Kanye West Twitter and Instagram accounts locked over anti-Semitism comments

American Rapper, Kanye West has been locked out of his Twitter and Instagram accounts after posting anti-Semitic messages.

The star had his Instagram account suspended at the weekend after accusing rapper Diddy of being controlled by Jewish people.

The message played into a long-standing anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.

West responded to his suspension by rejoining Twitter and saying he would go “death con 3 On Jewish people”, earning him a second disbarment.

Both platforms removed West’s posts and said the star had violated policies on hate speech.

The incident comes after West drew criticism for wearing a “white lives matter” T-shirt during Paris fashion week.

The Anti-Defamation League has called the phrase “hate speech” and attributed it to white supremacists, who began using it in 2015 in response to the Black Lives Matter movement.

West’s stunt immediately drew criticism from his peers.

After having his Instagram account disabled, West took to Twitter, posting a photo of him with Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg.

“Look at this Mark. How you gone kick me off Instagram?” he wrote.

He followed up with a message saying: “I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also.

“You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda,” he added.

The tweet has since been removed, and West’s account has been locked.
