On Friday, Twitter suspended the account of American rapper Kanye West again for violating the rules of the social media platform. "I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended," Musk tweeted in reply to a Twitter user who said "Elon Fix Kanye Please".
Before suspending West's account, Twitter also limited the number of his posts. In October, the popular rapper, who legally changed his name to Ye, agreed in principle to buy the social network Parler, just days after Twitter and Instagram suspended his account due to his anti-Semitic comments on social media.
However, the two parties agreed to suspend the purchase.
Ye has been widely criticized after making a series of openly anti-Semitic statements in recent weeks, including praising Hitler on a television show. "Ye has arrived in a new ensemble here with us, but I'll assure you it is Ye," Jones said at the start of the interview "I see good things about Hitler also," he told Jones.
This guy... invented highways, invented the very microphone that I used as a musician, you can't say out loud that this person ever did anything good, and I'm done with that." "I'm done with the classification, every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.
I like Hitler." Kanye said in an interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. Jones tried to get back at Kanye for his statements about Hitler and the Nazis, but Kanye didn't budge. "I don't like the word 'evil' next to the word Nazis.
I love Jews, but I also love Nazis," West said. Republican Jewish Coalition dubbed the three men "a disgusting triumvirate of conspiracy theorists, Holocaust deniers, and anti-Semites." "Given his praise of Hitler, it can't be overstated that Kanye West is a vile, repellent bigot who has targeted the Jewish community with threats and Nazi-style defamation," a statement from the coalition said.
"Conservatives who have mistakenly indulged Kanye West must make it clear that he is a pariah. Enough is enough."
President Joe Biden also appeared to address the issue in a tweet on Friday
"I just want to make a few things clear: The Holocaust happened.
Hitler was a demonic figure. And instead of giving it a platform, our political leaders should be calling out and rejecting antisemitism wherever it hides. Silence is complicity," Biden said in a tweet on Friday.
