Kanye West’s Twitter and Instagram accounts restricted after alleged antisemitic post

Kanye West’s Twitter and Instagram accounts were restricted over the weekend, with the social media platforms saying they removed the rapper’s posts after online users condemned them as antisemitic.

West, who has legally changed his name to Ye, had his Instagram account suspended after a since-removed post in which he allegedly invoked antisemitic tropes, accusing a musician of being controlled by “the Jewish people”.
