Kanye West has had his accounts suspended on Twitter and Instagram after the rapper shared anti-Semitic posts.

In a tweet sent over the weekend, West wrote: “I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3. On JEWISH PEOPLE. The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semetic because black people are Jew also. You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.”

The tweet was deleted for “violating the Twitter rules.”

West’s Instagram and Twitter accounts remain active, but he cannot post until the suspension is lifted.

The Instagram suspension came first after West posted an argument between himself and Sean “Diddy” Combs. He accused Combs of being controlled by Jewish people.

“This ain’t a game,” he told Combs. “Ima use you as an example to show the Jewish people that told you to call me that no one can threaten or influence me.” The post was captioned “Jesus is Jew”.

On Saturday, West posted to Twitter for the first time in two years. He addressed Mark Zuckerberg – the Meta boss who owns Instagram, saying: “Look at this, Mark. How you gone kick me off Instagram. You use to be my n***a.” Attached was an old photo of West and Zuckerberg seemingly singing together. 

Elon Musk, who is in discussions over buying Twitter, replied: “Welcome back to Twitter, my friend!” Musk has made clear his belief in less censorship on the social media platform. However, he has not commented since West’s anti-Semitic comments on Saturday night.

    Why did you misquote his tweet by inserting a period where there isn’t one in the tweet? Not only that – it’s not like you thought he just dozed off with his finger on the space bar between the number 3 and the word “On” – and it’s not as if you thought his use of capitalization was unintentional, either. If you’re going to misquote by inserting punctuation that wasn’t actually used – at least try not to be so transparently intellectually dishonest about it and insert which marks were actually compositionally implied, where they were actually implied. The extra spacing is obviously ‘TAB’ key spacing – so start there, hmm? Next, take the obvious capitalization cues. Had you added in punctuation with honesty, where it was actually implied, it would read, “I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3. On JEWISH PEOPLE: The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti-Semitic, because black people are actually Jew also.” Ye set an intentionally ambiguous trap – and he is making fools of you and everyone else who has walked right into it by choosing to ignore the formatting clues he gave that make himself perfectly clear. It’s not as if you missed the part in that tweet that says he considers himself Jewish – so why aren’t you also pretending to have misread him to be saying death con 3 on *himself* as well? Because you know you put that period in the wrong place, that’s why. smdh
