Kanye West Wipes Account Clean After Instagram Suspension Over Racist Post to Trevor Noah


Once again in the short lifespan of social media, Kanye West has wiped his account clean.

Kanye was suspended from Instagram earlier this week after posting several offensive messages including a racist one pointed to talk show host (and Grammy host) Trevor Noah and one accusing Pete Davidson of exposing his kids with Kim Kardashian to drugs.

The suspension was thought to be just for 24 hours. But now Kanye’s wiped the whole account clear. It’s not deleted, but all past posts are gone.

This is a major blow since Kanye was promoting his $200 Stem Player, the only way to hear his “Donda 2” unless fans have found it– and they have — floating around the internet for free. Meanwhile, Kanye continues to suffer the results of feuding publicly with Davidson and Kardashian.

This is called a “sh*tshow” in the broadest terms.
