Kanye West continued the conversation from previous tweets blasting his label home, but he may have gone too far because his Twitter account was temporarily suspended on Wednesday (Sept. 16), for posting the phone number of a Forbes editor.
West’s flurry of tweets involved his ongoing battle with Universal and Sony, which led him to share copies of the various label contracts that he has signed over the years. He went on to record himself urinating on one of his Grammy Awards after calling the Forbes editor a white supremacist, and posting a screenshot of his phone number. The tweet was apparently removed by Twitter.
Former NBA player Rick Fox confirmed the suspension. “My friend @kanyewest wants you all to know that he was kicked off of @Twitter for 12 hours, “ tweeted Fox.
West, who likened the music industry to “modern day slavery,” and called himself Nat Turner, vowed to continue to fight for artistic freedom. “Please understand that I will do everything in my legal power and use my voice until all artists contracts are changed, starting with getting my masters for my children,” he tweeted prior to the suspension. “I will not stop I promise you I am petty and very personal.”
