Kanye West has blown up Twitter in the last few days trying to reform the music industry. He has shared his progress, tweeting conversations he has had with industry executives, letting his followers know who he is going to contact, and even putting up his 100+ page UMG contract.
It was kind of weird to not see Mr. West tweet almost all day on Wednesday (September 16). His tweets started rolling in around 5 in the morning but stopped around 10 a.m. It turns out, however, his recent antics have gotten him suspended from Twitter.
According to CNN’s Oliver Darcy, Kanye was put on notice by Twitter that his account would be suspended after posting a screenshot of the phone number of Forbes Chief Content Officer Randall Lane. In the Tweet, Kanye had urged his fans to call Lane if they wanted to call a white supremacist. “If any of my fans want to call a white supremacist… This is the editor of Forbes,” Ye tweeted.
Former Laker, Rick Fox, took to Twitter to let everybody know that Kanye’s account was suspended for 12 hours.
Right-wing commentator and Kanye supporter, Candace Owens, also let the public know that Ye’s account was suspended as well.
