Elon Musk Suspends Kanye West’s Twitter Account After Posting a Swastika Merged with a Significant Jewish Symbol
On early Friday, Twitter suspended the account of Kanye ‘Ye’ West again for allegedly violating the platform’s rules on inciting violence, according to Elon Musk.
According to CNBC, Kanye West recently shared a graphic depicting a swastika, a Nazi emblem, inside a Star of David, a significant Jewish symbol.

“I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended,” Musk tweeted in a reply.
Ye was able to send out a tweet poking fun at Elon Musk before his account was suspended.
“Let’s always remember this as my final tweet #ye24,” Ye wrote in his caption.
Elon Musk responded to this tweet saying, “That is fine.”
Elon Musk also made it clear that the suspension of Ye’s Twitter account had nothing to do with an unflattering photo of him getting hosed by Ari.
“Just clarifying that his account is being suspended for incitement to violence, not an unflattering pic of me being hosed by Ari. Frankly, I found those pics to be helpful motivation to lose weight!” Musk tweeted in a reply.

Before his account got suspended, Kanye West also defended Balenciaga.
“Earlier on Thursday, West posted what appeared to be a text message exchange with Balenciaga’s creative director, Demna Gvasalia, who he has collaborated with on a number of projects over the years,” Newsweek reported.
“God loves Balenciaga,” West later tweeted. “Love is the answer, Jesus is the answer. Praying for all of the innocent artist and beautiful humans who make clothing that had nothing to do with the [ad campaign]. People’s grandmothers work [there] for Christ sake.”
