‘So Elon the free speech absolutist is also into cancel culture?’: Elon Musk Gets Mega Trolled for Suspending Kanye West from Twitter for Pro-Hitler Rant

Elon Musk Gets Mega Trolled for Suspending Kanye West from Twitter for Pro-Hitler Rant

Just about a week ago, Elon Musk reinstated the infamous rapper, Kanye West’s Twitter account, thereby welcoming him back on the social media platform that is now owned by the business magnate. But the record producer’s stay seems to have been short-lived as the SpaceX CEO banned him from Twitter today for violating certain major policies of the app and stirring up violence in the name of free speech.

Following the controversial statement of Kanye West that led to the suspension of his Twitter account, a user trolled Elon Musk for seemingly partaking in “cancel culture.” But it looks like the public is siding with the Twitter owner for this one, claiming that he made the right choice, given the hip hop artist crossed the line this time.

Why Elon Musk Suspended Kanye West’s Twitter Account

Kanye West has been in the limelight for a quite a while now, pulling various stunts and leaving a trail of scandals in his wake. And the 45-year-old songwriter seems to have dug a grave for himself yet again, after posting a highly controversial picture of a swastika symbol entwined with a Star of David on Twitter, the caption on which read “YE24 LOVE EVERYONE #LOVESPEECH.”

Ye’s tweet came just hours after him claiming to admire Adolf Hitler in an interview with the popular conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Thursday, rendering people completely baffled.

Following his tweet, the fashion designer later posted a screenshot of a text message allegedly sent to him by Twitter’s CEO himself which said, “Sorry, but you have gone too far. This not love.” To that, Ye boldly responded by stating, “Who made you the judge?” 

Shortly after that, when Ye must’ve sensed the impending doom in the air, he posted yet another picture, this time featuring a shirtless Elon Musk on a boat in Greece, titled “Let’s always remember this as my final tweet #ye24.” 

And soon after all this chaotic bustle that took place on the social media app, Musk suspended Ye’s Twitter account before clarifying that the latter was being banned “for incitement to violence, not an unflattering pic” of him

Following Ye’s tweet of a swastika entwined with a Star of David, Musk suspended the Praise God singer’s Twitter account, announcing that this decision was carried out because Ye broke the “rule against incitement to violence.”

Musk further tweeted the term “FAFO,” an acronym for “f*ck around and find out,” with reference to Ye’s question about who made him the judge of someone else’s behaviour.

The ban on Ye’s Twitter account follows just a month after the multibillionaire investor declared himself to be a “free speech absolutist” post his ownership of the social networking site. Keeping the same in mind, a user on Twitter seems to be holding Musk’s own words against him, claiming that suspending Ye’s account is tantamount to being a part of the “cancel culture.” 

But it looks like the general public is standing with Musk instead of against him as they support the action he took against Kanye West, and him abusing Twitter’s guidelines against instigating violence.

Musk seems to have entered the good books of a plethora of people with his recent move against Ye as everyone supports him for doing the right thing and not letting others violate the freedom of speech that he’s granting on Twitter.

The length of Ye’s suspension from Twitter hasn’t been divulged yet, but Ye claimed that his account was only facing a temporary ban for about 12 hours but no official confirmation from Musk has been received yet.

Either way, one thing’s for sure, don’t mess around with the man who owns Twitter unless and until you’re ready to disappear from the face of the app.
