Hours After Termed “Bravest” by Netflix CEO Reed Hastings, Elon Musk’s Twitter Bans Kanye West for Going Too Far

Kanye West continues to stir controversy with his statements. The rapper was banned from social media for a brief period after his anti-Semitic comments. However, after Elon Musk took over the micro-blogging platform, his account was restored once again. After being back on the platform, Ye announced a verbal fast. But since then, he continued to break his supposed verbal fast.

His previous comments also cost him his partnership with big brands like Adidas, GAP, and Balenciaga. But it seems he is over that setback and has gotten into the bad books of Elon Musk this time.

Elon Musk suspends Kanye West for violating Twitter policies 

The free speech absolutist has now suspended the rapper’s account over incitement of violence. On Thursday, Kanye West shared a now-deleted photoshopped image of a swastika within the star of David with the caption: “YE24 LOVE EVERYONE #LOVESPEECH.”

The post immediately caused widespread outrage. Elon Musk apparently dropped into Ye’s chatbox to warn him that he was taking it too far and that it was not a love speech. Instead of heeding the warning, Ye challenged him in reply. He had further shared the screenshots on his Twitter as well, which are now deleted.

Earlier on Thursday, the Donda rapper had appeared in an interview with Info wars host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. On the show, he openly praised Hitler. According to him, the Nazi leader had brought the most value to the table. 

While Ye’s erratic behavior continues to raise concerns, Elon continues to struggle with Twitter. After the acquisition, he brought some major changes to Twitter, which didn’t sit well with too many people. However, Netflix CEO, Reed Hastings has lent his support to the Tesla owner. According to him, Musk is “the bravest, most creative person on the planet”. Hastings is “sympathetic” toward the entrepreneur’s agenda.
