Wiley was briefly suspended from Twitter following his anti-Semitic statements, which included descriptions of the Jewish people as “cowards” and “snakes” and comparisons of the Jewish community to the Ku Klux Klan, according to The Guardian. As of July 25, her Twitter account appears to have been restored. In an Instagram post, Wiley also denied that his management company had abandoned him and claimed he had in fact severed his ties with Woolf.
London Metropolitan Police are also “assessing” Wiley’s recent anti-Semitic comments, according to a statement provided to The Guardian which was also tweeted by Police in Tower Hamlets. “We have received a number of reports of alleged anti-Semitic tweets posted on social media,” it read. “The Met takes all reports of anti-Semitism very seriously. Relevant material is being evaluated. ”
Wiley, often referred to as ‘the godfather of filth’, was named a member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 2018. Following his anti-Semitic comments, the UK organization Campaign Against Antisemitism called for the revocation of his MBE.
