Ye’s Twitter account has been suspended.
The news was shared by Twitter CEO Elon Musk, who he said that Ye, Kanye West’s ex, “once again” violated Twitter’s policy against inciting violence.
A (recent) page from Ye had a picture of a Nazi swastika combined with a Star of David.
After learning that he would be banned for this, Ye posted an unflattering photo of Elon Musk taking a shower on a yacht with the caption “Let’s remember this as my last tweet,” to which Musk replied “That’s fine.” You can see the short exchange, along with a (now invisible) tweet from Ye, in the screenshot below.
Ye’s tweets are no longer visible following the suspension.
Musk later be explained that Ye’s account has been suspended for inciting violence, not posting a picture of Musk. “Just to clarify that his account is being suspended for inciting violence, not an unflattering photo of me being run over by Ari. Honestly, I found the photos helpful in losing weight,” he tweeted.

Twitter’s policy against inciting violence is what caused former President Donald Trump to be suspended from Twitter, following his tweets that appear to have inspired the group that took over the US Capitol in January 2021.

Ye’s suspension follows the reinstatement of previously banned accounts, including those of Donald Trump, Kathy Griffin, Jordan Peterson, Babylon Bee, and Ye himself, who was previously banned for posting anti-Semitic tweets. Musk first he said There was no account recovery before the “dissident content control council” was established, but then they went ahead and reinstated Trump’s account following Twitter vote.
