In the video, the words “Kanye is right about the Jews” can be seen scrolling across the outside of the stadium structure, referring to recent anti-Semitic comments by rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West.

In other videos circulating on social media, the same message was also visible in at least one building in Jacksonville on Saturday night.
And on Friday, October 28th, the banners could also be seen from an overpass on Interstate 10 in Jacksonville, according to a tweet from a local reporter. They were also mentioned in a statement from Florida Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried.
The banners read “End Jewish Supremacy in America” and “Honk if you know it’s the Jews.”
