Kanye West has now been locked out of two major social media platforms in the wake of a number of bizarre anti-Jewish posts about fellow rapper Sean 'Diddy' Combs.
The Donda rapper found himself in hot water with Meta, run by Mark Zuckerberg, who is Jewish, after he shared a post on Instagram that suggested Diddy was being controlled by Jewish people.
The 45-year-old rapper also tweeted screenshots of private texts between himself and Diddy that show Combs attempting to engage with the controversial star over his 'White Lives Matter' t-shirts that sparked furore in recent days.

Ye's posts were condemned by many, with the American Jewish Committee branding West's comments as 'dangerous'.
"The control theme seeks to falsely portray Jews as secret puppet masters ruling over others," the committee said on Twitter. "[Kanye West] needs to learn that words matter."
The post was later taken down by Instagram for 'violating our policies and [Instagram has] placed a restriction on the account'.
West - who now likes to be known as 'Ye' - later called out the Meta CEO on Twitter by sharing a picture of the two of them.
The caption read: "Look at this Mark. How you gone (sic) kick me off Instagram? You used to be my n***a."
But that wasn't all.
Ye hit a new low by doubling down on his anti-semitic comments on Twitter which went on to see him cop a ban on that social mea platform as well.
"I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con three (sic) on Jewish people," Ye tweeted.
"The funny thing is I actually can’t be anti-semitic because black people are actually Jew also you guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda."
The tweet remained on Twitter for some time before it was eventually pulled and replaced with an automated message that reads: "This tweet violated the Twitter rules."
A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to BuzzFeed News that Ye's account has been now locked due to a violation of the platform's community policies.
In the wake of Ye's latest fall from grace, Diddy took to his own social media accounts to address the White Lives Matter controversy.
"Right now, all America has planned for us is poverty, incarceration, and death,” Diddy said in his Instagram clip.
"So, before I can get to any other lives matter - which all lives matter, you know what I’m saying - that ‘Black Lives Matter,’ don’t play with it. Don’t wear the shirt, don’t buy the shirt, don’t play with the shirt. It’s not a joke."
