Kanye West’s Accounts Restricted: A company’s spokesperson confirmed to Variety that Kanye “Ye” West’s account has been suspended for breaking the social networking site’s rules.
Twitter did not specify in its announcement whether specific posts by West prompted the choice to limit his account.
After West complained on Twitter about a similar limitation on Instagram, the restriction was imposed. The artist tweeted two messages that were mainly deemed to be antisemitic.
Since then, Twitter has removed the initial message for “violating the Twitter rules.” West asserted in the article that he couldn’t be antisemitic and claimed that Jews had “toyed” with him.
“I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death [sic] con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” West wrote in the now-deleted post. “The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also. You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.”
A second post, shared closely after the first, remains public on Twitter: “Who do you think created cancel culture?”
