Twitter blocks Ye

Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West, had his social media account suspended this weekend making an antisemitic comment.


Twitter suspended the rapper’s account on Sunday for violating the platform’s policies.


Ye’s account was suspended after tweeting that he was “going death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.”


The comment has since been deleted by Twitter.


Ye’s social media suspension follows a controversy-filled week for the rapper which began after the artist launched the ninth season of his YZY clothing label at Paris on Monday wearing a t-shirt decorated with the phrase “White Lives Matter” on it.
