Elon Musk responds to Kanye West after suspending his Twitter account for posting shocking images

Musk said the disgraced rapper went too far after uploading a symbol showing a Nazi swastika inside a Jewish Star of David.

Elon Musk has suspended Ye's Twitter account after the disgraced rapper made a shocking post on the social media app.

The artist formerly known as Kanye West went on a Twitter posting rampage shortly after his interview on Alex Jones' InfoWars programme.

In the series of tweets, Ye said he supported Balenciaga, claimed porn use 'ruined' his family, and shared an image of Elon Musk being hosed down on a yacht.

The latter, he said, was going to be his last ever post on the site.

However, he also tweeted a picture of a design showing a Nazi swastika inside the Jewish Star of David.

The post attracted loads of comments, with many begging the Donda rapper to stop ruining his public image and legacy.

Ye added a caption to the post saying '#LOVESPEECH' and to 'LOVE EVERYONE'.

But, Musk has stepped in and suspended his account.

The Twitter owner replied to the tweet saying Ye's controversial design was 'not' an illustration of love.

In screenshots posted by Ye before his account was suspended, Musk allegedly sent a text message citing the tweet which read: "Sorry, but you have gone too far. This is not love."


When a follower begged Musk to shut down the 45-year-old's account, he said: "I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended."

Musk added in a separate tweet that the suspension was specifically for the swastika and Star of David post.

"Just clarifying that his account is being suspended for incitement to violence, not an unflattering pic of me being hosed by Ari," he wrote.

"Frankly, I found those pics to be helpful motivation to lose weight!"

The sad and despicable turn of events for Ye come not too long after he showed his support for Adolf Hitler on InfoWars.

Host Alex Jones suggested West has been 'demonized' in the press recently following a string of problematic and antisemitic remarks.

He added that it was unfair for West to be compared to Adolf Hitler or the Nazis.

But Ye hopped right into the conversation and said something fans couldn't believe.


"I love everyone, and Jewish people are not gonna tell me… ‘You can love us, and you can love what we’re doing to you with the contracts, and you can love what we’re pushing with the pornography'," he said.

"But this guy that invented highways, invented the very microphone that I use as a musician—you can’t say out loud that this person ever did anything good, and I’m done with that. I’m done with the classifications, every human being has something of value that they brought to the table.

"Especially Hitler."


Jones tried to take back control of the show, but before he went to an advert break, West blurted out: 'I like Hitler'.

Sadly, West didn't stop there.

Later in the show, he added to his comments, defending the man who oversaw the murder of around six million Jews.

He said: "They did good things too, we’ve got to stop dissing the Nazis all the time.

"The Jewish media has made us feel like the Nazis and Hitler have never offered anything of value to the world."

"I love Jewish people, but I also love Nazis," he concluded.
