Kanye West has not apologised for his antisemitic comments.

Kanye West has not apologised for his antisemitic comments.

Last weekend, the hip-hop star's Instagram and Twitter accounts were suspended after he posted comments accusing "Jewish people" of telling him to call and "threaten or influence me," a clear reference to fellow rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs.

He then tweeted that he was "going death con 3 (sic) On JEWISH PEOPLE," doubling down on his earlier antisemitic remarks.

Jennifer Aniston, David Schwimmer, Jamie Lee Curtis, John Legend, and Jack Antonoff, among others, have all spoken out against the comments, as have leaders of Jewish community organisations, but the musician has refused to apologise.

West told Page Six as he exited the Nashville, Tennessee, screening of his conservative friend Candace Owens' new anti-Black Lives Matter documentary on Wednesday night: "Apparently, it's antisemitic to criticise someone's business practises. I'm relieved that we've moved over that stigma and can now discuss topics such as having a bank account closed without shame."
With the latter comment, West appeared to be speaking directly to JP Morgan Chase's top brass.
The bank's executives reportedly severed relations with the Jesus Walks musician after the scandal.

However, when West tried to personally address the bank, he was supposedly sidelined by a passing truck and instead decided to schedule a "other time" to do so.

After the backlash on social media, an unaired portion of an interview with Fox News was leaked, and more antisemitic comments from West were revealed.

In an earlier tweet, Owens claimed to have seen a communication from JP Morgan Chase instructing him to move his Yeezy company accounts elsewhere by November. Owens shot to celebrity after supporting U.S. President Donald Trump, and is now a big personality in right-wing media.

Earlier this month, the host of The Daily Wire appeared at Paris Fashion Week in a "White Lives Matter" t-shirt, helping to launch West into his new round of controversy.
