Kanye ‘Ye’ West launches official Telegram channel
Kanye West is showing no signs of staying out of the headlines. The rap star has been at the center of a lot of controversy in the last few weeks; several of his recent appearances and public comments have made headlines and received condemnation from various groups and the public. And now, Ye has moved his social media presence to a new platform Telegram: Ye
As previously covered on We Got This Covered, West was banned from Twitter after a series of antisemitic comments. And these comments came after an appearance on the Alex Jones' Infowars show, where West made even more controversial and antisemitic comments. This, plus the already mounting condemnation of Kanye from various groups, forced Elon Musk, Twitter’s current owner, to publicly ban West from the platform.
Just clarifying that his account is being suspended for incitement to violence, not an unflattering pic of me being hosed by Ari.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) December 2, 2022
Frankly, I found those pics to be helpful motivation to lose weight!
Since this ban, West has tried other platforms, including a brief stint on Truth Social. However, he has recently opened a new social media channel, launching an official channel on Telegram. Telegram is an instant-messaging service that allows users to create large group chats.
