Twitter on Friday suspended Kanye West’s account again, just two months after the rapper’s profile was reinstated, as his tweets violated the social media platform’s rules.
In October, Twitter owner Elon Musk, a self-described free speech absolutist, welcomed the return of the rapper, now known as Ye, to the platform.
In his last tweet on Thursday night (1st), Musk announced the suspension after the American rapper published an image with an intertwined swastika and a Star of David. “I tried my best. Despite this, he again violated our rule against inciting violence. The account will be suspended,” he said.
Twitter also restricted one of Ye’s tweets. His account was suspended an hour after Musk responded to a Twitter user, who said “Elon fix Kanye please”.
Before the suspension, Kanye West joined the list of controversies in which he has been involved in recent months by praising, in an interview, Adolf Hitler.
The rapper told Alex Jones, owner of the Infowar channel, where he spreads conspiracy theories and far-right ideas, that you can see good things in the Nazi leader.
Twitter had restored the rapper’s account, ahead of the completion of Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of the social media platform. However, he later clarified that he had no role in bringing Ye back to Twitter.
