Antisemitic letters have poured into the Los Angeles Holocaust Museum after Kanye West turned down their offer of a private tour.
The inflow of hostile comments follows a series of antisemitic statements made by West, who officially changed his name to Ye.
In the hope that it might alter his mind, Beth Kean, the CEO of the Los Angeles Holocaust Institution, and the museum gave West a private tour despite his statements in the hope that it might alter his mind.
Kean stated, “We know for certain that education is the greatest catalyst for change. If students and tourists approach the museum as spectators, they will depart as upstanders. We are aware.”
As a response to the offer, Ye is said to have said on the “Drink Champs Podcast” that Planned Parenthood was his Holocaust museum.

According to Kean, since issuing the invitation, the museum’s social media platforms have been inundated with antisemitic hate speech.
“I believe Kanye West has more Twitter followers than there are Jews in the entire globe,” Kean said.
“People like Kanye have a huge platform. He has more than 30 million Twitter followers, and he needs to realise that he needs to use his words to inspire, not to stir up trouble or spread hate, lies, or antisemitism.”
According to experts, the artist’s acts have energised antisemitic conduct, including a stunt on the 405 motorway. On Saturday, a group of individuals displayed both a banner reading “Kanye was correct about the Jews” and Nazi salutes.

Magen Am, a non-profit security organisation, stated that they had intensified patrols in the mostly Jewish communities of the Fairfax District. The organisation of over fifty veterans and volunteers provides safety instruction and armed reaction to risky circumstances.
President and CEO Rabbi Yossi Eilfort stated, “We are doing everything we can to demonstrate that we are fearless.” “We are a powerful community that will not behave like victims.
West has received flak for his antisemitic remarks, and his talent agency, Creative Artists Agency, has terminated him as a client.
