Kanye West has been suspended from Twitter again Friday morning, after Elon Musk declared he was in violation of the platforms regulations on inciting violence.

Musk suspended West’s account and publicly announced his reasoning. “I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended,” Musk tweeted. His message was in response to a user who asked Musk to “fix Kanye.”

Musk didn’t identify specifically which message from West caused him to take action, however West had posted an image of the star of David that was altered from its original form, according to CNN.

This is one of many repercussions West has faced in recent weeks. He was also suspended from Instagram. West also claimed that the IRS froze four of his bank accounts which have left him completely unable to access his own money, according to Yahoo.

West posted anti-Semitic content on social media after appearing at a Paris fashion show wearing a shirt that was branded with the message, “White Lives Matter.” His continued anti-Semitic comments led to the cancelation of some of his biggest business contracts, inclusive of his Yeezy deal with Adidas.

Fashion house Balenciaga also cut ties with the rapper.

This is the second time West’s Twitter page was suspended since October.
