21 Jump Street directors react to Kanye West saying he ‘likes Jewish people again' after watching Jonah Hill in movie

21 Jump Street directors react to Kanye West saying he ‘likes Jewish people again' after watching Jonah Hill in movie

There's no easy response.

21 Jump Street directors have replied to Kanye West's claim that Jonah Hill's performance in the film made him 'like Jewish people again'.

It's disappointing that Kanye's bizarre and often anti-Semitic comments about Jewish people are unsurprising at this point.

The rapper had thankfully taken some time off social media as of late, after posting a string of hateful and genuinely concerning statements about Adolf Hitler and Jewish people.

But this week he made an unexpected and widely unwanted return to Instagram - only to make a very strange comment about Jonah Hill.

Sharing a photo of the DVD cover of 21 Jump Street to his otherwise empty Instagram account, Ye wrote: "Watching Jonah Hill in 21 Jump Street made me like Jewish people again.

"No one should take anger against one or two individuals and transform that into hatred towards millions of innocent people.

"No Christian can be labeled antisemite knowing Jesus is Jew. Thank you Jonah Hill I love you."

While it's good to see that Ye has had a much-needed change of heart, the inspiration coming from a Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum 2012 comedy definitely came out of left field.

And the film's directors think so too.

Taking to Twitter with a screenshot of Kanye's odd post, Christopher Miller wrote: "Um... thanks for watching?"

Meanwhile, Phil Lord tweeted: "Laughter is the best medicine."

Back in 2022, West was banned from both Twitter and Instagram for his anti-Semitic remarks, including one particularly shocking claim that he was going to go ‘death con 3 [sic] on JEWISH PEOPLE’.

Instagram confirmed at the time that they had ‘deleted content from @kanyewest for violating our policies and placed a restriction on the account’.

The rapper was eventually allowed back on Twitter after Elon Musk became the CEO following his takeover, but Musk himself later said that West's account had been ‘restored by Twitter before the acquisition’ and that ‘they did not consult with or inform me’.

Musk did then have to take action against Ye after further comments caused scandal.

“I tried my best," tweeted Musk after being left with no choice but to ban Ye. “Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended."

While Ye seems to be resolving his social media ban, he's still at risk of being banned from all of Australia because of his remarks.

Whether or not his newfound love for Jonah Hill will help him out in that department remains to be seen.

UNILAD has contacted Instagram for a comment on West's latest post.
