Why Did Elon Musk Terminate Kanye West’s Twitter Account?

It quickly became rumored that Twitter CEO Elon Musk suspended Kanye West‘s Twitter account after the rapper posted an unflattering picture of Musk on the social media site. The situation was clarified later on by Musk, who tweeted that the rapper had violated Twitter’s rules for incitement to violence again with the controversial tweets.

Musk tweeted,

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

Within two weeks of returning, the rapper posted an image that blended a Swastika with the Star of David. Following an interview with InfoWars host Alex Jones in which Ye praised Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, the rapper was suspended from the social media site. Then, the rapper tweeted a bizarre picture of the NBA player with many unhinged comments.

After his clarification tweet, Musk again tweeted a few minutes later, which read, “FAFO.”

The tweet caused confusion, and people started reacting to it and targeting former president Donald Trump for his aggressive tweets. According to reports, Musk’s changes to Twitter following his purchase of the platform have increased racism, antisemitism, and other toxic speech.

Among them is an anti-Semitic rapper running for president. Another is the richest man in the world, who posts memes on the social media platform he bought on a whim. Both have been friends for over a decade.

The pair may not appear to have much in common at first glance, but their years-long relationship explains why Musk continues to support the West despite his anti-Semitic remarks. West and Musk met in 2011 when the SpaceX owner took the rapper on a private tour of the rocket factory.

Upon seeing a photo of the two men at the factory, Musk recalled their friendship fondly, calling it a “hell of a decade.”

Despite their bromance, Musk had to terminate West’s Twitter account over his controversial tweets as the rapper left no choice for him.
