Twitter has suspended rapper Ye’s account, after he violated community guidelines.
On Thursday, Ye, previously known as Kanye West, was blocked from accessing his account after posting a picture of a Swastika merged with the Star of David.
This comes after the rapper appeared on Alex Jones’s InfoWars podcast and repeatedly made anti-Semitic comments.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk tweeted suggested that he gave Ye a chance but he “again violated our rules against incitement to violence.”
Prior to being suspended, Ye had also tweeted an unflattering photograph of Musk being hosed down on a yacht with the title #Ye24.
Ye then tweeted several screenshots of his personal text messages with Elon, revealing that the billionaire had contacted him to condemn his tweet. The two exchanged in a back-and-forth to which Ye replied “I’m Jesus name,” before his account was suspended temporarily.
