Kanye West’s Instagram has been suspended for 24 hours!

According to reports by TMZ and Rolling Stone, rapper Kanye West, who has pretty much been too vocal about his life on Instagram recently, has been suspended by Meta from posting, commenting, and even sending messages to anyone.

A representative from Meta (parent company of Instagram) said that the rapper violated the platform’s policies, including hate speech, harassment, and cyberbullying, which led to his account’s suspension for 24 hours.

The most recent person who was attacked by Kanye West verbally was Trevor Noah, who recently shared his thoughts on the rapper and beauty mogul’s divorce and specifically mentioned the way Kanye West has been treating Kim Kardashian.

The Daily Show host, Trevor Noah, shared a clip in which she said that more people should pay attention to the fact that Kanye West has become more and more belligerent in how he tries to win Kim Kardashian back. He went on to state that when it all started, it seemed like there was a lot of love left between the two, but then Kanye West went ahead and started accusing Kim Kardashian of not allowing him to meet his kids, allowing North to use TikTok, dropped a music video, "Eazy," in which he was seen burying Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend, Pete Davidson, alive, talking about their divorce proceedings publicly etc.

In his video, Trevor added that he understands that art is a form of therapy, but therapy is therapy, insinuating that the rapper should seek help. He further said that he understands that Kanye West has shared that he struggles with mental health and his art is his therapy, but it’s kind of making you uncomfortable and he needs to understand it.

The host went ahead and spoke about the way Kanye West has been treating Kim Kardashian and said their situation is like that where the woman wants her ex to leave her alone and added that he sees a woman who wants to live her life without being harassed by her ex-husband, ex-boyfriend, or ex-anyone. Trevor Noah said that people might not feel sorry for Kim Kardashian because she’s rich and famous, but what she is going through right now is literally sad and terrifying to witness. And mentioned that her situation highlights the situation of several women who choose to leave their toxic relationships.

The Daily Show host examines the situation to explain that what the audience is seeing here is one of the most powerful and richest women in the world are unable to get her ex to stop texting her, chasing her, and harassing her online. He finally added that what are the chances of normal women escaping their toxic relationships when Kim Kardashian is not able to do it?

Maybe Kanye West did not like to hear the truth, so he went ahead and left a racial slur on his post, which violated Meta’s policies and led to the authorities taking a step against the rapper. Kanye West also criticized actor D.L. Hughley and Saturday Night Live writer Pete Davidson’s friend Dave Sirus.

Kanye West also shared a picture of North’s school bag, which according to him, was taken when he was ‘allowed’ to see them last week. Three pins were seen on her bag, an alien’s face between Kim’s and Kanye’s faces pin, and he wrote that this is one of the reasons why he goes so hard for his family because he is wired to protect his family at any cost. Kim Kardashian commented (now deleted) on his post that he should just stop airing this narrative because he saw the kids in the morning.

Will this 24-hour ban on his social media make any difference to Kanye West or not? That’s a different story, but what Trevor Noah pointed out in breaking down their relationship right now is essential for people to understand that this has not been easy for Kim Kardashian. No matter how successful and famous one might be but literally being dragged, accused and harassed by an ex and father of your children is not easy and the way Kim Kardashian is handling things right now is commendable.
