LOS ANGELES, Texas (TMX) - Police in California are investigating after antisemitic flyers left on cars and homes in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills on Sunday.

Photos shared by Sam Yebri, a candidate for L.A. City Council, shows the flyers distributed at his home in Westwood. The flyers blame Jews for the COVID pandemic and response, various social issues, as well as causing “every war in history.”

On Saturday, a group raised antisemitic banners over the 405 freeway in Los Angeles, supporting recent antisemitic comments by Kanye West.

“Disgusting hate speech,” Beverly Hills Mayor Lili Bosse tweeted Sunday. “As a daughter of an Auschwitz survivor, I will always bear witness and speak out.”

Per reports, the Beverly Hills Police Department is investigating the flyers, and the Los Angeles Police Department is investigating a similar flyer distribution in its jurisdiction.

“White Supremacy is a societal cancer that must be excised,” L.A. District Attorney George Gascón tweeted Sunday. “I stand with the Jewish community in condemning this disgusting behavior.”
