“Testing Testing Seeing if my Twitter is unblocked,” West, 45, wrote to his nearly 32 million followers. The controversial rapper, who legally changed his name to Ye, saw his account get restricted after he posted about going “death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE” in early October.
The pro-baller has faced heat for sharing an anti-Semitic movie on his Twitter account and being slow to apologize for that. He was also suspended by the Nets, though he’s expected to play Sunday after an 8-game ban.
The temporary suspension of the “Yeezus” artist was the least of his concerns over the last couple months. Multiple businesses and institutions cut ties with West, including Adidas, which had a ten-year relationship with him.
Musk, who bought the company for $44 billion, said last month West’s account was restored before the acquisition and he was not consulted beforehand.
Some social media users were displeased to see West active again on Sunday.
West’s post had over 72,000 retweets by Sunday evening.
