Kanye West’s Twitter Account Suspended, Elon Musk Says “I Tried My Best”
Twitter Inc suspended Kanye West’s account again on Friday. This happened two months after the rapper’s account was reinstated again. His account has been suspended because his tweets violated social media platform rules. Elon Musk is the owner of Twitter and is a self-proclaimed free-speech absolutist. He welcomed the return of the rapper, now known as Ye, to the platform in October. Elon Musk has tweeted that he had tried his best, but despite that, Kanye has again violated their rule against incitement to violence, and the account has to be suspended again.
Twitter had also restricted one of Kanye’s tweets, and his performance was arrested an hour after Musk responded to a Twitter user who had tweeted, ‘Elon fix Kanye, Please.’
Twitter had not immediately responded to the request for comment. They had restored the account of the rapped before Musk’s completion of the social media platform takeover. However, he later clarified that he had no role in bringing Ye back on Twitter. It has been reported that the rapper had taken to a microblogging platform to post several controversial tweets that included texts between himself and Musk.
Before this, in October, his account was also suspended due to anti-Semitic comments. The rapper’s tweet only fueled the fire as he said he liked Adolf Hitler on Alex Jones’s “Infowars show.” This statement had not gone well with the Republicans, who deleted the tweet, which seemed to support him in his anti-Semitic comments.
Kanye had posted a picture that appeared to be a Nazi Swastika inside a Star of the David. It is the religious symbol of Judaism, and he indicated that he would use this logo for his upcoming 2024 presidential campaign. Just before the suspension of the account, he tweeted out an unflattering image of shirtless Musk seen aboard a yacht with the Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel spraying him with a hose. He wrote to remember this as his final tweet. I genuinely wish God would help this man.
