Kanye West has been suspended again by Instagram after another disparaging remark about Jews.
NBC News reported on Monday that the troubled musician, who legally changed his name to “Ye” last year, posted his Instagram suspension notification to Parler, a social media platform popular among conservatives that he announced plans to acquire earlier this month.
Ye had tried to post to Instagram a text message exchange with Russell Simmons, the co-founder of hip-hop record label Def Jam Recordings, where Simmons encouraged him to “leave this fight and strategize” and “rebuild your biz.”
In response, Ye texted Simmons a disparaging remark about “Jewish business people.”
Def Jam Recordings, a subsidiary of Universal Music Group, had previously announced that West and his music label venture, GOOD Music, is no longer affiliated with them, ending their partnership with the rapper last year.
Ye added in his post that he was kicked off Instagram for 30 days after posting the image on his account.
A Meta spokesperson confirmed to NBC News that it has deleted Ye’s account from its platform due to violating the company’s policies.
His words continue to impact him and his businesses, such as his Yeezy fashion brand and his Donda Academy school.
The Donda Academy basketball team were originally scheduled to play against The Skill Factory in Atlanta on Nov. 6, but given the controversy surrounding West, host Morehouse College decided to pull the plug on the whole thing.
A spokesperson for Morehouse says the school “cannot condone, in perception or implication, the recent divisive and unproductive statements by Ye, formerly known as Kanye West.”
