"I sincerely apologize to the Jewish community for any unintended outburst caused by my words or actions. It was never my intention to cause harm or disrespect, and I deeply regret any pain I may have caused," he wrote after scrubbing all his old posts on the platform.
"I am committed to reflecting on this experience and learning from it to ensure greater sensitivity and understanding in the future. Your forgiveness is important to me, and I am dedicated to making amends and promoting unity."
The rapper/businessman's recurring outbursts raised concerns among many Jewish communities across the United States. However, it was his high-profile dinner at Mar-a-Lago with white supremacist Nick Fuentes and former U.S. President Donald Trump that hogged up most of the attention, along with the recent release of his song "Israel," which featured controversial lyrics, including the term "Ni***r Moses."
