Kanye West has deleted all of her Instagram posts after being suspended for 24 hours for attacking Trevor Noah with a racial slur on the soon-to-be-ending social media platform.
He took the move after the rapper’s account was locked by the social media platform for 24 hours after he insulted Noah, who writes for Pete Davidson, Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend.
Instagram’s parent company Meta took action on Wednesday and said it considers West’s post a violation of the platform’s policies on hate speech, harassment and bullying.

Meta confirmed to The Independent that it had removed content from West’s account and temporarily restricted the account from posting, commenting and sending direct messages.
In his post aimed at Noah, West (now known only as Ye) repeatedly referred to him as “k**n” after the comedian said that the situation between West, his ex-wife, and Davidson was “scary to watch”.

“I don’t care if you support Trump and I don’t care if you bake Pete. However, I really care when I see you on the dangerous road close to danger and pain… Never forget, the biggest racists cheat ever played with black people is to teach us to strip each other of black skin whenever we disagree. Trick us to shreds so that we can never unite into one strong stick. “
Noah is said to have incited the fury of the West with comments made about his show, when he mentioned the dynamics between the rapper, Kardashian and Davidson.
