Ye gets back on Twitter (@kanyewest) after Elon Musk restored access to his account on Sunday. Earlier he was locked out of his account as his posts were deemed antisemitic and against hate speech policies.
Earlier in November, Elon Musk sent Kanye Ye a message of positivity following Ye’s first tweet from a series of “testing” tweets. Musk tweeted “Don’t kill what you hate, save what you love.” Ye later responded with a message looking to better relations with the Jewish community.
The move follows the reinstatement of Donald Trump’s Twitter account. The decision to give the 45th president of the United States access to Twitter was based on a poll that had 15 million votes with 51.8% in favor of letting him have a voice on the platform. Other controversial figures who are back on Twitter: are Andrew Tate and Jordan Peterson.
In response to Ye’s first “testing” tweet on November 21, Musk sent a message of positivity writing, “Don’t kill what ye hate, Save what ye love.” Ye later tweeted “Shalom,” a Hebrew word meaning peace, extending an olive branch to the Jewish community.
Following his removal from Twitter and three failed partnerships with brands like Adidas, Balenciaga, and GAP, it was announced that Ye has acquired the conservative social media platform, Parler. Parler markets itself as a “safe space” for uncensored free speech. The deal is expected to close by the end of Q4.
