Elon Musk says Ye suspended from Twitter following Swastika post

Published on

Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, has been suspended from Twitter after posting an image of a swastika depicted inside a Star of David on Thursday night, Elon Musk announced.

Twitter deleted the image for violating the social media site’s rules. The musician’s account stated that it’s “suspended” and all his previous activity was hidden as of early Friday.

Ye posted the image hours after unleashing a barrage of antisemitic remarks during an interview with a conspiracy theorist. 

  • His Twitter account was restricted in October due to antisemitic tweets that led Adidas and several other companies to drop Ye, but it was reinstated after Musk completed his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter.
  • Musk said Twitter “did not consult with or inform me” before restoring Ye’s page, but he responded to the artist’s return by tweeting to him “Don’t kill what ye hate Save what ye love.”

Civil rights groups and other advocates have raised concern over the billionaire’s pledge for a “general amnesty” for suspended Twitter accounts “provided that they have not broken the law” or engaged in “egregious spam.”

It was not immediately clear how long Ye would be suspended from Twitter, but free speech advocate Musk has said permanent bans should be only rarely issued.
