Elon Musk Suspends Kanye West From Twitter for Inciting Violence

Kanye West has been banned from Twitter again and accused of “inciting violence” over offensive tweets – a month after his account was reinstated.

As reported by the BBC, the US rapper, who now goes by the name Ye, posted a series of erratic tweets – one of which appeared to show a symbol combining a swastika and a Jewish star.

Twitter’s new boss Elon Musk was asked by one user to “fix Kanye”.

Musk tweeted that West had “violated our rule against incitement to violence”.

“Account will be suspended,” Musk wrote in a Twitter post.

West was locked out of his Twitter and Instagram accounts after posting anti-Semitic messages in October.

Both platforms removed West’s posts – which accused rapper Diddy of being controlled by Jewish people – saying the star had violated policies on hate speech.

In March, West was also suspended from Instagram for 24 hours after using a racial slur in reference to comedian Trevor Noah.

He has continued to stoke further controversy both on and offline.

During an interview with US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Thursday, with his face covered in a mask, West praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and ranted about sin, pornography and the devil.
His latest Twitter ban comes hours after the right-wing social media platform Parler said West could no longer buy the firm.

In a statement Parlement Technologies said: “The company has mutually agreed with Ye to terminate the intent of sale.”

The firm said the decision was made in mid-November.

Parler, which is a much smaller platform, is popular with conservatives and the far right, and styles itself as a “free speech” alternative to mainstream platforms.

“Parler will continue to pursue future opportunities for growth and the evolution of the platform for our vibrant community,” the firm said in its statement.
