Rapper Wiley's Twitter account has been suspended after anti-Semitic posts.
Rapper Wiley's Twitter account has been temporarily locked after a long series of anti-Semitic posts.

Why did rapper Wiley post a series of anti-Semitic rants?

Wiley has been suspended from Instagram and Twitter but many feel they were slow to act
The rapper Wiley has been condemned for sharing conspiracy theories and insults about Jewish people in a series of social media posts. He's one of several rappers in recent weeks accused of anti-Semitism. 

The British Home secretary is demanding answers from Twitter and Instagram on why the posts were not removed more quickly. 

Nadine Batchelor-Hunt, a Black-Jewish journalist, called out Wiley's antisemitism and became a target of one of his posts. 

She tells us that rappers like Wiley risk causing a divide between the Black and Jewish communities, with racists being the only beneficiaries.
