Kehlani ‘Rages’ At Fellow Artists For Silence On Palestine

Kehlani has hit out at fellow musicians who have stayed silent about the ongoing war in Palestine which has killed over 36,000 people since October.

The singer posted a video on Instagram on Monday (May 27) in which she addressed the growing humanitarian conflict in the Gaza Strip.

Kehlani began by calling out her “peers of highly fucking platformed people, well paid people who have already beat the fucking game” for not commenting on the war and saying: “You can’t speak?! Disgusting.”

She finished by saying: “It’s fuck Israel. It’s fuck Zionism. And it’s fuck a lot of ya’ll too.”

Kehlani also wrote a lengthy caption on the post which said: “I don’t got it no more i just don’t i tried hella ways to cope & it doesn’t exist and that’s okay, nobody should know how to cope right now.

“I tried to drop some music & get my mind back right, my focus back & the rage is just EXTREMELY prevalent. this shit is fucking me up BEEN fucking me up it should be fucking a lot of yall up but apparently it’s not????”

She added: “What’s good yall??? we don’t sell out shows without A CROWD FULL OF PEOPLE. the songs don’t chart without PEOPLE. the trends don’t trend without PEOPLE. you don’t draw a line at beheaded babies or people burnt alive after 7 months the of plenty of other atrocities?

“Idc about the roll out the formula the strategy the algorithm at this point i’m begging U TO BE PEOPLE. BE A FUCKIN HUMAN BEING.”

Kehlani’s post was supported by Mackelmore who has also been outspoken in his criticism of Israel’s actions during the war.

He commented: “Goosebumps… every word. You been showing up the entire time. For inspiring me.”

Kehlani has previously been outspoken in her support for Palestine, having called for a ceasefire and also signing a letter calling out the “occupation of Palestine” last year.

She also criticized the U.S. government’s support of Israel, writing on Instagram: “ask yourself these questions as we push forward on over a month of GENOCID3 committed by our country with our tax dollars. as we put the lens/power/fight behind freeing Palestine, Congo, Sudan, Yemen, all oppressed peoples & ensure LAND BACK & FRUITFUL LIFE, not just survival.

“Who do you want to be? one who took part, or one to be extremely ashamed of. decide. decide now.”
