According to a statement recorded by a Twitter official on Sunday, West's account was suspended because it violated the terms and conditions of the social media network.
In addition, a spokeswoman for Instagram's parent company Meta informed the media that the company has removed posts from West's account for breaking its policies.
The spokesperson did not identify which posts were removed but emphasized enough that it infringed the ethical norms set by the social media platform.
The tweet that Kanye West sent, which can no longer be seen on his account, read: "I'm a little sleepy tonight but when I wake up I'm going death con 3 On JEWISH PEOPLE."
The tweet made what seems to be an allusion to a military readiness designation used by the United States known as DEFCON.
Earlier this month West was called out for wearing a misappropriate T-shirt that said "White Lives Matter" during the display of his collection at Paris Fashion Week.
The death of George Floyd in 2020 ignited a wave of cries opposing racism and police brutality, which gave rise to the term "Black Lives Matter" as a unifying slogan for the movement.
Following that, he made a statement on Twitter to the effect that he would target Jewish citizens in a post, which has since been removed from the network because it violated its guidelines.
The German sportswear giant Adidas said earlier this week that it was reevaluating its association with West after he declared his dissatisfaction with their marketing measures.
