The upcoming annual Conservative Political Action Conferencewhere former President Donald Trump will make his first speech since leaving the White House on Sundaybooted a hip-hop artist and right-wing social media figure who was scheduled to appear over anti-Semitic tweets.

We have just learned that someone we invited to CPAC has expressed reprehensible views that have no home with our conference or our organization,” CPAC organizers said Monday in a tweeted statement. “The individual will not be participating at our conference.
Young Pharaoh, the hip-hop artist whose appearance was canceled, reacted with an anti-Semitic tweet. He called CPAC’s decision “#CENSORSHIP AT ITS BEST!”
