The rapper’s account on the social network will be blocked for alleged violation of the rules of incitement to hate.
The general director of Twitter, Elon Musk, announced this Friday the suspension of the account of the American rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West.
“I tried my best. Despite that, [Kanye] again violated our policy against incitement to violence. The account will be suspended,” the businessman wrote on the social network.
I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.

The decision comes after the artist posted a series of anti-Semitic tweets. On Thursday, Kanye shared an image combining a swastika with a Star of David, just hours after declaring in an interview that he “loves Nazis” and that he likes Adolf Hitler.
The rapper had also uploaded an old photograph of Musk with a naked torso on a yacht under the phrase: “Let’s always remember this as my last tweet.” In this regard, the owner of the platform clarified that the musician’s account was blocked for “incitement to violence” and not for his “unfavorable” snapshot.
More information, shortly.
