New York, N.Y. — Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan is under fire after a speech in which he ranted about anal sex and “Jewish power”.
“Do you know that many of us who go to Hollywood seeking a chance have to submit to anal sex and all kind of debauchery and they give you a little part? It’s called the casting couch. See that’s Jewish power,” Farrakhan said while referencing embattled Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.
Farrakhan has a long history of espousing anti-white and anti-Semitic views, made the comments during a three-hour sermon in which he frequently denounced people of Jewish heritage.
“Think about what they’re gonna say when they have been so thoroughly and completely unmasked,” Farrakhan said of the Jewish people, whom he called the “Satanic Jew” and the “Synagogue of Satan”.
”Whenever you read that God has told the Jews to hear and obey, and they say, I hear and I disobey, that’s Satan,” he said.
The sermon, which Farrakhan uploaded to his official Twitter account, led to a barrage of complaints and his account losing his blue checkmark verified status.
When reached for comment, a spokesperson for Twitter said the company was “unable to comment on individual accounts, for privacy and security reasons.”
Calls for comment to a Farrakhan spokesperson have not been returned.
