It took some time – certainly too much – but in the end, Kanye West formally apologized to the Jewish community for his anti-Semitic comments and tweets.
The apologies – of course – came in Kanye’s style, with a post in Hebrew without any translation whatsoever. After previously refusing to apologize, here we are:
“I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for any possible reaction derived from my words and actions. It was not my intention to hurt or disrespect: I am deeply sorry for any pain I may have caused.” And further: “I will commit to learning from this experience to ensure greater sensitivity and understanding in the future. Your forgiveness is important to me. I will strive to make amends and promote greater unity.”
