Kanye West ‘Vultures’ livestream shut down at mention of ‘antisemite’

Kanye West hosted a livestream listening party for his unreleased album Vultures, but the live feed went dark shortly after the scandal-plagued rapper said he was an “anti-Semite.”

Streaming service Veeps, which broadcast the event, stopped its feed just one second after the controversial lyrics, according to a recording that circulated on social media.

Fans have speculated that Yeh may have broken some kind of agreement with Veeps that allowed the company to immediately shut down the livestream. TMZ first reported.

Representatives for Veeps did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

The title song of “Vulture” also included the despicable lyric, “Why am I an anti-Semite?” I just had sex with a Jewish man. ”

Prior to the event, Ye deleted his Instagram account and shared a photo of the number 1. This is likely a reference to the first volume of Vulture, which was previously announced to be available digitally on February 9th.

However, the American Jewish Committee is one of the prominent Jewish organizations that has taken issue with the anti-Semitic lyrics scattered throughout the album “Vultures”.

Richard Hershhout, a spokesperson for the American Jewish Committee, told TMZ that the song “fans the flames of anti-Semitism and spreads such bile to millions of believers, especially in the Jewish community.” “This cannot be tolerated at this difficult and dangerous time for all.”

Hirschhout accused the 46-year-old rapper of being an “unrepentant anti-Semite and an obvious misogynist,” given Ye’s history of public outbursts of anti-Semitism. , added that the lyrics are not surprising.

The line dates back to an apology Ye issued to fans via Instagram Story in December 2023, in which he promised to “work to make amends and foster unity” with his Jewish fanbase. .

“I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for any unintended violence caused by my words and actions,” the letter, written in Hebrew, said.

In the wake of this tweet, Adidas and Gap each ended their Yeezy partnerships with the controversial celebrity, resulting in him losing his billionaire status.
