Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, apologized in Hebrew to the Jewish community for his “unanticipated” anti-Semitic “outburst” earlier this month.
You posted the apology on his Instagram page early Tuesday morning.
“I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for my unexpected outburst caused by my words or actions. My intention was not to hurt or disrespect, and I deeply regret any pain I may have caused.” , he said in a statement written in Hebrew.
“I am committed to starting with myself and learning from this experience to ensure greater sensitivity and understanding in the future,” the message continues.
The 46-year-old rapper ended his message by saying that forgiveness “is important to me” and that he was “committed to making amends and promoting unity.”
His apology came weeks after videos showed Ye giving an expletive-laden speech about the legal issues of Hitler, Jesus and Donald Trump to a room full of people.
“Because you got a photo ID, are you with us now?” Ye asked, referring to Trump’s arrest. “No…what are you going to do for us?”
At one point during his outburst, he complained about co-parenting with ex-wife Kim Kardashian.
“Jesus Christ, Hitler, Ye. Third party. Sponsor this. … Sponsor this,” he said in a video widely shared on social media and obtained by TMZ. “I don’t care about life or death, I have had visits with my children. I have no say in it.”
Ye’s speech wasn’t the first time he found himself in hot water. The rapper, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, had his Twitter and Instagram accounts suspended over anti-Semitic comments and was dropped by companies including Adidas, Balenciaga and famed talent agency CAA.
