Vanderbilt University assistant football coach Dan Jackson has apologized after claims were made on social media that he defended Kanye West's recent anti-Semitic comments. 

StopAntisemitism, a group aimed at exposing antisemitism online, posted Jackson's remarks on Twitter. 

"He's not crazy," Jackson wrote in a Facebook post, according to Erie News Now“People try to silence him because he thinks for himself. People don’t want that. Rappers and athletes are taught to think the same as the media/politicans. If they have an opinion that is opposite the mainstream, they’re called crazy. More people need to wake up and speak their mind.”
