Instagram suspends ex-US presidential candidate for 24 hours


Popular American singer and independent candidate in the last U.S. presidential election, Kanye West, is going through a messy divorce with his lifestyle ex-wife, Kim Kardashian. In recent times, there have been a lot of rants from the singer. Some of his rants were targeted at Pete Davidson and Trevor Noah both comedians. However, the former is the current boyfriend of his ex-wife. Due to Kanye’s words that break Instagram’s rules, the celebrity was suspended for 24 hours.

Presently, these posts are no longer available on Ye’s Instagram account. Trevor Noah, after criticizing Ye for his behavior, Ye responded with a racial slur aimed at Noah.

Kanye’s suspension prevents him from posting, commenting, or sending direct messages on Instagram. The punishment for Kanye on Instagram may not end after this ban. According to Meta’s spokesperson, if Ye violates its rules again, it may take further actions against him.
