Kanye West may have his own social media platform.
Kanye West, who now goes by Ye, agreed to buy Parler, a conservative social media app.
Parlement Technologies stated in a news release on earlier today (Oct 17) that Ye has agreed in principle to buy Parler, the social media service that has attracted fans of Donald J. Trump.
“In a world where conservative opinions are considered to be controversial we have to make sure we have the right to freely express ourselves,” the rapper said in the statement released by Parlement Technologies, which did not disclose the agreed-upon price.
The deal comes after Ye’s antisemitic Twitter posts led to his account being suspended. West said “I’m going to die [sic] con 3 on the Jews” and claimed that he could not be anti-Semitic because black people are also “Jews.” He also said that he was “toyed with” by Jews.
