UFC News round up: Jewish fighter blames Kanye West for all the hatred
Kanye West received much international attention for his obscene comments, which led numerous well-known people to criticize him. One of them was the UFC’s Jewish fighter Nathan Levy, who gained notoriety by defeating Genaro Valdez on fight night.
Natan Levy, 31, was interviewed on Monday by TMZ Sports about the reaction to his remarks in which he called Ye out and told him to address him if he had any problems. Meanwhile. Levy, a Jew who competes in the UFC, alleges that after calling out West for his ongoing antisemitism, he has received much more hate and support.
Grammy Award-winning musician Kanye West, often known as Ye, was the reason he frequently appeared on the front pages of newspapers for his intelligence and musical prowess. That is not the case right now, though, since Ye has been in problems due to his antisemitic and pro-white nationalist remarks for some time. He is undoubtedly experiencing the worst phase of his career, in which everything he says is obscene.
