Kanye West’s recent ban from Instagram could mean the “Yeenyuhs” will take matters into his own hands and create his own social media app.
The Blast reported on Wednesday, March 16, the rap star was temporarily suspended from the social media app for 24-hours.
The suspension came after he threw multiple expletives and racial slurs at “The Daily Show” host, Trevor Noah.
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.
Kanye called Trevor a “k**n” which is defined as, “a black person who doesn’t like people who are black,” according to Urban dictionary.
As per the Urban Dictionary, ‘K**n Baya’ means “a word used to define a black individual who is anti-black and often acts against the black community.” It also defines it as “the disparaging term used to refer to a black individual or any person of African descent.”
The reason for Kanye’s outburst toward the late-night TV host came after Noah expressed his concerns about the rapper’s divorce and custody battle with ex-wife, Kim Kardashian.
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 “being harassed.”
Despite Kanye’s recent statements about Kim withholding their four children from him, the “Eazy” rapper took his son, Saint (6), to a Warriors game on Wednesday night.

Ye’s good friend and fellow music maker French Montana spoke out about Kanye’s suspension on Wednesday.
French Montana Says Kanye Will Start His Own Social Media Platform
Montana took to Twitter to issue the following message, “They suspended my dawg Kanye off Instagram he about to make his own social media platform.”

He might actually be on to something.
Kanye recently created his own streaming device called “Stem Player,” which is the only place “Donda 2” is available.
Stem Player costs $200 and has reportedly earned the rap genius $2.2 million in sales.
Let’s say Montana is accurate in saying Kanye will create his own social media platform.
Then he could create his “genius” idea of “JesusTok.”
TikTok is a big point of contention for the father-of-four. He absolutely hates that his oldest daughter, North West (8), is on the app thanks to her mom allowing her.
He accused Kim of putting North on the platform “against my will.”
Earlier this year, he went on a heated tirade against the Gen-Z social media app and explained that kids need “JesusTok” rather than TikTok.
In fact, this is a concept he conceived back in 2020.
In a tweet published in August 2020, the rapper said, “A VISION JUST CAME TO ME… JESUS TOK I WAS WATCHING TIK TOK WITH MY DAUGHTER AND AS A CHRISTIAN FATHER I WAS DISTURBED BY A LOT OF THE CONTENT BUT I COMPLETELY LOVED THE TECHNOLOGY.”
