The Holocaust Museum of Los Angeles said it has been flooded with antisemitic messages after artist Kanye West rejected their offer of a private tour.
The influx of hateful messages comes after West, who legally changed his name to Ye, made a series of antisemitic remarks.
Despite his comments, the CEO of the Holocaust Museum of L.A. Beth Kean and the museum offered a private tour to West hoping that it would change his views.
Ye, since we invited you to visit us at Holocaust Museum LA we have received a tremendous amount of social media messages and comments...some filled with hate, threats, and vitriol.
Ye rejected the offer on the "Drink Champs Podcast" and reportedly said Planned Parenthood was his Holocaust museum.
Since extending the invitation, Kean said the museum has been flooded with hateful antisemitic messages on its social media pages.
West has faced public backlash for his comments and was dropped by his talent agency, Creative Artists Agency, because of his antisemitic comments. »
