Meta has confirmed that the Instagram account of Kanye West has been restricted due to repeated violations of the site’s policies. The company explained the decision in a statement provided to Complex on Monday.
“We deleted content from @kanyewest for violating our policies and placed a restriction on the account,” a Meta spokesperson told Complex via email. “We may place restrictions on accounts that repeatedly break our rules, for example, we may temporarily restrict them from posting, commenting, or sending DMs.”
West appears to have addressed the restriction in a post on the social media app, Parler.
“Got kicked off Instagram for 30 days for telling Russel Simmons that I was going to make ‘you know who’ have better contracts and business practices,” Ye wrote. “Jesus is king.”
West has spoken about his desire to purchase Parler in recent weeks, however, after losing out on numerous brand deals, his net worth has dropped from $2 billion down to $400 million, according to Forbes.
