    Organizers said Young Pharaoh, an online commentator and rapper known for dabbling in conspiracy theories will not speak at the three-day event after derogatory comments about Jews were spotted on his Twitter account.
    "We have just learned that someone we invited to CPAC has expressed reprehensible views that have no home with our conference or our organization," the organization said in a tweet, without naming Young Pharaoh.
    "The individual will not be participating at our conference."
    In a report published Monday by the left-leaning watchdog group Media Matters, the self-proclaimed “Philosopher, Scholar, Musician" was revealed to have posted that Judaism is a "complete lie" and "made up for political gain," and that "Jewish people are 'thieving fake Jews.'"
    Young Pharaoh, who has more than 550,000 subscribers on his YouTube page, also claimed that Israeli Jews control the most powerful social media platforms.
    “All the #censorship & #pedophilia ON #socialmedia is being done by #Israeli #Jews‼️,” he wrote. “All #YouTube, #Twitter, #Facebook, & #Instagram are all owned or controlled directly by them‼️”
    CPAC, which is scheduled to be held in Orlando, Florida this year from Feb. 25-28, will feature former president Donald Trump as its keynote speaker.
