During a recent interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, rapper Ye praised Hitler and said he saw “good things” about the German leader. It’s unclear why West was suspended from Twitter, but a message on his account says it is for “inciting violence.” It’s unclear whether West was suspended for the swastika image, or for some other reason.
After he was removed from Twitter, Ye was temporarily banned from Instagram. Later, Twitter reinstated his account. The move marks the first time an influential user has been suspended for violating Twitter’s rules. But it’s not clear how long West’s ban will last. Elon Musk, who bought Twitter for $44 billion, had pledged to allow as much free speech as possible on the platform.
On Sunday, West tweeted a picture of a swastika embedded into a Star of David. The image was later removed. Kanye subsequently tweeted a screenshot of a text exchange he had with Twitter’s CEO Elon Musk. He wrote “let’s always remember this as my final tweet” and then wrote “death con 3.” He was later suspended from Twitter.
While it’s unclear what triggered the suspension, Ye has been making antisemitic comments on social media in recent months. He recently made a series of comments about Jews and Holocaust survivors that have drawn criticism from conservatives, including the Holocaust Educational Trust and Holocaust Museum. In addition, he has been accused of appointing white supremacist Nick Fuentes as his spokesman.
He also made remarks praising the Nazis, saying he “sees good things about Hitler,” and suggesting Jews are behind conspiracy theories. He later told InfoWars that he didn’t believe the Holocaust actually happened. He’s also accused rapper Diddy of being “controlled” by Jewish people. He’s claimed to be running for president in 2024, but has yet to announce his candidacy.
On Thursday, a series of Kanye West’s posts sparked further controversy. During a recent interview with Alex Jones on InfoWars, he praised Hitler and claimed there were “good things” about him. He also suggested that slavery was a choice. West also tweeted a photo of himself with a neo-Nazi commentator. He claimed he would be using the swastika image as the logo for his proposed 2024 presidential campaign.
West has also vowed to kill Jews. He claims that he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder years ago, and that he’s had problems with his mental health. He’s said he has lost $2 billion in business deals because of his antisemitic comments. He has claimed to have met with white supremacist Nick Fuentes, and has even suggested that the COVID-19 vaccine, which was designed to prevent the spread of AIDS, is the “mark of the beast.”
On Thursday, Kanye West’s Twitter account was suspended. After an appearance on Alex Jones’ InfoWars show, West made a series of controversial remarks about the Jewish community. The swastika image was later deleted, but the swastika was still embedded into a Star of David. He also tweeted a photo of himself on a yacht and said he’s “going to sanitize Adolf Hitler.” He later tweeted a photo of himself with white supremacist Nick Fuentes.
