Ye, the artist and business mogul previously known as Kanye West, had his account suspended on Twitter, according to CEO Elon Musk’s announcement made early on Friday morning. Musk tweeted the news to his followers.
“I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended,” Musk said in a tweet.
The American rapper tweeted what seemed to be a misidentification of a “swastika” as a “Jewish star.” Twitter banned Ye only hours after he glorified Adolf Hitler and the Nazis on Alex Jones’s right-wing conspiracy theory program InfoWars.
In other words, the 22-time Grammy winner can no longer access the service. Tesla CEO Elon Musk posted a statement on Twitter regarding the remarks.

We tweeted about it and have yet to get a quick response. Twitter had previously deleted one of Ye’s posts before permanently suspending him, even though he had over 30 million followers.
Ye’s antisemitic rants throughout October led to Twitter’s decision to suspend his account indefinitely. Threats and insults aimed at Jews grew out of these first outbursts.
Over Friday morning, Ye posted an Instagram picture of the swastika superimposed on the Jewish Star of David. Twitter removed Ye’s tweet as soon as it went live on Twitter. Musk then stressed that Ye’s return to Twitter has nothing to do with him.
