After two years, Kanye West, who now goes by the name Ye, returned to Twitter. The rapper tweeted that Mark Zuckerberg kicked him off Instagram. Now a report from buzz feed suggests that Twitter also suspended the well-known rapper’s account over a recent anti-Semitic tweet.
Aside from temporarily suspending the account, Twitter removed Kanye West’s tweet, but before that, users quickly took a screenshot of it.
The tweet, now removed, reads: ‘I’m a bit tired tonight but when I wake up I’m going to death penalty You guys have been playing with me and trying to pillory anyone who goes against your agenda.’

Corresponding The edgeKatie Rosborough, a Twitter spokeswoman, said the account in question was suspended for violating Twitter’s policies.
It’s unclear how long his Twitter account will be banned. In case you are not aware, Twitter Rules and Regulations state that a suspended account will remain in read-only mode and may be restricted from anywhere from 12 hours to seven days depending on the severity of the violation. This means that until the restrictions are lifted, Kanye West will not be able to like, share or post tweets, but other users on the social media platform will still be able to interact with his profile.
Last week, Elon Musk welcomed West back to Twitter. In a recent interview, the rapper said the American Jewish Committee was “laden with racist and anti-Semitic undertones” and embroiled in a controversy over wearing a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt.
