The Conservative Political Action Conference, themed “America Uncancelled,” has cancelled an appearance by Young Pharaoh after a series of controversial tweets resurfaced online.
“We have just learned that someone we invited to CPAC has expressed reprehensible views that have no home with our conference or our organization,” said CPAC in a statement posted on Twitter. “The individual will not be participating at our conference.”

In July of 2020, Young Pharaoh tweeted: “ALL OF THESE #BIGTECH COMPANIES, #MEDIA, & #SOCIALMEDIA PLATFORMS ARE CONTROLLED BY #CCP & #ISRAEL THROUGH #JEWISH #CEO & CORRUPT #DEMOCRATS… #CENSORSHIP MUST BE #BATTLED IN #COURT ON THE GROUNDS OF BEING USED AS A FORM OF “#INTIMIDATION WITH THE INTENT OF #ENSLAVEMENT”
The infleuncer echoed these sentiments in a series of other tweets, all dating from July of last year.
CPAC subsequently disinvited Young Pharaoh from speaking at their conference, set for next week, after the American Jewish Committee tweeted to the organization, urging them to “denounce his antisemitic conspiracy theories and to act to ensure that Jew-hatred has no place at the conference.”

He has no place on the @CPAC stage.

Young Pharaoh has been widely criticized for his tweets. However, that has not stopped him from responding, and offering to debate those who disagree.
A few hours after the AJC denounced his rhetoric on Twitter, Young Pharaoh tweeted “$50,000 FOR THE TOP #JEWISH #RABBI WHO CAN PROVE THE VALIDITY OF #JUDAISM. I OWN MY OWN #DEBATE LEAGUE & INVITE YOU TO DEBATE ME IN FRONT OF THE WORLD.”
The YouTuber responded to the ACJ tweet with a challenge to engage him in a debate over his remarks for $50,000 dollars.
Young Pharaoh has accused CPAC of censorship and racism for cancelling his appearance.
“THIS IS #CENSORSHIP AT ITS BEST! ALL BECAUSE I SAID “I DO NOT BELIEVE IN THE VALIDITY OF #JUDAISM,” said Young Pharaoh. “NOW IM NO LONGER INVITED TO @CPAC_TV #RACIST, #DICTATORSHIP, #YOUNGPHARAOH”
The theme for the CPAC conference is called “America Uncancelled,” prompting many Twitter users to criticize the organization’s decision to cancel Young Pharoah’s appearance due to his previous statements.
Former Vice President Mike Pence has declined to speak at the CPAC conference this Sunday amid reports that President Donald Trump will be speaking there. President Trump’s CPAC speech will be “show of force” to focus on “payback” against establishment Republicans who betrayed him when he was President, as National File reported:
“President Donald Trump will use his allotted speech time at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida to paint himself as the presumptive presidential nominee for the Republican Party in 2024, according to a new report from leftist outlet Axios.
The speech will reportedly strike a strong tone against the GOP establishment, and offer praise for those who have remained loyal amidst recent political persecution by the Biden regime.”
