Kanye West's fans won't be able to read a tweet from the rapper in the next 12 hours as he has been kicked out of Twitter for the rest of the day, according to his friend Rick Fox.
The former NBA player took to Twitter Wednesday night to confirm that Kanye won't be able to tweet for the next 12 hours as Twitter barred him from doing so. Many believe that Twitter froze West's account after he posted a private information of a journalist.
The Christ is King rapper shared the phone number of Randall Lane, the chief content officer of Forbes Media and editor of the magazine. In his tweet, the rapper seemed to be urging his fans to harass Lane by giving out his contact number.
The platform at first hid the post from the public view and replaced it with a note saying it had violated the Twitter rules. It also appeared that it notified Kanye to take down the tweet.
Apparently, West won't be able to tweet again until he deletes it himself. However, it looked like Kanye refused to delete the post; hence, his account has been banned from using the platform for 12 hours.
The "Famous" hitmaker has been having issues with Forbes after the publication did not recognize him as a billionaire on its annual list for the last two years. He said the publication snubbed him even though he is worth more than a billion.
Moreover, Kanye West also posted a video of himself urinating on one of his 21 Grammy trophies to protest what he claimed as mistreatment of artists in the music industry. The rapper revealed that musicians don't have rights in owning their master recordings.
He also made shoutouts to fellow artists including Taylor Swift, who previously publicly slammed Big Machine Records for selling her masters to Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun. Kanye asked Swift, Bono, Drake, and Kendrick Lamar to show support on his "mission." Swift hasn't respond on West's tweet yet.
The presidential candidate tweeted nonstop about his battle with his record labels, Universal and Sony. He even shared screenshots of the pages of his contracts with Universal.
Meanwhile, Kanye West's recent tweets came a day after he said he wouldn't release new music until his contracts with Universal and Sony's parent company EMI end. The rapper sued both labels back in 2019, seeking to let him out of his contract. The lawsuit was settled in October that year.
