Kanye West is set to buy right-wing platform ‘Parler’ after being blocked from other mainstream social networks

KANYE WEST- American Rapper Kanye West, or also referred to as ‘Ye’ has announced he is buying right-wing platform ‘Parler’.

Parler is used mainly by U.S. conservatives, and deems itself a “free speech” alternative.

“In a world where conservative opinions are considered to be controversial, we have to make sure we have the right to freely express ourselves.”

Parler, founded back in 2018, sits inline with other far-right platforms like Trump’s Truth Social.

Numerous tech giants like Apple, Amazon and Google have removed Parler from their services because of its far-right beliefs.
