Wiley Disses Drake, Dropped By Management For Anti-Semitic Tweets
Wiley Management Anti-Semitic Tweets: Wiley has been dropped by his management after he dissed Drake & went on an anti-semitic rant on Twitter during the week. The grime legend has always been one to be very vocal about his opinions especially on music matters. However, the twitter community did not find it funny, him likening the Jewish community to the KKK.
“There are 2 sets of people who nobody has really wanted to challenge #Jewish & #KKK but being in business for 20 years you start to undestand [sic] why … Red Necks Are the KKK and Jewish people are the Law…Work that out,” he wrote on Twitter.
In the course of his rant, he propagated the stereotype that Jewish people control the music industry, alongside other spheres of society. He also managed to drag Drake into the mess.
He put out some tweets that suggested that Drake became a global sensation because he’s Jewish and not because of his talent.
“Infact the system was set up perfectly for someone like Drake,” he tweeted. “@Drake Represents everything I am talking about… Get that anti semetic bullshit out of here and take @drake with you on god.”
The police have also launched an investigation into his tweets as possible anti-semitic hate speech. Wiley was later suspended from Twitter for about 12 hours before he doubled down on his statements.
BBC has now reported that his management team has officially dropped him.
“Following Wiley’s antisemitic tweets today we at @A_ListMGMT have cut all ties with him. There is no place in society for antisemitism,” Mr Woolf tweeted. “To be very clear here. I do not support or condone what Wiley has said today online in any way shape or form.”
