Scott Disick defends 'my Jews' in wake of Kanye antisemitism

Disick, who was raised Jewish and wears a Magen David, made the comments at the end of last year


Scott Disick, the ex of Kourtney Kardashian, has made statements seemingly condemning Kanye West's antisemitism in the latest episode of the Kardashian reality show.

In the latest episode of The Kardashians, Disick proudly shows his Magen David necklace, while chatting to Kris Jenner about his son Mason's bar mitzvah.

The footage was filmed in late 2022, around the time that West began making public antisemitic comments.

While Disick doesn't mention the rapper by name, in response to Kris Jenner complimenting his Star of David necklace, he replies "I have to represent for my Jews these days,” indirectly addressing West’s controversial comments. 

Jenner goes on to say she is “beyond excited” for her grandson, Mason’s bar mitzvah.

She said: “People ask me all the time, what was my favourite part in all of our episodes, all of our shows combined, and my answer will always be when Mason was born…

"I can't believe that he's going to have a bar mitzvah, that 13 years have gone by since that time. It's just remarkable to me, to look back. That seems like yesterday,”

Last year, seemingly in response to West's public outbursts Kim tweeted: “I stand together with the Jewish community.” In response to West’s publication of Anti-Semitic views, and additionally touched on West earlier, in this season of ‘The Kardashians’, stating she was “tired of being Kanye's clean-up crew,” and that she needed to let him hit “rock bottom” on his own.

Starting in November last year, West was widely criticised for his string of antisemitic outbursts in a series of offensive incidents late last year. In a series of tirades that saw the rapper lose endorsement deals with Adidas, Balenciaga and Gap, he made a series of threats, saying he would go "death con three" on Jews.

During an interview with US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, he also praised Adolf Hitler and admitted he "sees good things" in the Nazi leader.
