Natan Levy has a message for Kanye West following his second straight octagon win.
Levy defeated Genaro Valdez via unanimous decision at UFC Orlando on Saturday. After the fight, Levy spoke with reporters to recap his victory and was asked about West’s recent antisemitic comments — even going as far as praising Hitler’s Nazi rule.
” I believe life is too short for hate. So to all those hateful people, it sucks you – you pity me,” Levy said backstage to MMA Fighting.
“KanyeWest, if there’s a problem with me and my people, please come to see me.”
Earlier this week, West, also known as Ye, appeared on The Alex Jones Show in a viral interview where he commended the Nazi party and Hitler’s leadership, even taking shots at Jewish media for “[making] us feel like the Nazis and Hitler have never offered anything of value to the world,” before declaring, “we’ve got to stop dissing the Nazis all of the time.”
The comments have added to a trend from West that has continued on over the last several months, and has since led to him getting suspended from Twitter after posting a swastika.
It’s not just West’s hateful remarks that get Levy mad, but also his power and reach, which have led to more hatred being directed at him and his people.
“Trust Me, I’ve seen it,” Levy stated. “I get a lot of lovely DMs all the time. I am Jewish, it’s what I am, it’s [the way] I was born. It’s something I am proud of and will continue to fight for. I will stand up for my people at the octagon or elsewhere, and will never support antisemitism. I won’t stand for any racism — not around me. Do not bully others around me, otherwise I will find you .”
