Kanye West criticizes Mark Zuckerberg for removing him off Instagram.

Kanye Omari West, better known by his stage name Ye, is an American rapper, record producer, and fashion designer. He has criticized American internet billionaire and CEO of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg, for removing him from Instagram. 

Kanye criticized Mark for booting him from Instagram in a tweet that was accompanied by an old photo of the pair performing karaoke. Zuckerberg was once referred to as “his nigga” by Kanye. 

He stated: “Look at this Mark. How you gone kick me off instagram. You used to be my nigga.”

Ye’s account was suspended over the weekend for breaking the terms of service of the social media site with an ostensibly “anti-semitic” post. 

Following his contentious Paris Fashion Week show, when he displayed his White Lives Matter shirts, Ye also proclaimed war on the Jewish people, prompting Ye to be removed from Twitter shortly after the message.

The rapper purportedly appeared to show West saying that Combs was under the control of Jews in a text exchange between himself and Diddy that he published in a post that Twitter later removed. “Jesus is Jewish,” 

I’m a little tired tonight, but when I wake up, I’m going to kill three Jews. 

The American Jewish Committee (AJC), in a statement, instantly called out West’s language for promoting “anti-Semitic tropes like greed and domination.” His anti-Semitic remarks, however, sparked criticism from Jewish celebrities and lawmakers. 

Kanye West needs to learn how to convey his message without utilizing antisemitism. The musician has incited anti-Semitism throughout the past week, according to the committee.
