Kanye West Suspended From Instagram For Insulting Trevor Noah.
Kanye West’s Instagram access has been blocked for 24 hours after he made a racial insult against comedian and TV broadcaster Trevor Noah on Wednesday.
According to an Instagram spokesman, West, who is legally known as “Ye,” would be unable to post, comment, or send direct messages as part of the temporary suspension.
On his show, Noah expressed his thoughts on Kanye West’s ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, and her new beau, Pete Davidson. It was “terrifying to witness,” according to the comic.
“You may not feel sorry for Kim because she’s rich and famous, because of the way she dresses, because she appropriates Black culture, because she tells women they’re lazy, because she broke the internet and didn’t put it back together,” Noah said, “but what she’s going through is terrifying to watch and shines a spotlight on what so many women go through when they choose to leave.”
“Here’s the thing that maybe Kim Kardashian doesn’t understand. It can come off as extremely condescending to tell women the reason they are not successful is because they are too lazy to get off their a*ses and actually work,” he said.
“Because, yes, Kim Kardashian works hard but you know who else works hard? Women. But you know what a*ses don’t have? It’s Kim’s luck to be born into a rich family,” Trevor Concluded
Tackling Noah, the Donda rapper replaced the lyrics to the song “Kumbaya” with a variation of an epithet in a post that has been deleted by Instagram.
Kanye West was quite raffled by this, and in a now deleted Instagram screenshot of Trevor, wrote the lyrics to the old time song, “Kumbaya, My Lord”, except he said” K*n baya”. C**n is a racist word dating back to the slavery period, which means “a black person who is anti-black and acts against black people,” according to Urban Dictionary.
Before Kanye’s post was deleted, Trevor Noah went right into the comments section and posted a lengthy and sentimental reaction to Kanye West.
Here is the full text.
“Damn, here we go again, everybody sayin’ what’s not for him….There are few artists who have had more of an impact on me than you Ye. You took samples and turned them into symphonies. You took your pain and through the wire turned it into performance perfection. I thought differently about how I spend my money because of you, I learned to protect my child-like creativity from grown thoughts because of you, sh*t I still smile every time I put on my seatbelt because of you. You were a serious rapper who also knew when not to take himself seriously. You effortlessly brought comedy into music and made us all smile while we rapped along.
“You’re an indelible part of my life Ye. Which is why it breaks my heart to see you like this. I don’t care if you support Trump and I don’t care if you roast Pete. I do however care when I see you on a path that’s dangerously close to peril and pain. You have every right to fight for your family. But you have to know the difference between that and fighting your family. I’ve woken up too many times and read headlines about men who’ve killed their exes, their kids and then themselves. I never want to read that headline about you.❤️🙏🏽
“If you’re just joking about it all and I’m an idiot for caring, then so be it. But I’d rather be the idiot who spoke up and said something to you in life, than the cool guy who said nothing and then mourns for you in prison or the grave.
“Oh and as for Koon…clearly some people graduate but we still stupid. Don’t ever forget, the biggest trick racists ever played on black people was teaching us to strip each other of our blackness whenever we disagree. Tricking us into dividing ourselves up into splinters so that we would never unite into a powerful rod. ✊🏽 (I can’t front though, Koon Baya is also funny as sh*t 😂🤣😂). Look after yourself my brother. Hopefully one day we’ll all be laughing about this situation and how it all ended with peace and love.” Trevor Noah
