Kanye West deletes his social media accounts again
Controversial rapper Kanye West deletes his social media account another time after facing backlash for posting controversial messages on his social media pages this last week.
The 41-year-old rapper removed his online presence on Saturday at around 1:45 PM Pacific Time.
The Yeezus creator’s disappearance from social media followed his Sunday tweet where he stated the 13th amendment should be abolished.
He later clarified his post, saying it should be amended.
Kanye also received a lot of social media backlash after he donned a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat on Saturday Night Live.
This isn’t the first time the husband of Kim Kardashian has removed himself from social media.
In May of 2017, he deleted his accounts and stayed off for 11 months, only returning in April of this year ahead of his newest album’s release.
The My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy rapper made no announcement prior to the deletion of his accounts.
There is plenty of speculation surrounding Kanye’s choice to remove himself from social media, but the answer may be as simple as he doesn’t want any distractions.
The rapper recently revealed that he would be heading to Africa to finish up work on his forthcoming album, Yandhi.
The record is due out November 23 and features an array of guest artists, including Ty Dolla Sign, 070 Shake, 6ix9ine, Kid Cudi, Young Thug, Rihanna, and posthumous vocals from XXXTentacion.
