JUMIA ANNIVERSARY

In what is termed as “inciting violence” through offensive tweet, Kanye West has been suspended from Twitter just two months after his last ban.

The US rapper, who now goes by the name Ye, posted a series of erratic tweets – one of which appeared to show a symbol combining a swastika and a Jewish star, BBC reports.

Twitter’s new boss Elon Musk was asked by one user to “fix Kanye”. West had “violated our rule against incitement to violence”, Musk tweeted.

“Account will be suspended,” Musk wrote in a Twitter post.

Also on Thursday, during an interview with US conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and with his face covered in a mask, West praised Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and ranted about sin, pornography and the devil.

The head of the UK’s Holocaust Educational Trust described West’s comments as “repulsive and sickening”.

“These comments mixed with his high profile and huge following have dangerous consequences,” chief executive Karen Pollock said.

In recent months West has caused controversy with a series of antisemitic and racist remarks – leading to clothing giant Adidas cutting ties with the rapper.

West was initially locked out of his Twitter and Instagram accounts after posting antisemitic messages in October. Both platforms removed West’s posts – which accused rapper Diddy of being controlled by Jewish people – saying the star had violated policies on hate speech.

These posts came in response to a backlash against his show at Paris Fashion Week, where he wore a T-shirt carrying the slogan “White Lives Matter”.

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