Kanye West, an American rapper, and fashion designer had his Twitter account banned once more on Friday shortly after restoring it from a lifetime ban.
West’s tweets that were both supportive of Adolf Hitler and anti-Semitic led to the ban. He shared a photo on Twitter that seemed to be a swastika covered in a Star of David.
The Swastika is the primary symbol of Hitler’s Nazi party, and the Star of David is a recognized symbol of Judaism and the Jewish people.
Kanye West, also known as Ye was one of the many well-known Twitter users whose accounts were limited or banned and who later had them restored after Elon Musk acquired the ownership of the company.
Ye’s account was previously suspended after it was reported for anti-Semitic tweeting on November 21.
“Fix Kanye,” One follower requested to Elon Musk, the new CEO of Twitter.
In response to the tweet, Musk stated “I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”
West has always generated controversy with his anti-Semitic and racist statements, both online and off.
Thursday also saw Kanye West glorify the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and rant about sin, pornography, and the devil while wearing a mask during an interview with American conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
West posted anti-Semitic remarks in October, which led to the initial suspension of his Instagram and Twitter accounts. Both platforms removed West’s posts after they claimed he had broken their hate speech rules by accusing rapper Diddy of being under the influence of Jews.
These tweets were written in response to criticism of the “White Lives Matter” t-shirt he wore during his show during Paris Fashion Week.
In March of this year, West received a 24-hour Instagram ban for making a racial slur about Comedian Trevor Noah.
When West suggested that the centuries-long enslavement of African Americans may have been a “choice” in 2018, singer Will.i.am took the lead in the backlash against West. Later, he attempted to clarify his remarks.
After Parler, a right-wing social networking platform that bills itself as a “free speech” alternative to mainstream platforms, announced that West could no longer purchase the company, his most recent Twitter ban came shortly after.
After being suspended, West didn’t just stop. He joined Truth Social, a Twitter competitor that was founded by the late US president Donald Trump. supposedly, West disclosed a conversation with Musk. According to the screenshot of the alleged conversation, Musk told West that he had “gone too far” and that “this is not love.”
Ye made an appearance alongside the white supremacist Nick Fuentes on InfoWars in an episode that was uploaded online on Thursday.
“ I see good things about Hitler,” the rapper said.
“Every person, especially Hitler, contributed something worthwhile to the world,” West added.
“Nazis were Thugs,” Jones replied.
“But they also took positive action,” Ye remarked.
“We need to stop constantly dissing the Nazis” he added.
Kanye West repeatedly said various anti-Semitic statements both online and offline. Such anti-Semitic statements made by him had lead to the end of his partnerships with many brands such as Adidas and GAP.
When Elon Musk took ownership of Twitter in October, he set out right once to make several drastic changes within the social media platform, including eliminating the bans on certain accounts.
He has emphasized that he had no involvement in getting West back on Twitter, claiming that the account had already been reinstated when he first brought the social media site.
Since being diagnosed with bipolar disorder years ago, West has been upfront about his issues with his mental health.
However, medical professionals and those who have the same disorder as West have emphasized that mental health issues and anti-Semitism are not related.
