Kanye West

Kanye West suspended from Twitter again for inciting violence

Just two months after his previous ban, Kanye West has been barred from Twitter and accused of “inciting violence” over obscene posts.

According to reports, the US rapper, who now goes by the name Ye, posted a series of erratic tweets – one of which appeared to show a symbol combining a swastika and a Jewish star.

Twitter’s new boss Elon Musk was asked by one user to “fix Kanye”.

West had “violated our rule against incitement to violence”, Musk tweeted.

“Account will be suspended,” Musk wrote in a Twitter post.

Also on Thursday, during an interview with US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and with his face covered in a mask, West praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and ranted about sin, pornography and the devil.

There has been backlash West’s comments with many saying they are “repulsive and sickening”.

In recent months West has caused controversy with a series of antisemitic and racist remarks – leading to clothing giant Adidas cutting ties with him.
