Van Jones is speaking up in Kanye’s behalf to the Jewish community for his latest comments that give regard to Hitler and has apologized for him. He says that “silence is over” in regards to the Black community allowing Kanye’s words to pass without shutting him down.
“We feel awful as long as we’re turning against each other. We feel awful. But when we come together, we’re awesome. And we’re going to be awesome together.” he said in the speech.
He continues, “The reason this country is a democracy at all is because Black and Jewish people have loved each other, and helped each other, and supported each other, and stood up for each other.”
This all comes after Kanye has spoken on Hitler in a different view point that seemingly praised him, that in turn, hurt the Jewish community further.
In latest news between Kanye and Kim Kardashian, Kanye has appeared on Alex Jones’ segment InfoWars where he has spoken about his presidential run, Hitler, and his divorce from Kim Kardashian.

“Hulu does not love you, Kim. Disney does not love you, Kim. Come home, Kim. Come home to Christ. Go to God. Go to Jesus.” he said.
He continued, “Or, marry somebody great. Go marry Tom Brady, whatever you want to do but get married and use your platform as an influence to keep families together. Don’t let the devil use you.”
This comes after their divorce had been finalized last week where it was settled that he will have to cough pay $200K monthly for child support along with gaining equal access of their children.

TMZ reports that the women had filed a joint lawsuit in New York, where they have accused Cosby of assault, battery, infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment, and names NBCUniversal as being complicit.
Jordan Rutsky who serves as representation for the five women has stated:
“It was well-known that Bill Cosby would regularly take young women into his dressing room, and when you read the complaint, you’ll see there were instances where staff saw this happening and even encouraged the plaintiff to submit.”
Bill Cosby’s lawyer Andrew Wyatt has denied the claims where he says it is for a money grab for the women.
“As we have always stated, and now America can see, this isn’t about justice for victims of alleged sexual assault, it’s ALL ABOUT MONEY. We believe that the courts, as well as the court of public opinion, will follow the rules of law and relieve Mr. Cosby of these alleged accusations. Mr. Cosby continues to vehemently deny all allegations waged against him and looks forward to defending himself in court.”
