Make-up artist Wiley returns from Twitter bans after allegations of anti-Semitism

Grime artist Wiley received a temporary ban on Twitter and was withdrawn by his management company on charges of anti-Semitism.

The musician posted a screenshot on Instagram on Saturday morning, revealing that he had received a temporary Twitter ban, but has since regained access to his account and resumed tweets.

He also posted an Instagram video saying, “Get out from under your feet and defend your Jewish privilege.”

However, Twitter has been accused of “ignoring anti-Semitism” because its tweets are still visible 12 hours after they were first posted.

We are dealing with this as a very serious matter that needs to be answered with the strongest responsesCampaign against anti-Semitism

His manager John Woolf said A-List Management had ‘severed’ the bond with the musician following the series of social media posts posted to his accounts on Friday.

The anti-Semitism campaign has asked police to investigate the content and has called for Wiley’s accounts to be “closed to prevent further outpouring of anti-Jewish poison.”

The Jewish Woolf wrote on Twitter on Saturday morning: “After Wiley’s anti-Semitic tweets today, we cut ties with him at @A_ListMGMT. There is no place in society for anti-Semitism. ‘

He had previously said that he did not support or approve of what Wiley had posted, but that he would speak to him privately and “help raise him.”

A message on an unverified Twitter account in the name of Wiley, of which Mr. Woolf confirmed that the PA news agency is a star, said: “I would challenge the whole world of the Jewish community alone, I am not afraid that I can handle them. “

The social media site has come under attack because the tweets remain visible.

Labor Member of Parliament Jess Phillips said, “I just saw all the Wiley stuff. Why the hell did @Twitter leave such blatant anti-Semitism and hatred? It hits all the dangerous beats, Jews get things you don’t get, they are in control, they think they are better … These are dangerous things. It should come down anyway. ‘

Fellow MP Neil Coyle added, “His management appears to be able to act faster than @Twitter and reiterates that legislation (including the Online Harms bill) should ensure that social media platforms are not used to spread hate.”

Independent government advisor on anti-Semitism, John Mann, said the tweets “showed exactly why the law needs to be changed to be reasonably accountable.”

This is not the first time the social media site has been accused of ‘allowing racism’.

Last week, it promoted a viral hashtag that contained numerous anti-Semitic tweets.

Several posts of anti-Jewish racism and Holocaust denial were presented to users who viewed the hashtag #JewishPrivilege, which was popular in the UK earlier in July.

Known as the Godfather of Grime and whose real name is Richard Cowie, Wiley received an MBE for services to music in 2018.

I can’t understand how acceptable it is for someone with nearly 400,000 followers, influencing impressionable young minds, to continue to express anti-Semitic hatred for 12 hours without the intervention of Twitter or the lawKaren Pollock, Holocaust Educational Trust

In a Friday statement, a spokesperson for the anti-Semitism campaign said: “Our crime unit has reported this issue to the Metropolitan Police Service, as we believe that Wiley has committed incitement to racial hatred that could carry a significant prison sentence .

“We also asked Twitter and Facebook, which owns Instagram, to close its accounts with hundreds of thousands of followers, to prevent further outpouring of anti-Jewish poison.”

They added that they would contact the cabinet to request that Wiley’s MBE be withdrawn.

The spokesperson said, “Wiley has hundreds of thousands of social media followers and we have seen today that many of them really believe the unhinged hatred he spreads.

“We are dealing with this as a very serious matter that needs to be answered with the strongest responses.”

Karen Pollock, the director of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said: “I can’t understand how acceptable it is for someone with nearly 400,000 followers, influencing impressionable young minds, to continue to express anti-Semitic hatred of Twitter or the law for 12 hours without intervention.

“This stream of racist, anti-Jewish posts hurts a lot. This kind of sedition must have consequences. Rather than using his role as a force for good, this rant suggests that this musician does the opposite. ‘
