Kanye West, who allegedly ‘punched a fan’ outside an LA members club, has been ‘banned from Instagram‘ after ‘violating the platform’s hate speech policy’. 

The rapper was kicked off the social media platform after reportedly sharing a series of photos of comedian Trevor Noah, alongside a caption that allegedly included racial slurs.

In the now-deleted post, West reportedly changed the lyrics of ‘Kumbaya’ to ‘k**n baya my lord’. The play on words is used to describe a black person who has ‘rejected’ or ‘undermined’ their own ethnicity.

The musician’s restriction from Instagram will mean he won’t be able to post, comment, or send direct messages for 24 hours.

It’s thought West became angered at Noah after he poked fun at the rapper’s ongoing drama with his soon-to-be ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, on The Daily Show on Tuesday.

On the programme, he apparently said: “What she’s going through is terrifying to watch … What we’re seeing is one of the most powerful, one of the richest women in the world, unable to get her ex to stop texting her, to stop chasing after her, to stop harassing her.”

After seeing West’s post, Noah responded: “You’re an indelible part of my life Ye. Which is why it breaks my heart to see you like this.

“I don’t care if you support Trump and I don’t care if you roast Pete. I do however care when I see you on a path that’s dangerously close to peril and pain.

“Don’t ever forget, the biggest trick racists ever played on black people was teaching us to strip each other of our blackness whenever we disagree. Tricking us into dividing ourselves up into splinters so that we would never unite into a powerful rod.”

According to TMZ, a Meta spokesperson has confirmed West has ‘violated’ Instagram’s policies.
