Kanye West banned from Twitter after mocking Elon Musk

Kanye now loves Hitler but doesn’t like Elon

Kanye West rinsed his mate Elon Musk in what was his final tweet after being kicked off the platform – again – after posting an image of a swastika inside the Star of David.

Just hours after telling the world how much he “loves Hitler” on Alex Jones’ Infowars podcast, West, now known as just Ye, decided to keep the fire burning on social media where he only recently returned after his privileges were removed for making anti-semitic remarks.

“I tried my best,” Musk said. “Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”

Earlier, Ye posted an image of a swastika inside the Star of David, alongside the caption: “YE24 LOVE EVERYONE #LOVESPEECH.”

The post sparked some debate over the meaning, but generally most drew some obvious conclusions given Ye’s favourite topics of conversation of late.

Some commenters suggested, however, that the rapper was referencing UFO-based religion Raëlianism, which was founded in 1974 by auto racing journalist Claude Vorilhon, who claimed he was visited by aliens a year earlier.

The logo is strikingly similar – The Daily Beast noted – though the Raelian website confirms it uses both the swastika and the Star of David: David representing the infinity of space and the swastika representing the infinity of time.

Ye followed the post with: “Well every one, we had a nice run, Jesus is King,” alongside a screenshot of an accompanying message allegedly sent from Twitter owner, Musk.

“Sorry, but you have gone too far. This not love,” the text message said.

“Who made you the judge?” Ye replies.

Ye then posted some allegations about his ex wife, Kim Kardashian and an NBA star, writing: “Let’s break one last window before we get outa here I caught this guy with Kim Good night.”

And backed Balenciaga in a number of posts. The brand has had to apologise over a campaign involving children and bondage bears.

In his last missive, Ye took aim at Musk: “Let’s always remember this as my final tweet #ye24,” he wrote, alongside an image of a shirtless Musk on a boat in Greece in July.

Musk has previously been mocked for the pic.

Musk replied to the vacation snap saying “frankly, I found those pics to be helpful motivation to lose weight” and saying that Ye is now suspended from Twitter for “incitement to violence, not an unflattering pic of me”.

Of the logo, Musk replied: “This is not [fine].”

Taking to Truth Social, Ye confirmed his Twitter account had been temporarily locked for 12 hours, while sharing a screenshot of the same text messages, claiming: “Standing in truth with two Jan 6ers as we speak Jesus is King.”

Musk then posted: “FAFO.”

A slang term for “fuck around and find out.”

Ye’s Twitter account was then suspended completely, just over a week since he returned to Twitter after the company locked his account on October 10.
