Kanye West get locked out of Twitter and Instagram

Fox News reports that Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, has been locked out of his Twitter account. 

The social media giant accuses Ye of violating the platform’s policies.

What did Ye do?

It appears that the locking of Ye’s account is the result of a tweet that he posted that some are calling anti-semitic.

On Saturday, Ye tweeted:

I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE. 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.

This was apparently enough to earn the lockout.

Twitter has also replaced the tweet with a caption that reads, “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules.” The caption contains a link to Twitter’s “our range of enforcement options” page. But, what Twitter didn’t do is explain exactly how this was a violation.

Instagram too

The situation with Twitter took place after Ye was also locked out of his Instagram account. And, this whole incident arose from Ye’s recent decision to publicly wear a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt.

Ye was confronted about the decision by fellow rapper Diddy. The confrontation went public, and, during that confrontation, Ye is said to have used anti-semitic language, which resulted in his Instagram account being locked.

It was then that Ye switched over to Twitter. It was the first time that he posted a tweet in some two years.

Ye posted a message with a photograph of himself and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, writing, “Look at this Mark. How you gone kick me off Instagram (sic).”

The cancellation of Ye

None of this is anything new for Ye. The fact is that he has been dealing with a backlash ever since he, in 2018, publicly came out in support of former President Donald Trump.

Since then, Ye had been dealing with cancel culture. That’s what happens when you are a celebrity and you decide to go against the left’s political agenda, which is one reason why so few celebrities do it.
