Among other artists, Disturbed frontman David Draiman and Kiss frontman Paul Stanley have called out Kanye West over some anti-Semitic comments he has made over on his Twitter.

While his tweet has since been deleted, as reported by Blabbermouth, West mentioned comments such as “going death con 3 [sic] On JEWISH PEOPLE.” He also added, “You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.”

This concerning tweet has alarmed and upset many folks, including that of some big name rockers. Taking to his Twitter account, Kiss frontman Paul Stanley shared a photo of Kanye West and then wrote the following:

“Mental Illness IS a disease but should NEVER be used to minimize the danger of hate speech, advocating anti-semitism and violence against religions or ethnicities. We have found ways over centuries to rationalize this behavior and viewed the atrocities that followed. SPEAK UP!”

Disturbed singer David Draiman also brought up West over on his Twitter, and spoke about other recent issues pertaining to anti-Semitism that have taking place:

“Between @joerogan not calling @rogerwaters out on his antisemitic bullshit, @kanyewest going on an antisemitic rant, and then @elonmusk congratulating his friend (Kanye) on his @twitter reinstatement, it’s been a rough week for us Jews. #Antisemitism”.
