Ye's Twitter account is unsuspended months after it was banned over swastika post

Ye's account on X, the platform formerly known as Twitter, was unsuspended Saturday, more than six months after it was banned over a post showing an image of a swastika inside a Star of David.

Elon Musk has not yet publicly commented and the company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"Twitter/X says Kanye West’s account is being 'turned back on.' It will be ineligible for a monetization and no ads will appear next to his posts, according to the company," New York Times technology reporter Ryan Mac tweeted. "This comes after he shared an image of a swastika a few months ago."

Musk said in a December post that Ye was suspended "for incitement to violence." The tweet was blocked by the platform for violating its rules.

That wasn't the first time Ye got in trouble over his posts. In October 2022, his account was restricted over antisemitic comments but he returned to the platform the following month.

He also made troubling antisemitic remarks and statements targeting Jewish people that led to Adidas cutting ties with the rapper.

Ye has not tweeted anything since his account was unsuspended. His last post is Dec. 1, 2022, and was seemingly a jab at his ex-wife Kim Kardashian.

"Let’s break one last window before we get outa here. I caught this guy with Kim. Good night," he wrote, including a picture of Golden State Warriors basketball player Chris Paul.

Ye and Kardashian, who have four children together, finalized their divorce in November 2022, days before his Twitter post.
