Kanye West Twitter account suspended again for ‘incitement to violence’

LOS ANGELES, 2 Dec 2022:

Elon Musk has suspended American rapper Kanye West’s Twitter account for incitement to violence.

Musk announced the suspension of the account of the rapper, who currently goes by the name Ye, after he posted a picture on his account of what appeared to be a swastika interlaced with a Star of David.

“I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended,” Musk wrote in response to the tweet that was removed.

This is not the first time that artist has been suspended from the microblogging site, which was recently acquired by Musk.

He was first suspended from Twitter for making antisemitic comments in October.

In an interview on far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ show yesterday, West praised Adolf Hitler.

He also denied the existence of the Holocaust and made antisemitic remarks.

West appeared at the interview with his face fully covered by a black mask and his hands covered with gloves.

Although the artist has been making headlines for years for his music, fashion brand and personal life, his outbursts in recent weeks have escalated with a string of racist and antisemitic remarks.

These comments have caused him to lose millions of dollars in contracts with shoe and clothing brands, which have terminated their contracts with the rapper.

Last week, West and antisemite and white nationalist Nick Fuentes had dinner with former US president Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago club, which has drawn criticism from even sectors of his Republican party.
