Kanye West was back on Twitter Sunday, after being kicked off the platform on October 9th for violating Twitter’s policies.
The rapper’s renewed access to the social media platform came less than 24 hours after Musk declared he had reinstated a number of other suspended accounts, including Donald Trump, according to CBS News. West resurfaced on Twitter with a simple message. “Testing Testing Seeing if my Twitter is unblocked,” West wrote in his post. Twitter didn’t say which policies West violated, but his suspension came at the same time that Adidas, JP Morgan, Balenciaga, and other major brand names cut ties with him as a result of his anti-Semitic comments.

Musk posted a comment almost immediately after West put up his test message. “Don’t kill what ye hate to Save what ye love,” Musk wrote, making reference to West’s recent name change to the moniker ‘Ye.’
The last message West posted to Twitter before being kicked off was posted on October 9. He wrote that he was “going death [sic] con 3” on Jewish people, followed shortly by another message which read, “The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti-Semitic because black people are actually Jew also.” He was then promptly removed and the messages were scrubbed from the platform shortly thereafter, according to CBS News.
Shalom : )— ye (@kanyewest) November 20, 2022
West’s fans and followers were quick to respond to his recent test message, which prompted West to return to posting questionable content on the platform once again.
In spite of the backlash he faced for his anti-Semitic comments, West chose to write a simple tweet that said “Shalom,” to his newly reinstated Twitter page.
West was also booted from Instagram and has not yet been invited back to that platform.
