Kanye West is under fire once again for anti-Semitic comments. 

The 'Gold Digger' rapper has been seen in a video on social media that showed him widely grinning as he rapped along to his new song with Ty Dolla $ign, 'Vultures', in which he says, "How I'm anti-Semitic? I just f**ked a Jewish b***h." 

Other artists such as Chris Brown and Ty Dolla $ign were also present in the clip, which was filmed in Dubai. 

There has been a swift backlash to West's song and the subsequent video. 

"What's more sickening? The lyrics... Or the fact that both Kanye West and @chrisbrownofficial find it hysterical?" Jewish businesswoman Tanya Zuckerbrot wrote on Instagram. 

"Sick, masochistic, anti-Semitic f–ks." 

"Chris Brown an abuser and Kanye West a psychotic, narcissistic self-proclaimed mastermind," another wrote on Zuckerbrot's post. 

Others declared the display "beyond sickening," "trash" and “disgusting." 

West's latest comments come one year after a string of anti-Semitic tirades, which lost him business partnerships and saw his music struck from radio playlists. 

Leading brands like Adidas, Gap and Balenciaga cut ties with the rapper following the outbursts. 

In December, he told Alex Jones, the host of far-right conspiracy show InfoWars, that he saw "good things about Hitler." 

"Well, I see good things about Hitler, also. Every human being has value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler." 

In October 2022, NZME radio dropped West from its playlists following his initial anti-Semitic comments. 

Mike McClung, NZME's chief content officer, told Newshub: "We have removed all Kanye West songs from our playlists across NZME's stations. 

"We had a small number of tracks of his on ZM and Flava. 

"We constantly review the playlists on our music stations and at this time didn't deem it appropriate to feature Kanye West."
