The rapper who posed with Jeremy Corbyn posted racist and anti-Semitic tweets, it emerged today.

JME – whose real name is Jamie Adenuga -has endorsed the Labour leader ahead of the general election and urged young voters to register to vote ahead of June 8.

The pair took part in a photo opportunity and made several posts to social media, including Mr Corbyn’s own Twitter and Snapchat accounts.

Mr Corbyn seized on JME’s endorsement as an opportunity to try and drive up voter registration among young voters, his most prominent source of support.

But the Labour leader faces embarrassment today after historic tweets by the rapper emerged publicly.

On his verified Twitter account, JME re-tweeted a message reading ‘#Iamsweatingmorethan a Jew at a cash machine’.

He posted misogynistic messages suggesting rape had been ‘renamed to ”surprise sex”.

And he made political threats including ‘bomb the White House’ and ‘**** the Queen’.

The posts were made between 2010 and 2013, after his rise to prominence on London’s music scene.

Among the Twitter messages which have emerged publicly is a 2011 retweet about a Jew 'sweating' at a 'cash machine'

A spokesman for Mr Corbyn today insisted the Labour leader condemned racism, anti-Semitism and mysoginy. 

But senior Conservative Andrew Bridgen told MailOnline the incident was telling about Mr Corbyn.

He said: ‘It’s often been said you can judge people by the company they keep. 

‘Jeremy Corbyn keeps some very strange company – from the IRA, to Hamas to characters like this.

‘The comforting thing is on the doorstep, it is clear people have already made up their mind about Jeremy Corbyn.

‘There is a great many former Labour voters who say they cannot vote for Jeremy Corbyn.’

Mr Corbyn posted messages about his meeting with JME on Sunday as he urged young people to make sure they were registered and able to vote at the general election on June 8

And he posted another message featuring a picture of him with JME and his campaign slogan that ‘Labour will deliver for the many not the few’.

‘Jeremy was interviewed by JME for a third party magazine, aimed at encouraging young people to register to vote’.
