Published

Kayne West can’t stay out of the headlines for everything but his art of music

It’s no secret Kanye West loves to speak his mind, including recently with Fox new’s Tucker Carlson

He’s words have yet again landed him in hot water – this time on social media

The rapper’s Twitter and Instagram accounts were restricted over the weekend.

The popular social media platforms removed Kayne’s posts after online users condemned them as anti-Semitic.

A since-removed post invoked anti-Semitic tropes, accusing a musician of being controlled by “the Jewish people.”

He was first locked out of his Instagram by Facebook parent Meta. Then after a 2 year hiatus… made his return to twitter (but that didn’t last long)

Kayne posted a picture and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg singing karaoke.

The tweet says: “Look at this Mark How you gone kick me off instagram.”

Elon Musk welcomed West’s return to the platform and replied to a post by the rapper tweeting: “Welcome back to Twitter, my friend!”

West has also previously made erratic online posts.

Earlier this year, he was suspended from Instagram for 24 hours after he directed racial slurs at comedian Trevor Noah.
