Antisemitism, as with all forms of racism, is something that completely and utterly unacceptable and has no place in our society. I stand by my Jewish family, my daughter, great friends and all of those I’ve worked with in this diverse world of music and art, and continue to stand against all forms of racism. I will be observing the 48 hour boycott of twitter and instagram."
