Kanye West, the rapper who goes by the name Ye, has been dropped by the Creative Arts Agency following his anti-Semitic comments on a NewsNation interview with Chris Cuomo. MRC Studio has also scrapped a finished documentary that was made on the rapper.

MRC studio executives Modi Wiczyk, Asif Satchu and Scott Tenley announced in a memo Monday: “We cannot support any content that amplifies his platform.”

Ye was recently restricted from posting on Twitter and Instagram over antisemitic posts that the social networks said violated their policies. He has also suggested slavery was a choice and called the COVID-19 vaccine the “mark of the beast.” Earlier this month, Ye was criticized for wearing a “White Lives Matter” T-shirt to the showing of his latest collection at Paris Fashion Week.

These measures are not the first to be taken against the rapper after his comments. Earlier, he was dropped as a client by JPMorgan Chase while Balenciaga, the Spanish luxury fashion also severed ties with him.

In their lengthy memo, Wiczyk, Satchu and Tenley reach deep into the history of antisemitism.

“Kanye is a producer and sampler of music. Last week he sampled and remixed a classic tune that has charted for over 3000 years — the lie that Jews are evil and conspire to control the world for their own gain. This song was performed acapella in the time of the Pharaohs, Babylon and Rome, went acoustic with The Spanish Inquisition and Russia’s Pale of Settlement, and Hitler took the song electric. Kanye has now helped mainstream it in the modern era,” they wrote.

West has also recently claimed that it was he who had initially pitched the idea of Django Unchained to Jamie Foxx and Quentin Tarantino. Neither Foxx nor the Pulp Fiction director have yet replied to West’s claims.
