Social media accounts of popular American rapper Kanye West, now known as Ye have been suspended following offensive posts made by the controversial rapper.
In the last week, Ye sparked one controversy after another, first at his fashion show and then on social media, prompting accusations of racism and antisemitism.
At Paris Fashion Week on Monday, he unveiled a T-shirt bearing the slogan “White Lives Matter” for his clothing line. He alleged on Friday that Sean Combs, better known as Diddy, was under Jewish control on Instagram. Instagram that day restricted Ye’s account.
He went on Twitter early on Sunday morning and posted a string of insults directed at Jews.
Ye appeared to be referring to the United States’ defense readiness condition, known as Def. Con, when he tweeted that he would soon go “death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.”
He wrote, “You guys have been playing with me and trying to black ball anyone who opposes your agenda. Twitter has since deleted the tweet.
Ye accused Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Meta, the company that owns Instagram, of deleting him from the platform in a different tweet.
In a subsequent tweet, he asked, “Who do you think created the cancel culture?”
Ye’s account was locked, according to a Twitter spokeswoman, for breaking the site’s rules.
According to a Meta spokeswoman, it restricts accounts that persistently flout its rules.
