Controversial Tweet

Grimes' use of the phrase "Jew buddies" on Twitter has led to accusations of Anti-Semitism against her. The full tweet, from July 2016, read: “Gotta respect ross for keeping his jew buddies employed but did he not see how tannenbaum put the jets in the dumpster w/that sanchez deal?”[3]

She explained herself on ESPN, saying: "When I wrote ‘jew buddies’ I was speaking about how a lot of communities (Jewish, Christian, gay, sometimes fraternities and sororities) will hire their ‘own people’ for jobs before others. That’s a fact! Why people find facts offensive is strange to me. And now im a racist? Lmao! How? If what I said is racist or anti-Semitic, why isn’t it also racist to only hire their own? America is just an easily offended, fake reacting, bunch of cry baby a– p——! Anyone that thinks I’m a racist needs to build a f—— bridge and get over it. I’m not a racist, I’m a realist." [4]

Grimes is also known for her tweets in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. [7]
