Twitter Suspends Kanye West Again for “Incitement to Violence” After Rapper Posts an Offensive Image


    Twitter suspended rapper Kanye West following his use of the social media platform on Thursday to share the image of a swastika merged with the Star of David. The tweet was an extension of his recent “love” for both Nazis and Jewish people, even though it is well documented that the Nazis killed six million Jews.

    The rapper uploaded the disturbing image following his appearance on Alex Jones’s InfoWars podcast, during which he revealed that he loves Hitler, the Nazis, and Jewish people but denied that the first two murdered six million of the latter as well as caused intense suffering to millions of others throughout Europe during World War II.

    Twitter Chief Executive Elon Musk announced the suspension in a reply to West's tweet with an unflattering photo of Musk. West announced it was his “final tweet.” The suspension comes two months after his last ban.

    Musk clarified in a tweet: “Just clarifying that his account is being suspended for incitement to violence, not an unflattering pic of me being hosed by Ari. Frankly, I found those pics to be helpful motivation to lose weight!”

    Musk also tweeted: “I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”

    Then West reportedly posted a photo of himself being blocked from the account for 12 hours on Truth Social, the social media platform created by former President Donald Trump.

    West's past comments resulted in his removal from social media sites, his talent agency dropping him, and companies such as Adidas breaking ties with him.

    His Twitter account was earlier blocked after he tweeted that the account was “going death con 3 ON JEWISH PEOPLE” before claiming that he wasn't “antisemitic because black people are actually Jew also.”

    West also accused producer Sean “Diddy” Combs of being under the control of “the Jewish people” in an Instagram post. 

    West offered to purchase the social media website Parler in October. However, the company announced this week that the deal was no longer on the table.
