Netflix Won’t Take Down Kanye West’s Documentary, “Jeen-Yuhs,” Despite Anti-Semitic Remarks
In light of Kanye West’s recent anti-Semitic remarks, Netflix has stated that they will not be removing his documentary “Jeen-Yuhs.” According to TMZ, the streaming behemoth has chosen to maintain the three-part documentary series because it has no financial dealings with West and since there was no anti-Semitic language in it.
“Jeen-Yuhs” which was released earlier this year, showcased both West’s personal and professional lives. Netflix representatives added that despite other high-profile stars getting into trouble, they didn’t delete the movies they were in. A number of West’s other partners, including Balenciaga, Vogue, and his legal team, have severed relations with the “Heartless” rapper, and celebrities have been pleading with Adidas to do the same.
Adidas, which has been producing and selling Ye’s Yeezy line for for ten years, put their relationship with West “under review,” although they haven’t yet addressed his terrible comments. “I can say anti-Semitic things, and Adidas can’t drop me. Now what? Now what?” West acknowledged in a current episode of “Drink Champs,” which has since been removed.
The sports clothing company has not yet commented on the controversy, but on Monday, West’s estranged family criticized the “Donda” rapper on social media. In an Instagram Story, his ex-wife Kim Kardashian criticized the father of her four children and stated that hate speech is “never OK or excusable.”
