The Conservative Political Action Conference removed YouTuber Young Pharaoh from speaking at the annual event after he expressed differing views on Jewish people on Monday.
“We have just learned that someone we invited to CPAC has expressed remorseful comments that are not at home with the conference or our organization,” CPAC said in a statement posted to Twitter. “The individual will not participate in our conference.”

Among the statements from Young Pharoah that surfaced on Monday was a tweet in June 2020 that said “#HISTICIC OR #SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION IS NOT INCLUDED #JEWS OR #JUDAISM … ALL #LIE SITES. ”
“GO GET THE BEST #JEWISH #SCHOLAR WE CAN DO & ONLY #RELIGION AS A PURPOSE FOR #POLITICAL RELATIONSHIP,” the tweet continued.

CPAC rejected Young Pharoah from the annual conference after the American Jewish Committee rejected his comments and urged CPAC to convict them.
“The CPAC leadership must reject its antisemitic conspiracy theories and ensure that Jewish hatred has no place at the conference,” the Jewish group wrote in tweet on Monday.
Young Pharoah did not immediately respond to a Fox News request for comment.
The YouTuber was one of dozens of speakers on the agenda of the annual conference, which is a project of the Conservative Union of America (ACU). The ACU did not return a request for comment immediately.
Former President Donald Trump is among the high-profile speakers expected to appear at the four-day event, and the theme is “America Uncanceled.” Trump’s speech marks his first public appearance since leaving the White House.
