Kanye West has been making headlines recently due to his aggressive social media posts, and now two of the biggest platforms have blocked him from their websites. Taylor Swift’s fans, dubbed “Swifties,” rejoiced in the comment sections after the news spread.
According to Billboard, Twitter deleted the rapper’s post after discovering that he had violated the platform’s community rules and guidelines.
It all started when the Yeezy founder tweeted over the weekend that he was going to “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.”
He claimed he couldn’t be “anti-Semitic” because “black people are actually Jews.”
Only an hour after sharing the post on his account, which he had reactivated after a long period of inactivity, the social media platform deleted the tweet, claiming that he had “violated Twitter rules.”
On the same day, Instagram deleted a photo after groups claimed it was “anti-Jewish.” The Meta-owned social media app deleted the rapper’s post because he violated their guidelines.
A company spokesperson confirmed to the outlet that the unknown post was removed, but his account is still accessible to fans.
If he repeatedly violates their rules, he may face restrictions, according to the outlet. This will prevent him from commenting, messaging, or posting on the platform.
Swifties reacted quickly to the news of Kanye West’s recent restriction, seemingly rejoicing the situation.
One wrote this along with a GIF of a laughing cat:
“once again taylor swift ended kanye west and his incel fans can start crying now.”
Another Swiftie wrote:
“We won thank God finally.”
Kanye West famously interrupted Taylor Swift while accepting her MTV Video Music Award for “You Belong With Me” in 2009. He walked up to the stage and declared that Beyoncé “had the best video of all time” while the singer stood on stage looking upset.
West also included Taylor Swift in the lyrics of his song “Famous,” as well as in the music video, where a wax figure of herself can be seen lying down with other famous people.
