A few days after the restoration of Kanye West’s Twitter account, the profile of the rapper (who now goes by the name Ye) was again suspended from Elon Musk’s social network. This was announced by the CEO himself, after West had published a new controversial tweet.
According to reports from various sites, Kanye West had posted an image depicting a swastika combined with a Star of David. Musk’s reaction came immediate, who initially tried to admonish Ye publicly by inviting him to remove the photograph, but the profile was suspended shortly after.
“I have done my best. Despite this, he again violated the rules against inciting violence. The account will be suspended” announced Musk, who shortly after also replied to a message from Kim Dotcom who had severely attacked him. “You stood up for Kanye and that’s how he thanked you. Ungrateful and disappointing. I’m sorry Ethe Megaupload founder tweeted.
Musk’s response arrived shortly after, who clarified that “the account was suspended for inciting violence, not for an unflattering photo of me”.
It is unclear if this is a temporary ban or if indeed the rapper’s profile has been permanently closed.
