After publishing what some have called an anti-Semitic post, Kanye West is being investigated by Instagram Meta.
Instagram banned the Grammy Award winner’s account and removed information from his profile after he broke the social media platform’s rules and guidelines.
However, a Meta representative declined to disclose to either network what content broke their regulations.
West released an image of a text exchange he had with Diddy on Friday that has since been erased. In the chat, West is said to have claimed that Combs is under the authority of Jews. According to NBC News, he put in the caption, “Jesus is a Jew.”
The American Jewish Committee (AJC) criticized the language of the West on Friday for encouraging “Kanye West should figure out how to make a message without employing antisemitic tropes like money and control,” a writer said in a statement. The performer has incited anti-Jewish sentiment throughout the past week.”
They also brought up his appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight last week, where he claimed that Jared Kushner’s cooperation with Israel that led to a peace agreement with the United Arab Emirates “was to make money.”
West’s social media activity abruptly switched from Instagram to Twitter on Friday night, where he called out Meta owner Mark Zuckerberg, following his contentious two-part interview on the Fox News program in which he discussed the backlash from donning a “White Lives Matter” shirt for his Yeezy show on Monday at Paris Fashion Week. On Election Day in November 2020, West’s last tweet was posted.
The transgressions come after West made a controversial post on Friday in which he released a screenshot of a text conversation with Sean “Diddy” Combs. In the chat, West claimed that Combs was under the sway of Jews and threatened to use Combs as “an example to demonstrate the Jews that told you to call me that no one can intimidate or influence me”
In a video released on Instagram on Friday, the advocacy group the American Jewish Committee criticized West for his “incoherent ranting filled with racist and antisemitic undertones.”
West participated in a Tucker Carlson interview on Fox News before the post-interaction with Combs. In their talk, West strayed from the topic of people who dictate to others and accused Jewish former White House advisor Jared Kushner of arranging deals for Israel in exchange for money.
West lately mainly stopped using Twitter, but after being banned from Instagram, he went back and posted an old picture of himself with the CEO and creator of Meta, Mark Zuckerberg. “How you going to kick me from Instagram,” reads the caption.
Elon Musk, who is close to signing a Twitter agreement, adjusted the lion’s tail by replying to that tweet. Welcome back, my friend, to Twitter!
“Mark, look at this. How did you remove me from Instagram? “He shared an old photo of the two of them performing karaoke, writing in part.
