Kid Cudi voiced his support for Palestine on Instagram, Sunday, amid Israel’s ongoing retaliation for Hamas’ terror attacks on October 7. After those incidents resulted in the deaths of more than 1,400 people, Israel’s military has killed over 9,000 people living in Gaza, including large percentages of women and children, according to CNN.
“I can’t watch what’s happening in the world and remain silent,” Cudi began his lengthy post. “I can’t imagine the pain people are feeling. Seeing their entire neighborhoods bombed, losing generations of family members, parents crying over their children’s lifeless bodies, communities turning into mass graves, people digging through rubble of their homes in hopes of finding remains of their loved ones.”

“I recognize that there’s more to the story than what’s happened over these past few weeks. And it goes without saying, I love my Jewish brothers and sisters and condemn any violence towards them,” he added. “Your losses are unimaginable and you are all in my prayers. My prayers also go out to the hostages and their families, may they be returned safely.” Check out the full statement below.
