Rapper Kanye ‘Ye’ West’s Hebrew-language apology for anti-Semitic comments appears to have been generated by the ChatGPT artificial intelligence tool, the outlet TMZ has claimed.
The African-American artist ended up “canceled” last year over statements that the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) declared to be anti-Semitic. He lost major sponsorships and got banned from a number of social media platforms – including X (formerly Twitter) – after he praised Adolf Hitler.
On Tuesday, he returned to Instagram with a post written entirely in Hebrew, claiming to be sorry for the things he said and that he did not intend to harm anyone. The machine translation to English left a lot of people online suspicious that the statement had been written by someone other than Ye, however.
