A spokesperson for Meta, Instagram’s parent company, told the outlet that the “Donda” rapper is facing a 24-hour suspension for violating Instagram’s policies on hate speech, harassment, and bullying. He will be unable to post, comment, or send direct messages to other users through the app.
The spokesperson added that they will take additional disciplinary measures if Ye continues to violate their policies. This news comes on the day that the “Eazy” rapper hurled racial slurs at “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah.
Kanye West Hurls Racial Slurs At Trevor Noah
On a recent episode of “The Daily Show,” host Trevor Noah expressed concern that West was becoming “more and more belligerent” and said that it “makes you uncomfortable” to see Ye’s ex, Kim Kardashian, “being harassed.”
“What [Kardashian is] going through is terrifying to watch, and it shines a spotlight on what so many women go through when they choose to leave,” Noah said. “…What we’re seeing is one of the most powerful, one of the richest women in the world, unable to get her ex to stop texting her, to stop chasing after her, to stop harassing her.”
Ye took aim at the South African comedian on Instagram on Wednesday, writing, “All in together now… K– baya my lord k— baya K— baya my lord K— baya Oooo’ lord K– baya.”
One fan encouraged Kanye to “use this morning energy differently ye.” However, he also took aim at several other comedians and critics.
Kanye West Calls Out D.L. Hughley Yet Again
Kanye was pretty vocal this weekend about his disdain for the actor, author, and stand-up comedian D.L. Hughley. Last weekend, he went off on one of the “Big Four” original kinds of comedy, saying, “I can afford to hurt u” in a now-deleted Instagram post from Sunday, March 13.
“Funny thing is we’ll probably end up being friends…” Ye wrote before he seemingly changed his mind. “I used to defend this nigga back when he had work…. Like nah he funny … you just gotta watch it 1 trillion more times to get it.”
After Ye called him out on Instagram last weekend, D.L. Hughley issued a subtle comeback, saying, “Mental health is no joke.”
Fans Surprised Ye Wasn’t Suspended After Posting ‘I Can Afford To Hurt U’
After complaining about Kim letting their daughter North TikTok yet again, he also took aim at D.L. Hughley yet again, calling him a pawn. “Yeah I know a king not supposed to address a pawn but I address everything and find addresses,” he warned. “So don’t speak on me or my children I can afford to hurt u.”
Many weren’t all that surprised to see Ye issue such a vocal threat, considering that he has been issuing threats to Pete Davidson through his various music videos.
Kanye West Launches A Series Of Animated Attacks Against Pete Davidson
In the first video for “Eazy” that Ye uploaded to Instagram, a Claymation version of Kanye can be seen kidnapping, burying, and decapitating, a caricature of Pete Davidson.
Last week, he uploaded a new, more graphic, animated video to YouTube. When Ye raps the line, “God saved me from that crash so I could beat Pete Davidson’s a–,” one of the skinned monkeys that appears in the video beats up a character wearing a red sweatshirt that says Skete in white lettering across the front of the hoodie. The skinned primate then knocks Pete to the ground and begins pummeling his face into the ground with both fists.
One source alleged that Kim is “furious” about Ye’s music videos. “She thinks it’s way too violent and is upset,” the insider said. “She’s really upset with Kanye that he’d do this. She’s completely over all of this and she wants it to stop.”
Kim is also concerned about how this will affect their four children: North, 8, Saint, 6, Chicago, 4, and Psalm, 2.
“Kim’s number one concern right now is making sure that her children are protected from the situation because everything plays out in the public eye and that’s very difficult when there are children involved,” the source added. “She is very angry about the violence and she just feels that it’s inappropriate and wrong.”
