Twitter on Friday once again suspended the account of American rapper and designer Kanye West on the microblogging website, soon restoring it from a lifetime ban.

The suspension came after West tweeted anti-Semitic comments and praised Adolf Hitler. He tweeted a picture that showed a swastika inside the Star of David.

The Star of David is a recognized symbol of Judaism and the Jewish community, and the swastika is a prominent symbol of Hitler’s Nazi Party.

One user reached out to Musk, who has portrayed himself as a free speech despot, asking him to “fix Kanye.”

Musk replied to the tweet and said “I did my best. Despite this, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. The account will be suspended.”

An hour after Musk’s response, the account was suspended and his antisemitic tweets banned.

Musk also clarified that West’s account has been suspended for inciting violence.

West hasn’t stopped at being suspended, he took on TruthSocial, the Twitter rival that was launched by former US President Donald Trump. West leaks an alleged chat with Musk. Screenshots of the purported chat show Musk telling West that he has “gone too far”, adding that “this is not love.”

Kanye West, also known as Ye, has also been banned from Instagram after posting against the Jewish community in October. His anti-Semitic stance has resulted in several brands such as Adidas and GAP ending partnerships with him.

He also appeared in an interview with radio personality and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. He said, “The Jewish media has made us feel like the Nazis and Hitler never gave anything of value to the world… I see good things about Hitler too.”
