"I tried my best. Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended," Musk tweeted on Thursday night. As of press time, none of Ye's tweets were available on his account page.
The suspension comes on the heels of a series of heated online exchanges between Ye and Musk. Ye has repeatedly made antisemitic comments in interviews over the past week and has shared a long string of controversial tweets, including an image of a swastika superimposed over the Star of David.
"Sorry, but you have gone too far. This is not love," Musk texted Ye in response to the image, according to a screenshot of their conversation Ye shared on Twitter before his suspension.
Ye also shared screenshots on Truth Social — Donald Trump's social media site — of his text conversation with Musk. Included in that text exchange was a screenshot from Ye's Twitter account that indicated he'd been put in a 12-hour Twitter timeout.
Ye appeared to know his suspension was imminent. Earlier on Thursday, he posted an unflattering image of Musk on a yacht, along with the caption: "Let's always remember this as my final tweet #ye24."
