Ye’s Twitter account locked after anti-Semitic post: reports

Twitter has restricted the account owned by Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, for violating the social media platform’s policies, multiple outlets reported Sunday.

The rapper and fashion designer had returned to the social media platform on Saturday after his Instagram account was restricted following a two-year hiatus from Twitter.

Twitter confirmed the decision, according to media, including Bloomberg and The New York Timesapparently in response to now-deleted anti-Semitic tweets.

“Going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE,” Ye allegedly wrote in one of the tweets, according to CNN.

“You played with me and tried to test anyone who opposes your program,” he added.

Twitter did not immediately respond to The Hill’s requests for comment.

Ye’s locked Twitter account comes days after his Instagram account was restricted, also for violating company policies, a Meta spokesperson confirmed to The Hill.

It is unclear how long Ye’s restrictions on social media platforms will last.

Several human rights organizations, including the Anti-Defamation League, condemned Ye’s tweets.

“Power. Disloyalty. Greed. Deicide. Blood. Denial. Anti-Zionism. These are all anti-Semitic tropes we break down in our #AntisemitismUncovered guide,” the organization wrote in a statement shared with Variety.

They added: “Many of these myths have influenced [Kanye West’s] comments recently, and it is dangerous.
