Elon Musk has suspended Kanye West from Twitter less than two weeks after welcoming the rapper back to the platform.
The rapper, who now goes by the name Ye, was suspended for posting a symbol resembling a swastika blended with a star of David.
It came hours after he praised Adolf Hitler and the Nazis in an interview with right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
Twitter said Ye was suspended for violating its policy against inciting violence and Musk pointed to the symbol he posted as the reason.
After a Twitter user asked him to “fix Kanye please”, Musk replied: “I tried my best”.
“Despite that, he again violated our rule against incitement to violence,” he said. “Account will be suspended.”
Ye was one of several high-profile personalities to be reinstated to Twitter after Musk took over as owner.
His account was unlocked less than two weeks ago after he was previously restricted for antisemitism.
Ye has seen his business relationships crumble in recent weeks as his antisemitic comments saw brands cutting ties with him.
He has previously spoken openly about his struggles with mental health.
In his interview with Alex Jones, West hid his face behind a mask as he repeatedly praised the Nazis and Adolf Hitler.
He began by saying that he sees good in every person, adding, “especially Hitler”.
He said people need to “stop dissing the Nazis”, insisting they “did good things too”.
As Jones got increasingly uncomfortable with his comments, Ye doubled down saying, “I love Nazis”.
“There’s a lot of things that I love about Hitler,” he said. “A lot of things.”
