Kanye West has been locked out of his Twitter account after making a slew of anti-Semitic comments – as Jewish celebrities and politicians condemned him for the vile online abuse.
The rapper, 45, declared war on the Jewish community following his controversial Paris Fashion Week show, where he showcased his White Lives Matter shirts.
He was today barred from posting on his Twitter account after the shocking threats – just hours after being restricted on Instagram.
In a post, that has since been removed by Twitter, Kanye wrote: ‘I’m a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I’m going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE.’
He added: ‘The funny thing is I actually can’t be Anti Semitic because black people are actually Jew also.
‘You guys have toyed with me and tried to black ball anyone whoever opposes your agenda.’
A Twitter spokesman said: ‘The account in question has been locked due to a violation of Twitter’s policies.’ This means that the rapper will be unable to post.
Deafcon – also known as defense readiness condition – is an alert used by the US Armed Forces to indicate how quickly the military can be deployed during deadly emergencies and attacks.

Lizzy Savetsky, who is among the new cast members for the Real Housewives of New York, slammed Kanye for his repeated antisemitism on social media
West previously accused rapper Diddy of being controlled by Jewish people trying to silence his ‘White Lives Matter’ message – resulting in his Instagram account being restricted.
And Diddy responded in a post saying he hopes we stop all this ‘coonin’ and baffoonin’.’
In the veiled swipe at Kanye, he wrote: ‘We don’t have the time! We are under a state of emergency!!! Unapologetically black first!’
This comes as reality star Real Housewives of New York star Lizzy Savetsky received a barrage of anti-Jewish abuse herself for calling out Kanye’s vile antisemitism.
In a clip, Savetsky said that Instagram had become a ‘breeding ground for antisemitism’ as she berated the app – and Kanye – for his hateful comments.
Among the nasty backlash, the reality star was told to ‘get your hidey hole in the attic ready for you and the family’ – a disgraceful reference to Anne Frank, who was killed by the Nazis in 1945.
Others commented on her physical appearance, peddled anti-Semitic tropes that Jewish people control the media and banks, and one also told her that ‘Germany shoulda won’ World War Two.
She took to social media and said: ‘Thankfully Instagram has restricted Kanye’s account. That doesn’t change the fact that I continue to receive shockingly hateful, evening threatening comments in support of his anti-Semitic message.
The mother-of-three from Texas added: ‘My children’s great grandmother didn’t survive Auschwitz so we could sit idly by as people threaten our existence as a people. We have to speak up! I take these threats very seriously and you should to.’
Following her rant, Savetsky, who was announced as a new cast member in August, reposted recent Kanye’s tweet and simply wrote: ‘In case you didn’t see Kanye’s since removed tweet.’
Kanye’s post was quickly removed from Twitter – however his account was not restricted, unlike the decision made by Meta.
