Kanye West‘s account on the social networking platform X, formerly known as Twitter, has been restored nearly eight months after he tweeted an image of a swastika merged with a David star.
In December 2022 West, who now goes by Ye, was kicked off Twitter after he share an image of a Nazi swastika embedded with the Star of David. (That post has been deleted.) although At the time, Musk said Kanye West’s account was suspended for “incitement to violence.”
On Saturday, the company reinstated West’s account “after receiving reassurance that he wouldn’t use the platform to share antisemitic or otherwise harmful language,” the Wall Street Journal conveyed quoting an unknown source. (Musk has not publicly commented on the reinstatement of Kanye West’s account; an inquiry sent to the company’s PR email address returned an autoreply that said, “We’ll get back to you soon.”)
“Frankly, I found those pics to be helpful motivation to lose weight,” remarked Musk after West shared some of Musk’s private photos on Twitter, including one of him having a bath on a yacht.
Meanwhile, X temporarily altered its Tweet button to ‘Post,’ implying that the bluebird and its associated Twitter account will be gone soon.
However, the change can be seen easily as a user also posted a screenshot of the new Post switch on Twitter.
Most of the users expressed their opinions and observations on the user’s post.
While one user said, “I just noticed it!!,” another posted, “I was low key hoping it would say ‘X’.”
Musk on Sunday said, “Something special coming soon.
Kanye West, also known as Ye, was diagnosed with bipolar disorder several years ago and has spoken publicly about his mental health struggles.
Previously he had made controversial political statements including support for one-time US President Donald Trump and directing to slavery as a “choice.” However, it was the antisemitic pro-Nazi comments that forced Adidas and Gap to cease lucrative apparel collaborations.
