Kanye West is extremely unhappy with Instagram after his account was restricted following his antisemitic comments during his latest rant.
In recent days, the “All Falls Down” rapper has been on an Instagram rampage, sharing screenshots and posts responding to those who were critical of his “WHITE LIVES MATTER” t-shirts. He bullied Vogue fashion editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson for slamming the t-shirts and called out model Gigi Hadid for defending Johnson, amongst others. However, his published conversation between himself and Diddy is what landed him in hot water.
During the heated text message exchange, Ye claimed that Combs is somehow being controlled by Jewish people, which is a common anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.
“No one can threaten or influence me,” he texted to Diddy. West also captioned the post, “Jesus is Jew.” The post is now deleted, though it left a lasting impact on the platform, causing IG to restrict his usage. The time-out did not stop the Yeezy founder from speaking. He quickly returned to Twitter to call out Mark Zuckerberg, sharing an old photo of the two men in friendlier times.
“How you gone kick me off Instagram? You used to be my nigga,” West tweeted.

After Ye’s comments, he was slammed by the American Jewish Committee, who called his remarks “dangerous.”
It’s unclear how long West will be without his Instagram account. Zuckerberg has not issued a statement on the matter.
