In December of that year, the rapper explained that he saw “good things” about Nazi Germany dictator Adolf Hitler. Additionally, Ye expressed that there were “a lot of things” he loved about the extremist.
Kanye West Shares His Apology
On Tuesday, December 26, Kanye West took to his official Instagram account. The 46-year-old father of four posted a photo of a grey backdrop that featured words written in Hebrew.

“I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for any unintended outburst caused by my words or actions. It was not my intention to hurt or disrespect, and I deeply regret any pain I may have caused. I am committed to starting with myself and learning from this experience to ensure greater sensitivity and understanding in the future,” the rapper’s message reads.
