Kanye West is restricted on Instagram after anti-Semitic posts and rants about Tucker Carlson

Kanye West’s tumultuous week began with backlash over a “White Lives Matter” shirt and culminated with Instagram restricting his account after he made anti-Semitic posts. West posted a screenshot of his text conversation with Sean “Diddy” Combs in which he insinuated that Combs was controlled by Jews. The American Jewish Committee, an anti-hate group, called West his “dangerous” comments, including in his rant during an interview with Tucker Carlson in which he compared himself to far-right conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. A Meta spokesperson said Instagram deleted posts from his page and restricted his account, although they did not specify which specific posts violated their rules. West took to Twitter to post a photo of him with Mark Zuckerberg, saying “Look at this Mark… The way you walked is kicking me off instagram.”
