Ye's Twitter Account Suspended After Posting Image Resembling Swastika

'I Tried My Best. Despite That, He Again Violated Our Rule Against Incitement To Violence. Account Will Be Suspended' Said Musk

Rapper Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, was suspended on Twitter Thursday night.

In a series of tweets leading to his suspension, Ye tweeted support for fashion brand Balenciaga amidst their controversy regarding several photos featuring children with sexually suggestive imagery.

Ye also tweeted an image which appeared to resemble a Nazi Swastika combined with the Jewish star of David captioned, “YE24 LOVE EVERYONE #LOVESPEECH.”

Other users suggested the “Swastika” image shared by Ye resembled the Raëlian symbol of UFO religion Raelism founded in 1970s France by Claude Vorilhon.

Ye shared a screenshot of a text conversation with Twitter owner Elon Musk following his suspension in which the tech billionaire told the rapper “sorry, but you have gone too far. This is not love.”

“Who made you the judge?” Ye responded.

“Well everyone, we had a nice run. Jesus is King,” Ye captioned a separate post in a now-deleted tweet.

Musk responded to the rapper’s text by reciting the Lord’s Prayer, to which West responded “I’m Jesus name” along with a photo showing West received what appeared to be a 12-hour suspension.

“Standing in truth with two Jan 6ers as we speak,” Ye posted from his Truth Social account following his suspension. “Jesus is King #ye24.”

“I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence,” Musk said, commenting on Ye’s suspension shortly after.

“Account will be suspended.”

“Just clarifying that his account is being suspended for incitement to violence, not an unflattering pic of me being hosed by Ari,” Musk clarified.

Musk followed up on Ye’s ban shortly after saying “FAFO,” which is an acronym for “f— around find out.”

“Jesus taught love, kindness and forgiveness,” Musk said Thursday afternoon following Ye’s appearance on Alex Jones’ Infowars.

“I used to think that turning the other cheek was weak & foolish, but I was the fool for not appreciating its profound wisdom.”

During Ye’s appearance on Infowars with political commentator Nick Fuentes, the rapper made a number of antisemitic statements throughout the nearly three-hour broadcast saying he “liked” Hitler and further suggesting the German leader was “cool.”

Host Jones appeared to bat for Ye, saying he didn’t deserve to be referred to as a “Nazi” for simply expressing his opinions.

“You can’t say out loud that [Hitler] ever did anything good, and I’m done with that, I’m done with the classifications,” Ye continued. “Every human being has value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.”

“The Nazis, in my view, were thugs, shut people down and did a lot of really bad things,” Jones replied.

Ye cut off Jones,  saying, “But they did good things too” in reference to Nazis.

“We gotta stop dissing the Nazis all the time,” said Ye.

West also referred to the deaths of his mother and Michael Jordan’s father as “Zionist sacrifices.”

The rapper recently lost partnerships with Adidas, Gap and Balenciaga following a tweet in which the rapper said he would go “death con 3″on Jews in October.
