Kanye West Addresses Accusations of Anti-Semitism

Kanye West calls his November comment "Black people don't have the same level of connections as Jewish people," an "ignorant compliment."

Last month the Anti-Defamation League accused Kanye West of anti-Semitism, for saying "Black people don't have the same level of connections as Jewish people," during a November interview with New York's Power 106. Today, talking with Chicago's B96, Kanye addressed the ADL's accusations. "I thought that I was giving a compliment, but if anything it came off more ignorant…It was kinda like an ignorant compliment," he said. Everyone laughed while Kanye continued, "I thought by saying like everyone had money, that was a compliment…So maybe I would take that statement away."
