Kanye Ye West has been blocked from posting on Twitter, the suspension coming after the rapper had tweeted a now deleted post featuring a swastika on Thursday evening.
After a chaotic day that saw Ye appear on Alex Jones’ Infowars show and repeatedly say he liked Adolf Hitler, the rapper posted a series of controversial tweets, including supposed text messages between himself and Twitter CEO Elon Musk. Among the tweets, which included praise and support for Balenciaga following the recent backlash against the company, Ye posted a picture of a swastika merged with a Star of David. Twitter deleted the offending post and Ye’s tweet storm came to an abrupt end.
Suspecting he may get suspended, Ye also tweeted an unflattering picture of Musk being hosed by Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel on a yacht.
On Truth Social, Ye’s verified account posted another picture of his text interaction with Musk as well as a screenshot showing that he was locked out of his account for 12 hours.
Musk, a self-described free speech absolutist, confirmed the suspension, first replying “This is fine” to the unflattering picture, but “this is not” to the now deleted swastika tweet.
After a Twitter user tweeted at Musk to “fix Kanye please,” the CEO replied, “I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”
In a further reply, Musk tweeted, “Just clarifying that his account is being suspended for incitement to violence, not an unflattering pic of me being hosed by Ari. Frankly, I found those pics to be helpful motivation to lose weight!”
Doubling down, Musk tweeted the acronym “FAFO” which means fuck around and find out.
Although Musk tweeted that Ye’s account was suspended, the account was still visible.
The Hollywood Reporter reached out to a Twitter rep for comment, but that employee no longer works at the company.
I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.
