Twitter has suspended rapper Ye, formerly Kanye West’s account after he tweeted an image of Nazi Swastika or Hakenkreuz intertwined with a Star of David as a campaign logo. 

The Star of David is a generally recognized symbol of Judaism, while Hakenkreuz is an ancient symbol affiliated with Hitler’s Nazi party. Elon Musk confirmed the suspension in a tweet and said that West’s account has been suspended for “incitement to violence.”

It all started on Thursday when a user requested Musk to “Fix Kanye Please.” Responding to the tweet, the Tesla founder responded, “I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.” Shortly after the Donda singer’s Twitter account was suspended almost immediately after.

The rapper has been embroiled in controversy for making a range of anti-Semitic and racist remarks. He also shared a picture of shirtless Musk getting sprayed with water, with the caption: “Let’s always remember this as my final tweet.”

Responding to the tweet, Musk wrote, “Just clarifying that his account is being suspended for incitement to violence, not an unflattering pic of me.” 

During a podcast interview with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones on Thursday, Kanye also praised former German leader Adolf Hitler.

“I see good things about Hitler also. This guy invented highways, invented the very microphone that I used 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 classification, every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler,” he said during the live stream. 

With his face totally covered with a black mask, Ye said, “The Jewish media has made us feel like the Nazis and Hitler have never offered anything of value to the world… I see good things about Hitler, also.”
