WHY, ELON? Musk Reinstates Antisemite Kanye West’s Twitter Account

In December 2022, antisemitic rapper and fashion mogul Kanye West faced severe repercussions after sharing a photoshopped image of a Nazi swastika within the Star of David on his Twitter account.

This came on the heels and was followed by numerous insane antisemitic statements by the rapper, including an interview in which he expressed his love for Adolph Hitler.

The controversial post garnered widespread criticism and drew accusations of antisemitism, prompting Twitter to suspend West’s account for “incitement to violence.” In the aftermath, the billionaire entrepreneur, Elon Musk, who holds a significant influence on the platform, took the drastic step of banning West from Twitter altogether.

However, Twitter has now reinstated West’s account, allowing him back into the digital realm of the social media platform. The unsuspension came after several months of scrutiny and evaluations of his account’s content. Notably, Musk has yet to issue a public statement regarding the decision, leaving speculation about his stance on the matter.

Following West’s suspension, his account underwent significant changes. It is now labeled as an official organization, denoted by a yellow checkmark next to his name. However, despite regaining access, the rapper-turned-designer will face restrictions under Twitter’s new monetization program. This program disqualifies accounts from earning revenue through ads, making West’s posts ineligible for advertisements alongside them. This decision came in light of the contentious swastika post and the ensuing controversy surrounding his comments about Jewish people.

During the period of his suspension, Kanye West’s remarks led to severe consequences in various aspects of his life. Many major sponsors, lawyers, friends, and business partners distanced themselves from the star, including the sportswear giant Adidas, with whom he had collaborated on multiple successful projects.

As of now, Kanye West has not issued any public statements or posted on his Twitter account since the reinstatement.

  1. Please stop posting this anti-Semite. He is about to release an album, which we can all imagine the stupidity and Jewish related non-sense he is about to spew to the world.

    Sadly, this has reach amongst young people and posting his picture on a frum website is ridiculous. Parents should also not be allowing their kids to wear/purchase Yeezy shoes.

  2. Emunas1: Equally simple that once you are willing to accept ANY speech, no matter how hateful and threatening, its an even more slippery slope. I’d rather err on the side of caution and impinge on someone’s free speech rights than risk some lunatics being triggered into action by such speech as we have seen on multiple occasions

  3. @Emunas1 i get you, but where do you draw the line between free speech and hate speech. i mean not to compare but would you give Hitler ym”sh a voice too?

  4. Free Speech is exactly that. If it’s a right, it includes ALL inviduals even the lunatics we disagree with.

    Also an easy fix. Label actual racist/antisemitic “Hate Speech” tweets as such, but we must never outright sensor voices or your voice will be next.

  5. “I’d rather err on the side of caution and impinge on someone’s free speech rights”

    Please just move to North Korea already and stop ruining our country.

  6. @jpa, those lunatics we “disagree” with are going to kill us, given the opportunity. look what Hitler’s “free speech rights” led to.

    It always starts with speech-but never ends with it. hate-speech should be illegal, period.
