Kanye West, who changed his name to Ye earlier this year, has also been Instagram-bound. The rapper posted about the bond on Parler, the social network he promised to buy.
“I was kicked off instagram for 30 days,” Ye wrote, referring to a Jewish comment made by Russell Simmons, the founder of Def Jam Records and Phat Farm, a clothing line.
You shared a photo of an exchange between him and Simmons, in which Simmons urged him to “be a bridge and fight against white supremacy.” You responded to an objectionable comment.
After announcing that she had been banned from Instagram on Monday, Ye continued to post accusations against Parler.
In a statement to CBS News, a spokesperson for Meta, Instagram’s parent company, confirmed that posts from Ye’s account were removed for violating policies and that Instagram has placed restrictions on the account.
“We can ban accounts that violate our rules, for example, temporarily ban them from posting, posting, or sending DMs,” the spokesperson said.
You have often used social media to share antisemitic comments. He stayed for a short time banned from Instagram and Twitter earlier this month.
After the restrictions, Ye said he bought Parler, it has become a forum for reader opinion and is different from other social media sites.
“In a world where radical ideas are considered controversial, we must be sure that we have the right to express ourselves,” Ye said in a statement.
Parlement Technologies, Parler’s parent company, said in a statement that Ye “is boldly defying his ban from Big Tech, using his far-reaching skills to lead the fight against create a truly indestructible environment.”
Many people criticized Ye’s comments and many companies ties with him have been severed. Adidas, which is the sole owner of the design rights to Yeezy, ended their collaboration last week. The company said he expected it to happen of up to 250 million euros ($246 million) to its net income this year due to the move. Ye’s clients at CAA, as well as Gap and Balenciaga, have also ended their relationship with the rapper.
As a result of his partnerships, Ye is no longer a billionaire, Forbes said.
