Kanye West Suspended From Instagram For Racial Slur To Trevor Noah

Kanye West Suspended From Instagram For Racial Slur To Trevor Noah

Kanye West, an American rapper, has been suspended from Instagram for 24 hours after using a racial slur in reference to comedian Trevor Noah.

The American musician posted about Noah after he said Kanye’s actions towards his ex-wife Kim Kardashian were “terrifying”.

Kanye has been criticised for repeatedly posting remarks about Kim, their children and her partner Pete Davidson.

Meta, which owns Instagram, said the rapper violated the platform’s policies on hate speech and bullying.

Although his account remains visible, Kanye is unable to do things like post, comment or send direct messages.

Other recent posts from Kanye have accused Kim of stopping him from seeing their children – something she’s denied.

In a statement, Meta said it would take “additional steps” if it saw further violations of its policies.

Meta added that it had also “deleted content” from Kanye’s account.

The comments from Trevor Noah were made during an episode of the satirical news show that he hosts, The Daily Show.

Trevor Noah said Kanye’s treatment of Kim Kardashian shines a spotlight on ‘what so many women go through.’ He added:

You may not feel sorry for Kim because she’s rich and famous.

But what she’s going through is terrifying to watch and shines a spotlight on what so many women go through when they choose to leave.

Kanye – who has legally changed his name to Ye – has been locked in a public feud with both Kim and Pete Davidson, regularly posting screenshots of private conversations between the three.

In response to Trevor Noah’s comments, Kanye posted a screenshot of a Google search for the comedian on his Instagram account, accompanied by the lyrics to ‘, My Lord’, which he changed to include a racial slur.

The post has since been removed.

Being black is not an excuse to say something racially offensive. Racism isn't only about colour only

He's back posting already, there is nothing the media will do to Kanye that is new to him, from slandering George Bush to saying slavery was a choice and they tried to cancel him but he's still arguably the biggest artist so Trevor needs to stick to being used by the white men
