American rapper Ice Cube has come under fire in recent days for posting anti-Semitic material on Twitter amid the protests and riots that have spread across the country.
On May 11, Ice Cube posted a photo that portrayed him with Louis Farrakhan, with the caption: "I’d like to wish a Happy Birthday to the Honorable Minister Farrakhan"
The Southern Poverty Law Center has characterized Farrakhan as blaming "Jews for the slave trade, plantation slavery, Jim Crow, sharecropping and general black oppression. Farrakhan’s tone grew more belligerent in June 2010, when he sent letters to several leaders of the Jewish community as well as the Southern Poverty Law Center demanding that they acknowledge the evils they have perpetrated and that they work to further Farrakhan’s goals. The letter ended with a threat to “ruin and destroy your power and influence here and throughout the world” if his terms were not met."
To top this off, Ice Cube continued with his anti-Semitic sentiments by posting a picture on Twitter depicting Jews sitting in front of a table held up by black individuals, with an Illuminati pyramid in the background.
The tweet read: "F**K THE NEW NORMAL UNTIL THEY FIX THE OLD NORMAL!"
This comes as a plethora of anti-Semitic messages have went viral on social media, including a woman who was caught on video, saying: "I hate Jews, I hate Jews, suck my d*ck!"
And then again on Saturday, where a man threatened to burn down the Diamond District, a which is comprised primarily of Jewish-owned businesses.
The man was reportedly arrested after making those comments, according to Fox News National Correspondent Jacqui Heinrich.
