Donovan Edwards, running back for the Michigan Wolverines, came under fire Thursday after he reportedly retweeted an antisemitic post that featured Kanye West, now known as Ye.

Multiple users on Twitter screenshotted the retweet, which read “Jewish people will literally tell you that they want you to kill your own and humiliate your women simply because they have children to feed.” Images from Ye’s “Drink Champs” interview, as well as Charlamagne tha God’s discussion with a music executive, were featured in the retweet.

The University of Michigan did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller’s request for comment. At the current time, no potential repercussions have been announced.

During the past week, both Boston Celtics guard Jaylen Brown and Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald broke away from Ye’s agency, Donda Sports, due to the rapper’s antisemitic comments, according to Bleacher Report. Ye has also lost the large parts of his business in the sneaker industry, with multiple corporate giants cutting ties with the rapper.

Only a small number of people have publicly defended Ye, with Antonio Brown being the most notable, according to Fox News.

Currently a sophomore, Edwards has played in five games in the college football season for the undefeated University of Michigan Wolverines. In total, Edwards has tallied 307 rushing yards and four touchdowns, according to ESPN. While on the receiving end, he’s collected 89 yards off of eight catches, with one of them being for a touchdown.
