According to a report from Breitbart News, Jewish Israeli UFC lightweight Natan Levy has issued a challenge to Kanye West over the hip hop artist’s recent anti-semitic rants that included professing his love for Hitler.
“If you’ve got a problem with me or my people, come see me, bro,” Levy says.
From Breitbart News:
Asked during a post-fight press conference backstage what he — as one who “represents Israel” as an athlete from the Jewish state — makes of “everything happening” in the country in light of West’s recent antisemitic statements, Levy expressed “pity” for those mired in hatred.
“I think life is too short to hate,” he said.
“So to all these hateful people: it sucks for you, I pity you,” he added.
Addressing West directly, the 31-year-old Levy — who picked up his second win inside the Octagon on Saturday — said, “If you’ve got a problem with me or my people, come see me, bro.”
Subsequently, Levy was asked if he had noticed that West ’s rhetoric has emboldened many others to repeat similar hateful messages online, to which he responded, “Trust me, I’ve noticed it … I get a lot of ‘lovely’ DMs all the time.”
