Kanye West Apologizes in Hebrew Amid Repeated Antisemitic Comment 

Kanye West, who has experienced outrage for making anti-Semitic remarks on multiple occasions, issued a public apology in Hebrew on Tuesday.  

"I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for my unplanned outburst caused by my words or actions, it was not my intention to hurt or disrespect, 

I deeply regret any pain I may have caused," he said in a message posted on Instagram (and translated into English).  

"I am committed to starting with myself and learning from this experience to ensure greater sensitivity and understanding in the future," the 46-year-old founder of Yeezus said. 

He concluded by saying that forgiveness "is important to me" and that he is "committed to making amends and promoting unity." 

West's comments came two weeks after TMZ released video of the "Famous" rapper yelling anti-Semitic slurs during a 10-minute rant at a private gathering in Las Vegas.  

The post comes only days before West is expected to debut new music.  In response to West's statement, the Anti-Defamation League, a non-profit advocacy 

organization, said, "After causing untold damage by using his vast influence and platform to poison countless minds with vicious antisemitism and hatred, an 

apology in Hebrew may be the first step on a long journey towards making amends to the Jewish community and all those who he has hurt."
