Kanye West is thought to have been arranging a trip to the country to meet his new partner’s family.
According to a minister in the government, Kanye West may not be allowed to enter Australia due to his history of antisemitic statements.
It is believed that the rapper, who now goes by the moniker Ye, intended to travel there in order to meet the Melbourne-born family of his partner, Bianca Censori.
Jason Clare, the minister of education, denounced Ye’s “terrible” antisemitic remarks about Hitler and the Holocaust, noting that previous people who had made similar claims had been refused visas.
In a Channel Nine interview, Clare remarked, “People like that have asked for visas to enter Australia in the past and have been denied.” “I anticipate that if he applies, he’ll have to go through the same process and provide the same answers that they did,” the author said.
Ye has made a number of antisemitic statements in recent months, including applauding Hitler, tweeting an image of a swastika, and disputing the Holocaust.
Peter Dutton, the leader of the opposition and a former minister of immigration, stated on Tuesday that he would be inclined to impose a ban on Ye but that the government should make the choice.
He told 3AW radio that the man’s actions and behavior were disgusting and that his antisemitic remarks were shameful.
He is not a person of good reputation, and the minister has the power to prevent someone of terrible character from entering our nation.
The Executive Council of Australian Jewry co-chief executive officer Peter Wertheim met with representatives on Tuesday to make his case for the musician’s exclusion.
Wertheim remarked, “We had a sympathetic hearing.
We’ve argued that this specific person does not pass the character test and that it would be in the country’s best interest to deny him a visa, and we outlined our arguments in that letter in considerable length.
