Elon Musk is excited by Kanye West’s tweets and spoke with him. The rapper was previously blocked on social media over anti-Semitic posts
Last week, Twitter deleted Kanye-West’s tweet about Jews and restricted the handle for violating its policies. The rapper left the account just a day after returning to the platform for the first time in nearly two years. Elon Musk said he spoke to Kanye for a while.
Kanye West is the latest celebrity to test how big social networks control what is said on their platforms. Instagram and Twitter have both deleted the music lovers’ posts, widely criticized as anti-Semitic, and blocked his accounts.
The incident began with West wearing a White Lives Matter t-shirt at Paris Fashion Week. The Anti-Defamation League (a group that fights anti-Semitism and all forms of intolerance towards Jews) called the phrase hate speech and blamed it on white supremacists who started using it in 2015 to help Black Lives Matter. (Opposition to racism and crime followed the summer of 2020 when an unarmed black man died in Minneapolis).
Wests’ stunt immediately drew criticism. Rapper Diddy named Sean Combs among them. He posted an Instagram video that showed him saying he didn’t like that tagline.

Life matters. And stop playing Black Lives. Don’t wear a T-shirt. Don’t buy a t-shirt. Don’t play with the t-shirt. She said it wasn’t a joke.
The West responded by saying they were unhappy with their product; he said he sells his own t-shirts and that’s his business. There can’t be anyone between me and money is Kanyes’ literal word. When Diddy asked him to leave, West replied, “It was a lie, but he came back all the way.
I used you as a model to show the Jewish people who asked me to tell me that no one could threaten me or influence me.
The message appeared to refer to an anti-Semitic theory that a secretive Jewish community wants to control the world’s media, government and banks.
With 18 million followers, Wests’ Instagram account has been deactivated. The rapper-turned-Ye announced he would return to Twitter, where he was later greeted by Elon Musk.
My friend and I have wonderful feedback on Twitter!

In the first post, Kanye posted a photo of Meta founder Mark Zuckerberg with the caption, “Look at this brand.” How did you get me off Instagram?
Look at the Mark.
How did you start, hit me up on instagram!

He left a message saying something like this: “So write a message” in the message.
I’m a little tired tonight, but when I wake up, I’ll die. You worked with me and tried to defeat anyone who opposed your plans.
The tweet was later deleted and Wests’ account was blocked.
The rapper was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and went public with his mental health issues. Despite his controversial behavior and remarks, Kanyes’ latest remarks threaten his business interests. Adidas, for example, said it is reviewing its partnership with the star.
Elon Musk was very excited about the situation with Kanye, and he wrote that he had already spoken with Kanye.
Did he talk to you today and express my concern about his recent tweet which I think he took to heart?

Musk, who renewed last week’s offer to buy Twitter after months of negotiations, said he would prioritize free speech on Twitter and criticized the networks’ decision to block Donald Trump for his comments. Elon himself has no desire to give his thoughts. Last week, he hosted a Twitter poll on peace between Ukrainians and Russia, and offered a grant to the occupiers of Crimea. And in a recent interview, he added that he made a second controversial statement, suggesting that China and Taiwan could be resolved by transferring some control over Taiwan to Beijing.
