Chris Brown denied accusations that he’s antisemitic after a video of him dancing with Kanye West to the rapper’s song containing an offensive lyric about Jews went viral.
“In no way shape or form am I antisemetic [sic] !!!” Brown, 34, wrote in a statement on his Instagram Story Sunday, according to screenshots obtained by XXL.
“I’m pro life and I make music for the entire world!!!!!!” he continued. “So please do not get tricked into thinking I spread hate or am kool with it! This [is] for the million of young kids that look up to [me] and [may] be confused.”
The “Run It!” singer also clarified that he is not Muslim or Jewish, as if that would absolve him of any bigotry claims.
“Let me make this perfectly clear before y’all try to use me as a pawn,” he wrote.
“Ima Piru, I aint Muslim or Jewish so don’t start no s–t wont be no s–t!!! Im trying to be peaceful but please do not wake up the demon in me. Go on about your f–king day.”
Piru is not a religion but rather a subset of the Bloods gang alliance, an organized crime group in the US.
As Page Six previously reported, Brown and West, 46, were captured dancing to the Yeezy founder’s new track “Vultures” with Ty Dolla $ign.
In the controversial song, Ye raps the lyrics, “How I’m antisemitic? I just f–ked a Jewish bitch.”
Horrified netizens took to social media to accuse both West and Brown of being antisemitic.
“What’s more sickening? The lyrics … Or the fact that both Kanye West and @chrisbrownofficial find it hysterical?” Jewish businesswoman Tanya Zuckerbrot wrote on her Instagram account.
She added, “Sick, masochistic, antisemitic f–ks.”
“Let the record industry chew on this. Let them never EVER work again,” a second critic wrote on Instagram.
“Chris Brown and Kanye West: the two most problematic rappers of all time 🤮,” a third said.
Others called the hip-hop artists “heinous,” “disgusting” and “disgraceful.”
Meanwhile, West has faced several accusations of antisemitism that put his career on hold and even resulted in the end of various partnerships.

The “Flashing Lights” rapper was infamously canceled after going on several antisemitic tirades last year. He was dragged for tweeting that he wanted to go “death con 3 on Jewish people” and later said he wasn’t sorry for his hateful words.
His social media accounts had also been restricted as a result of his harmful rhetoric toward Jews. His MRC-produced documentary was canned and he was dropped by his former agency, CAA.
