Kanye West’s Twitter account was shut down early on Friday after Elon Musk claimed it had broken the site’s guidelines against inciting violence.
“I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended,” Elon Musk tweeted in a reply.
This is the second time that West, who now goes by Ye, has been blocked from the social media site in recent months. Following the suspension, the SpaceX CEO wrote on the site that the action was taken “for incitement to violence.”
In another tweet, Musk said, “I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence.”
“Account will be suspended,” he added.
Prior to tweeting the Swastika, West took part in a conspiracy theorist Alex Jones interview where he praised Hitler and the Nazis.
“I see good things about Hitler … Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler,” Ye said in the interview.
