Kanye West has briefly been suspended from Instagram for violating its policies on hate speech, bullying and harassment.
His account, @kanyewest, was frozen for 24 hours Wednesday night, restricting him from posting, commenting or sending messages on the popular social media platform.
One of the deleted posts on the page include repeated racial slurs that West used to caption a screenshot of comedian Trevor Noah‘s Google page.
Noah had discussed the ongoing fallout surrounding West’s estranged wife Kim Kardashian in a segment on “The Daily Show” on Tuesday night.
West, who recently changed his official name to Ye, also targeted Kardashian’s boyfriend Pete Davidson and Black stand-up comedians D.L. Hughley and Michael Che in his Instagram posts.
A spokesperson for Meta, which is the parent of Instagram, said the company would consider taking further action if the rapper continues to violate the social media platform’s rules.
