In The Latest Entertainment News Of Kanye West
Kanye West, the controversial rapper/entrepreneur, has had his account on X, the social platform formerly known as Twitter, restored. This comes after West made a promise to the Elon Musk-owned company that he would refrain from posting hateful content, including antisemitic remarks.
In December 2022, West, now known as Ye, was banned from Twitter for sharing an image that featured a Nazi swastika within the Star of David. The post has since been deleted. At the time, Musk stated that West’s account was suspended due to “incitement to violence.”
According to the Wall Street Journal, the company reinstated West’s account after receiving reassurance that he would not use the platform to spread harmful language, particularly antisemitic content. It is worth noting that Musk has not publicly commented on the restoration of West’s account.
An email inquiry sent to the company’s PR email address received an automated response stating, “We will respond shortly.” As of Sunday morning, West has not made any new posts on his X/Twitter account, which has over 31 million followers, since his suspension eight months ago. West has alleged that his antisemitic rants cost him $2 billion in business deals, including Adidas severing ties with him. Kim Kardashian, who is divorced from West, discussed the challenges she faced in dealing with his offensive comments on a recent episode of Hulu’s “The Kardashians.” Last week, Musk, who completed the $44 billion acquisition of Twitter in October 2022, announced the rebranding of the social network as X, a letter he particularly favors.
The revamped X app, according to CEO Linda Yaccarino, will incorporate features such as audio, video, messaging, payments/banking, and more. As part of the rebranding efforts, Musk installed a strikingly luminous “X” sign atop the San Francisco headquarters last Friday.
