Kanye West suspended from Instagram for 24 hours after slur against Trevor Noah

Kanye West has been suspended from Instagram for 24 hours after using a racial slur in reference to comedian Trevor Noah.

The rapper posted about him after he said Kanye’s actions towards his ex-wife Kim Kardashian were “terrifying”.

Kanye’s been criticised for repeatedly posting remarks about Kim, their children and her partner Pete Davidson.




Meta, which owns Instagram, said the rapper violated the platform’s policies on hate speech and bullying.

The company also said its policies on harassment had been violated.

Although his account remains visible, Kanye is unable to do things like post, comment or send direct messages.



Other recent posts from Kanye have accused Kim of stopping him from seeing their children, something she denies.

In a statement, Meta said it would take “additional steps” if it saw further violations of its policies.

“We often take additional steps against accounts that repeatedly break our rules by placing restrictions on their account,” said the statement.

Meta added that it had also “deleted content” from Kanye’s account.
