Robert Kraft Sponsors 'Stand Up To Jewish Hate' Ad During NFL Games

Patriots owner Robert Kraft sponsored an ad Sunday … asking people watching NFL games to “stand up to Jewish hate” in the wake of Kanye West‘s antisemitic comments.

The Foundation to Combat Antisemitism (TFCA) released the 30-second ad during the first quarter of the Patriots-Jets game … “calling attention to the concerning rise of antisemitism.”

The org. — which Kraft founded intending to forge positive relationships with Jews and non-Jews — expressed in the commercial that they need more people to condemn antisemitism.

“With the recent rise in conversations about antisemitism on social media, FCAS launched #StandUpToJewishHate, encouraging Jews and non-Jews alike to speak out against hatred and stand with the Jewish community,” the org.’s website read.

The timing of Kraft’s ad was strategic … and comes as Kanye continues to face backlash over the antisemitic remarks he’s repeatedly made in interviews.
