Just a few days after Kanye West issued an apology of sorts to the Jewish community, Meek Mill's joined a fight to combat antisemitism. Robert Kraft recently announced a $25M initiative to combat anti-Jewish hatred, which has undoubtedly increased over the past few months. Kraft enlisted the help of Tom Brady and Meek Mill for the initiative, which will go through the Patriots owner's Foundation to Combat Antisemitism. Kraft explained that the rising number of antisemitic incidents inspired him to raise awareness of what's happening across the country.
"What's happening in America today, it is a big part of my life," Kraft told People about the new initiative. "There's been work done that shows that 50% of Americans do not realize that antisemitism is any problem, and the Jewish population is roughly 2.4% of the population in the US but yet receives over 55% of the hate crimes." With the help of Meek Mill and Tom Brady, Robert Kraft aims to "educate all Americans" on the hateful acts perpetrated against the Jewish community.
Meek Mill, Tom Brady Join Robert Kraft's Initiative
Kraft's foundation already began rolling out its campaign via social media through the Blue Square emoji. They've shared a number of stories that highlight the struggles Jewish Americans face right now. "[Tom Brady] and I are still very tight and he will be using this blue emoji when we kick off again," Kraft said of enlisting the retired quarterback for his campaign. It seems as though Meek Mill will likely join Tom Brady and Robert Kraft on the social campaign, as well.
The Philadelphia rapper's involvement doesn't come as much of a surprise, especially since Kraft played a big role in helping launch the REFORM initiative. Meek Mill will join Robert Kraft during a trip to Poland next month for the March of the Light. The event takes visitors through the locations of concentration camps in the country. Robert Kraft explained Meek Mill will join him to "see what went on" during the Holocaust. The rapper later shared the news on Twitter, writing, "Shout out to Robert," along with several diamond emojis.
