JUST IN: Kanye West Has Been Suspended From Instagram
For violating the platform’s policies on hate speech, bullying and harassment. Kanye West has been temporarily barred from accessing Instagram (24 hours), with a Meta representative claiming the rapper’s recent posts violated policies on hate speech, bullying and harassment.
However, reports from TMZ shows the suspension comes after Kanye West posted an image of the Google search page for Trevor Noah – who commented on West’s treatment of ex-wife Kim Kardashian on Tuesday’s (March 15, 2022) episode of The Daily Show – alongside a caption containing racial slurs. That post has since been deleted, though at the time of writing, eight posts remain visible on West’s Instagram profile.
Due to this violation, Kanye West is currently unable to post, comment, send messages or otherwise interact with his Instagram profile for 24 hours, although the Meta spokesperson is said to have noted that “additional steps” will be taken if West makes any further violations.
However, Kanye West has drawn controversy for his repeated attacks on Pete Davidson who’s Kim Kardashian boyfriend. After releasing an animated video for his ‘Eazy’ single, which depicted West kidnapping and seemingly murdering Davidson, several of the actor and comedian’s colleagues spoke out against West. Pete Davidson respond to the situation himself, saying he’s “done being quiet”. He appeared to have reached out to West in a series of text messages leaked by friend and collaborator Dave Sirus (another target of the rapper’s Instagram posts), imploring him to “grow the fuck up” and declaring that Kardashian is “literally the best mother he’s ever met”.
