Well, we knew something was going to happen!

Kanye West may be watching the throne (aka Nori's crib), but apparently he's not watching his mouth!
We reported earlier how Ye was in an interview where he said some things that offended some people…not that we've EVER heard of that happening with him before!
"Man, let me tell you something about George Bush and oil money and Obama and no money. People want to say Obama can't make these moves or he's not executing. That's because he ain't got those connections. Black people don't have the same level of connections as Jewish people…We ain't Jewish. We don't got family that got money like that. The rappers became the new family."
We'll wait until you're done cringing. Finished? Perfect.
Now, the Anti-Defamation League has understandably taken offense to his remarks, and the organization's national director, Abraham H. Foxman, has made it clear that he wants Kanye to fix his bad reputation with an apology:
"If the comments are true as reported, this is classic anti-Semitism, There it goes again, the age-old canard that Jews are all-powerful and control the levers of power in government. As a celebrity with a wide following, Kanye West should know better. We hope that he will take responsibility for his words, understand why they are so offensive, and apologize to those he has offended.”
Ye really should know better than to make such sweeping and offensive statements!
