Kanye West suspended from Instagram for violating harassment and bullying policy

Kanye West has been suspended from Instagram for 24 hours for violating the platform’s policies on hate speech, bullying and harassment, a Meta spokesperson told HuffPost on Wednesday.

Instagram removed content from the rapper’s account for violating these policies and banned the account from posting, commenting, and direct messaging, among other actions, for 24 hours.

Instagram often imposes restrictions on accounts that violate its rules, and the company may take additional action in the event of new violations, according to a spokesperson for Meta, which owns Instagram.

According to TMZ, at least one post was deleted from West’s account. In the post, he allegedly used a racial slur to describe “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah, who recently slammed West for publicly harassing his ex Kim Kardashian amid their ongoing divorce.

West, who legally changed his name to Ye, targeted Kardashian and her boyfriend, comedian Pete Davidson, and exposed details of their personal affairs to his millions of followers. Earlier this month, he released a new music video that appeared to depict a clay version of West decapitating Davidson and burying him alive.
