Kanye West is up to his usual antics, and this time he's been locked out of both Twitter and Instagram for continuing to spout anti-semitic rhetoric. 

The infamous rapper's frenzied agenda started on Saturday, resulting in the restriction of his Instagram account for allegedly violating policy rules and guidelines. This meant that West could no longer post, comment, or send messages on the platform. Meta, the parent company of both Instagram and Twitter, gave no indication of what post warranted the restriction. However, according to Meta guidelines, users must make repeated violations to have their account restricted.

Pitchfork reported that West has previously posted screenshots of alleged texts with Sean 'Puffy' Combs, aka Diddy, captioning the post: “Jesus is Jew,” he says, “Ima use you as an example to show the Jewish people that told you to call me that no one can threaten or influence me.” The post is no longer on West’s account. 

Following his suspension on Instagram, West took to Twitter to continue his anti-semitic agenda, tweeting: "I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE. 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 has since been removed for violating Twitter's rules and guidelines, and West's account was briefly suspended, notes The Hollywood Reporter.

Returning to Twitter on Friday night, West immediately questioned the actions of Meta founder, Mark Zuckerberg, tweeting the below picture with the caption: "Look at this Mark, How you gonna kick me off Instagram. You used to be my n***a".

Billionaire Elon Musk, who is currently in the process of acquiring Twitter for 44 billion dollars, greeted West with open arms when he returned to the platform, replying: "Welcome back to Twitter, my friend!"

This is not the first time West's account has been restricted for violating community guidelines. In March, his Instagram account was suspended for 24 hours after posting a slur targeting The Daily Show host Trevor Noah.
