American artist Ye, formerly Kanye West, has recently agreed to buy the social media platform, Parler, a conservative social media app, and an app similar to Twitter, after being suspended on Instagram and Twitter for his recent antisemitic posts. “When I got kicked off of Instagram and Twitter at the time, I knew it was time to acquire my own platform, ” Ye said to Bloomberg News (Oct. 17). He also made an antisemitic conspiracy theory that rapper Sean Combs, (or P. Diddy) was being controlled by Jews, also making a tweet saying that he would, “go deathcon 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.”


Parler, the conservative social media app that launched in September of 2018, had been one of several social media platforms that rose to controversy during the presidency of Donald Trump, allegedly claiming that his supporters were given unfair treatment on Twitter. To George Farmer, Parler is described as an app that “promotes freedom of speech”. But it and other apps had been used for plotting the attack on the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021.


Trump made controversial tweets on his official account which led to him getting suspended on both Twitter and Instagram, which even led to him creating a similar social media platform, Truth Social, for similar reasons. Parler was even removed from the Google Play Store but was re-released in September 2022.


George Farmer, CEO of Parler, and husband to Candace Owens, is excited to have Ye buying Parler. Owens is currently showing support for Ye, saying on a ‘parley’ (the alternative name for a tweet), “I love that there are people in the world that are genuinely upset because the media can’t decide who my friends are. Ye is my friend. You have no power to change that.” With Ye having a net worth of $2 billion as of 2022, it may be rather affordable for him to purchase the app. Most of it comes from his brand of Yeezy sneakers and collaborations with Adidas, The Gap, and temporarily Balenciaga.


Besides the posts he made on social media, he isn’t doing the best right now. American rapper 50 Cent even stated that Ye “is in a dangerous area”. In the recently deleted podcast, Drink Champs, he claimed that George Floyd “died of fentanyl” rather than being kneeled to death. This immediately sparked controversy, including George Floyd’s family, even thinking of suing Ye for false claims. But days later, the Floyd Family settled a multi-million lawsuit to him for $250 million.


Days later after the podcast, Ye was interviewed by NewsNation journalist Chris Cuomo for his anti-Semitic posts which turned into a heated debate. The media mostly quoted a part where Ye said “La La La La” while Cuomo was talking over him.
