Kanye West suspended from Twitter after sharing image of swastika and praising Hitler

Replying to a Twitter user who asked him to “fix Kanye”, Elon Musk said: “I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”

Kanye West has been suspended from Twitter after he tweeted an image of a swastika, hours after he praised Hitler and made antisemitic jokes in an interview with the conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

He had shared an image of a swastika entwined with a Star of David.

“Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”

He stoked further controversy on Thursday when clips of him praising the Nazi leader circulated on social media.

In the interview for Infowars, the far-right conspiracy theory website owned by Jones, West said: “I like Hitler.”

Jones said to the rapper: “You’re not Hitler, you’re not a Nazi, so you don’t deserve to be called that and demonised.”

West, whose face was hidden by a black mask, replied: “Well, I see good things about Hitler also.

“I love everyone, and Jewish people are not going to tell me, ‘you can love, you know, us’… every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.”

His Twitter account was previously locked after he posted that he was “going death con 3 ON JEWISH PEOPLE” before alleging he was not “antisemitic because black people are actually Jew also”.

He also accused record producer Sean “Diddy” Combs of being controlled by “the Jewish people” in a post on Instagram.

West was locked out of Instagram for 30 days after violating its policies.

His latest Twitter ban came hours after Parler, a right-leaning social media platform, said West would no longer be buying the company.

Parlement Technologies, its parent company, said both parties had “mutually agreed” to terminate the intent of sale in mid-November.
