Kanye West has been suspended from Instagram for 24 hours, a spokesperson for parent company Meta has confirmed. The temporary ban came as a result of the rapper, now legally known as Ye, using a racial slur against TV host Trevor Noah as well as repeated threats against targets including Kim Kardashian, Pete Davidson, and comedian D.L.

Hughley. A meta spokesperson told TMZ and HuffPost that the suspension is a result of Ye violating the company’s policy on hate speech, bullying and harassment.

"What she’s going through is terrifying to watch," Noah said. "What we’re seeing is one of the most powerful, one of the richest women in the world, unable to get her ex to stop texting her, to stop chasing after her, to stop harassing her.” In February it was reported that Kardashian had cited “emotional distress” from Ye's Instagram posts in a divorce filing.
