Kanye West Again Suspended From Twitter For ‘Inciting Violence’

Controversial American rapper and businessman, Kanye West has been suspended from Twitter again, barely two months after his last ban.

His suspension came on Friday, December 2nd following a post which was an image of a swastika, a symbol synonymous with the Nazis, inside a Star of David, a prominent symbol of Judaism.

A tweet that was seen as an incitement of violence by many. However, in response to the tweet which can no longer be viewed, Elon Musk, Twitter CEO tweeted; “tried my best.”

“Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended,” Musk added.

Kanye West, also known as ‘Ye’ tweeted after engaging in a radio interview with controversial host, Alex Jones on Thursday in which he made anti-Semitic remarks. Ye talked to the conspiracy theorist for an hour, mentioning “the Jewish media” and said he saw “positive things about Hitler.”

Following a succession of antisemitic statements that turned into threatening and hateful remarks about Jews in October, Twitter temporarily suspended Ye’s account. In November, he joined Twitter once more. Ye agreed to purchase Parler, a conservative social media company, following his suspension in October.

“In a world where conservative opinions are considered to be controversial we have to make sure we have the right to freely express ourselves,” he said in a statement released by Parler at the time. But on Thursday, Parler said its deal to be bought by Ye has been called off.
