Kanye West‘s Twitter account has been suspended once again for violating the social media platform’s rules on “incitement to violence.”
Thursday night, Ye tweeted an image of what appeared to be a swastika symbol inside a Star of David, a prominent symbol of Judaism.
The post came shortly after he interviewed with controversial radio host Alex Jones where he spoke on “the Jewish media” and said he saw “good things about Hitler.” He also used his platform to defend Balenciaga amid the company’s most recent campaign scandal over the alleged condoning of child exploitation. As the outburst continued, he accused NBA baller Chris Paul of sleeping with his ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, and shared an unflattering photo of Elon Musk, to which Musk responded, “that is Fine.”
But in response to the swastika, Musk said, “This is not,” seemingly confirming the indefinite suspension of Ye.
Musk said he “tried his best,” but “Despite that, [West] again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”
I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.
