“Wiley Kat’s MBE Honour must be Stripped.”

Paris, 27 July 2020

This month, Richard Kylea Cowie Jr., known as Wiley Kat, called “British Godfather of Grime music,” posted messages describing Jews as “cowards and snakes"”, comparing them with the Ku Klux Klan.

After a police investigation, he was booted from his management company... Wiley responded: “If you work for a company owned by two Jewish men and you challenge the Jewish community in anyway, of course you will get fired.”

He also wrote that Jews should “hold some corn” – a slang expression meaning to be shot. He added: “Jewish community, you deserve it”.

“The Centre has joined the ‘Campaign Against Antisemitism,’ and a petition demanding that his prestigious Order of the British Empire (MBE) be withdrawn,’ stated the Centre’s Director for International Relations, Dr. Shimon Samuels.

“In November 2019, former Labour Chief Jeremy Corbyn thanked Wiley on Twitter for his electoral support...”

Today, with Wednesday (27-29 July) an online walkout, #NoSafeSpaceForJewHate, will name media sites failing to take measures against Wiley,” concluded Samuels.
