Natan Levy has called out Kanye West for his anti-Semitic comments.

West, a hip-hop mogul who isn’t afraid to speak his mind, has continuously received backlash for negative comments about the Jewish community. ‘Ye’ has recently been accused of supporting Adolph Hitler, including rumors of interest in naming an album after Hitler. The controversial rapper has also spread anti-Semitic viewpoints leading to his removal on several social media platforms. 

Levy, a UFC lightweight born in Israel, has fired back at ‘Ye.’ The 31-year-old karate specialist secured a unanimous decision win against Genaro Valdez at UFC Orlando and had this to say during his post-fight media interview:

“I think life is too short to hate, so, to all these hateful people, it sucks for you — I pity you. Other than that, you know what, Kanye West, if you’ve got a problem with me or my people, come see me, bro.”

Levy advanced his promotional record to 2-1 after beating Valdez at UFC Orlando. The 31-year-old made the most of his post-fight media interview because the UFC skipped his in-ring interview due to time restrictions. 

Natan Levy opens up about anti-Semitic social media interactions

MMA fighters, similar to all professional athletes, have to deal with negative comments on social media. During the same post-fight media interview, Natan Levy revealed that Kanye West wasn’t the only person exposing the UFC fighter to anti-Semitic viewpoints. Levy had this to say when asked about seeing more anti-Semitic comments on social media to support ‘Ye’:

“I’ve noticed it — I get a lot of lovely DMs all the time. I am Jewish. It’s what I am. It’s what I was born. I’m very proud of it, and I will fight for it. I will fight for my people, in the Octagon or wherever need be. I will not stand for antisemitism. I won’t stand for any racism. Not around me. Don’t bully anybody around me, or I’m going to find you.”

Levy is currently the only Israeli-born UFC fighter. Therefore, he might feel obligated to use his platform to help end antisemitism. It’s a shame he couldn’t use his in-ring TV time to spread his message. That said, Levy should have more opportunities to spread awareness after winning his second consecutive fight in the Octagon.
