Once again, Kanye West has been suspended from Twitter for antisemitism. This time, he posted an image of a swastika within a Star of David.

Elon Musk had reinstated Ye's account as part of his policy of allowing more "free speech" on Twitter, but the disgraced rapper's latest outburst went too far even for Musk, who tweeted that Ye had "violated our rule against incitement to violence."

This comes practically immediately after Ye said "I like Hitler" and "I love Nazis" during an appearance on conspiracy theory podcast InfoWars. He said, "Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table — especially Hitler."

Ye was previously locked out of Twitter for antisemitic posts in early October.
