Hailey Bieber has a message for her fellow Christians: Theirs is a loving God.
The Rhode skincare founder took to Instagram Stories on Monday, October 24, to speak out against anti-Semitism, which many see as a response to Ye’s (fka Kanye West) recent comments. “You can’t believe in God and be anti-Semitic. You cannot love God and support or tolerate hate speech,” she wrote. Hailey, who along with her husband, Justin Bieber, is a devout Christian, continued, “To love God is to love people. Everybody. »
Although she didn’t mention anyone by name, many see this missive as a response to Ye’s recent (completely incorrect) conspiracy theories about Jews, and possibly also her earlier (now deleted) posts about Jews. Biebers. In early October, Ye sparked controversy by wearing a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt, which drew criticism from, among others, vogue editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson (that was before he turned most of his attention to Jews; yeah, it’s been a long month). Ye fired back with rude comments about Karefa-Johnson, which was later defended by many fashion industry players, including Hailey Bieber. Ye then turned his attention to the model, writing on his own Instagram page, “Wait am I canceled yet??? justin [Bieber] please let me know,” per Page Six, then, in another post, called it “Hailey Baldloose nose job.” The Biebers reportedly cut ties with the rapper shortly after. (As a Jewish woman who had her nose done: leave Hailey alone!)
The model isn’t the only one speaking out against anti-Semitism lately. Sportswear brand Adidas also ended its relationship with the rapper-creator, posting a statement online that read, “Adidas does not tolerate anti-Semitism and any other type of hate speech. Ye’s recent comments and actions have been unacceptable, hateful and dangerous, and they violate the company’s values of diversity and inclusion, mutual respect and fairness.
Hailey, meanwhile, is in repair mode and just dated her husband’s ex, Selena Gomez. Love heals; hate divides!
