Rapper Willie shares abuse of Jewish critics on Facebook after anti-Semitic tirade

Facebook has temporarily stopped rapper Willie after sharing abuses of posts aimed at his Jewish critics.

His comments came after an anti-Semitic tirade on Twitter on Friday.

The gloomy artist posted on Facebook under his name Richard Kylie Cowie, revealed the BBC.

He specifically mentioned Jewish celebrities ̵

1; including Lord Alan Zahar, comedian David Badiel and BBC presenter Emma Barnett.

A Facebook spokesman said the posts violated her policies and blocked access to the grim artist’s Facebook and Instagram accounts. His accounts have not been downloaded. The BBC contacted Wiley for comment.

The posts were aimed at abusing Jewish celebrities who expressed their concern about Wiley’s tweets. Several mentioned “Golders Green” – a neighborhood in London with a large Jewish community.

Wiley wrote, “Listen, Golders Green, call my sister and let’s meet right now”; “David Badiel come and talk to my face”; and “Who called the police? Are you from Golders Green? I’m coming to sit with you … A maze you can come because you’ve forgotten what color you are.”

A number of comments on the publications include anti-Semitic abuse.

Media captionRapper Wiley’s Twitter account has been suspended following anti-Semitic posts.

The latest comments were shared on Wiley’s personal Facebook profile, not on his official fan page. Although they had a relatively small commitment – less than 100 likes and comments each – they were visible to the public.

Several of Wiley’s tweets were downloaded and his Twitter account was suspended after he entered an anti-Semitic tirade on Friday. One tweet read, “I don’t care about Hitler, I care about black people,” and compared the Jewish community to the Ku Klux Klan. Most of the posts spread anti-Semitic tropes.

He also had a number of posts deleted from Instagram, but his accounts are still live.

A number of prominent users called for a 48-hour boycott of Twitter, which began on Monday, saying the social network was not taking action fast enough and should ban Willie permanently.
