Facebook has suspended rapper Willie after he shared insulting posts aimed at his Jewish critics.
His comments came after an anti-Semitic tirade on Twitter on Friday.
On Facebook, the formidable artist posted under his name Richard Kylie Cowie, the BBC found.
He specifically named Jewish celebrities, including Lord Alan Sugar, comedian David Baddiel and BBC TV host Emma Barnett.
A Facebook spokesman said the publications violated her policies and that he blocked access to the gloomy artist̵7;s Facebook and Instagram profiles. His profiles have not been removed. The BBC contacted Willie for comment.
The posts were aimed at abusing Jewish celebrities who expressed concern about Wiley’s tweets. The few mentioned “Golders Green” – a London suburb with a large Jewish community.
Willie wrote, “Listen, Golders Green, call my sister and let’s meet as soon as possible”; “David Baddiel, come and talk to my face”; and “Who called the police? Are you from Golders Green? I’m coming to sit with you … The maze you could have come with, as you forgot what color you were.”
A number of comments to the publications also include anti-Semitic abuses.
The latest comments were shared on Facebook’s personal profile, not on its official fan page. Although they had a relatively small turnout – less than 100 likes and comments in each – they were visible to the public.
Several of Wiley’s tweets were removed, and his Twitter account was suspended after he continued his anti-Semitic tirade on Friday. One tweet read, “I don’t care about Hitler, I care about black people,” and compared the Jewish community to the Ku Klux Klan. Most of the posts were anti-Semitic.
He has also had a number of Instagram posts removed, but his accounts are still alive.
A number of prominent users have called for a 48-hour boycott of Twitter, which began on Monday, saying the social network was not taking action quickly enough and should finally ban Wiley.
