singer and celebrity kanye-westwho now goes by the name Ye, was banned and blocked from Instagram and Twitter, following an anti-Semitic message posted on Saturday.
“The account in question has been blocked due to a violation of Twitter policies,” Twitter spokeswoman Katie Rosborough said in a statement to Twitter. TheVerge.
Twitter has since deleted Ye’s tweet, but several users captured the post before Twitter removed it. “I’m a little sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going to die with 3 About the JEWISH PEOPLE,” Ye wrote. “The funny thing is that I can’t actually be anti-Semitic because black people are actually Jewish, also you have played me and tried to criticize anyone who opposes your agenda.”

On Friday, Ye posted a screenshot on Instagram showing a text message between him and rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs, accusing Diddy of being controlled by Jews. This got an answer of the American Jewish Committee (AJC), which criticized Ye for espousing anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
