Kim Kardashian is standing in solidarity with the Jewish community.

After her estranged husband, Kanye West, shared an antisemitic message on Twitter earlier this month, the SKIMS CEO posted a statement condemning his remarks.

"Hate speech is never OK or excusable," she wrote on her Instagram Stories Oct. 24. "I stand together with the Jewish community and call on the terrible violence and hateful rhetoric towards them to come to an immediate end."

Kim's statement comes more than two weeks after Ye—with whom she shares children North, 9, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 3—tweeted Oct. 8 that he was going to go "death con 3 on Jewish people." The tweet was subsequently removed from the social media platform and the Yeezy founder's account was locked for violating Twitter's policies. (The Twitter controversy came just hours after he was locked out of his Instagram account with Meta also citing violation of policies.)

Following the "All Falls Down" rapper's remarks, people were seen displaying banners in support of his message across the highways in Los Angeles Oct. 22, per CNN. The act prompted several stars to speak out against the hate that has been shown against the Jewish community.

The following day, Jessica Seinfeld shared a message to Instagram that read, "I support my Jewish friends and the Jewish people." The cookbook author captioned the Oct. 23 post, "If you don't know what to say, you can say this on your feed."


In response to her post, several stars shared the message on their Instagram Stories, including Kim's sisters Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner, and her mom, Kris Jenner

E! News previously reached out to Ye's team for a response and has not heard back.
