Twitter Bans Ye For Combining Swastika With Star of David, Musk Claims ‘Incitement To Violence’

Twitter CEO Elon Musk has reportedly banned Ye, formerly known as “Kanye West,” from Twitter for allegedly participating in an “incitement to violence” on the platform, apparently by posting an image of what seems to be a swastika combined with the Star of David.

Valiant News previously reported that the billionaire rap artist took to Truth Social on Thursday night to reveal a text message exchange between himself and Musk after being placed under a 12-hour Twitter suspension over the image.

In the text messages posted by Ye, the African American Tesla CEO-turned Big Tech mogul claimed that the artist had gone “too far” by tweeting out the image with the caption “YE24 LOVE EVERYONE #LOVESPEECH.”

“Sorry, but you have gone too far. This is not love,” Musk reportedly texted Ye.

“Who made you the judge,” Ye retorted, according to screenshots of the exchange posted by Ye.

After Ye appeared to post his text messages with the Twitter CEO, the initial tweet containing the controversial image was labeled as violating the social media platform’s policies and ultimately removed.

“Well everyone we had a nice run Jesus is King,” Ye wrote in the tweet revealing his conversations with Musk, seemingly alluding to the possibility that he may be dealt a Twitter ban over his remarks.

Ye then tweeted out the viral image of Musk, shirtless while on a yacht in Mykonos, Greece with the caption “Let’s always remember this as my final tweet #ye24.”

“That is fine,” Musk replied. “That is not,” he said of Ye’s swastika image.

Musk then claimed that Ye somehow violated Twitter policies against inciting violence and announced that his account would be suspended, seemingly over the swastika post.

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

“Just clarifying that his account is being suspended for incitement to violence, not an unflattering pic of me being hosed by Ari. Frankly, I found those pics to be helpful motivation to lose weight!” Musk wrote in a separate tweet.

It is unclear how Ye’s “LOVE EVERYONE” tweet incited violence, or if his account suspension was due to seperate remarks made on Twitter. Other reports have claimed that Ye’s ban is permanent, but Valiant News is unable to confirm that at this time.
