Kanye West has been locked out of his Twitter and Instagram accounts after posting anti-Semitic messages. The star had his Instagram account suspended at the weekend after accusing rapper Diddy of being controlled by Jewish people.

The message played into a long-standing anti-Semitic conspiracy theory.

West responded to his suspension by rejoining Twitter and saying he would go “death con 3 On Jewish people”, earning him a second disbarment.

Both platforms removed West’s posts and said the star had violated policies on hate speech.

The incident comes after West drew criticism for wearing a “white lives matter” T-shirt during Paris fashion week.

The slogan also appeared during his YZY fashion show, modelled by Selah Marley, the daughter of Lauryn Hill and granddaughter of Bob Marley.

The Anti-Defamation League has called the phrase “hate speech” and attributed it to white supremacists, who began using it in 2015 in response to the Black Lives Matter movement.

West’s stunt immediately drew criticism from his peers.

Among them was Diddy, who posted an Instagram video saying he “did not rock” with the slogan. “All lives matter – but that Black Lives Matter, don’t play with it. Don’t wear the shirt. Don’t buy the shirt. Don’t play with the shirt. It’s not a joke,” he said.
