Late on Thursday, Elon Musk suspended Ye’s Twitter account for breaking the social media site’s policies against “incitement to violence,” hours after the rapper sparked fresh criticism by saying, “I admire Hitler.”

Although some news sources claimed that the singer formerly known as Kanye West had uploaded an image of a swastika inside a Star of David, the billionaire made no more mention of how the musician had transgressed Twitter’s rules.

I tried my best, wrote Musk, who has made easing speech restrictions a centrepiece of his ownership of Twitter.

In response to a user’s query regarding Ye’s punishment, Musk wrote early on Friday, “Despite that, he again broke our rule against encouragement to violence.” Account will be put on hold.

It wasn’t clear whether the suspension would last forever.

The incident occurred at the conclusion of a very trying day for Ye, who recently sparked a political uproar by inviting an outspoken antisemite to a dinner at Mar-a-Lago with him and former President Donald Trump. Most recently, Ye stated in an interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones earlier on Thursday that he sees “positive qualities” about Adolf Hitler.

Additionally on Thursday, the pro-conservative social media network Parler disclosed it had cancelled a deal with Ye to purchase the website. Despite the split taking place in mid-November, Ye’s remarks regarding Hitler were made just hours before the announcement.
