He ended his tribute: “Thank you Jonah Hill I love you.”
As memes flooded social media in response to the bizarre revelation, director-producer Christopher Miller (who’s behind other hits including The Lego Movie and the newly-released Cocaine Bear), shared his bewilderment with a simple comment.
“Um… thanks for watching?” he tweeted alongside a screengrab of Ye’s post.
Miller later retweeted a comment made by comedian Patton Oswalt, who wrote: “Pitching a time travel thriller where scientists attempt to screen 21 JUMP STREET for Hitler in 1933.”
Other commentators joked about the situation, with one Instagram user writing: “I feel like Kanye just put ‘Kanye’s apology post to the Jewish people’ into ChatGPT and just posted what he got.”
Another said: “Phew. All of us Jews are overwhelmingly relieved to know you like us. Again. We pray that if you watch a movie with a bad actor who happens to be Jewish, you won't change your mind and hate us again.”
