Kanye West’s Twitter and Instagram locked on offensive posts

In the same tweet, which was deleted by Twitter, he said, “You played with me and tried to test anyone who opposes your agenda.”

Earlier this month, Ye was criticized for wearing a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt in his collection at Paris Fashion Week.

Rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs posted a video on Instagram saying he doesn’t support the shirt and urging people not to buy it.

On Instagram, Ye posted a screenshot of a text conversation with Diddy and suggested he was controlled by Jews, according to media reports.

Under their policies, both social networks prohibit the posting of offensive language. Ye’s Twitter account is still active but he cannot post until the suspension ends, after an indefinite period.

Meta, which owns Facebook as well as Instagram, will sometimes place restrictions on accounts it believes repeatedly violate its rules. Sanctions may include temporary restrictions on posting, commenting, or sending direct messages.

Ye had returned to Twitter on Saturday after a nearly two-year hiatus, reportedly after Instagram locked his account.

Billionaire and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who last week renewed his $44 billion bid to buy Twitter after a month-long legal battle with the company, welcomed Ye’s return to the platform before he was suspended. tweeting: “Welcome to Twitter my friend”.

Musk said he would turn Twitter into a free-speech haven and ease restrictions, though it’s unclear exactly how he would run the influential network if he were to take over.
