an interview Ye was ranting about the issues he has with our society. A segment from a CNN.com article, Ye says in that interview “I can say anti-semitic s*** and Adidas can’t drop me.” Multiple writers put Adidas in the hot seat and they succumbed to pressure because shortly after Adidas said in a statement “Adidas does not tolerate antisemitism and any other sort of hate speech.” Ye’s brand Yeezy was shortly dropped from the brand after that statement.
