Kanye West Is Buying His Own Conservative Social Media Platform

Kanye West is going to own his own social media site soon. It’s been confirmed the rapper has agreed to buy Parler, a conservative, right-wing online platform. The news comes after Ye was banned from several social media sites following a series of controversial comments.

“In a world where conservative opinions are considered to be controversial, we have to make sure we have the right to freely express ourselves,” Kanye said in a statement released by Parler announcing the deal.

The financial terms of the deal haven’t been revealed. But with a reported net worth of $2 billion, Ye likely has the necessary funds.

However, his finances have been impacted by his recent controversial behavior. In September, the rapper terminated his partnership with Gap after expressing dissatisfaction.

Then, in October, his long-time collaborator Adidas said they were reviewing the terms of their partnership with his Yeezy brand.

“After repeated efforts to privately resolve the situation, we have taken the decision to place the partnership under review,” Adidas said in a statement. “We will continue to co-manage the current product during this period.”

Adidas’ announcement came after Kanye showed up to a Yeezy show during Parison Fashion Week wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt alongside Candace Owens. The designer also had models in the show rock the shirt.

Kanye shared an image of the shirt to Instagram, defending his decision to wear it: “Here’s my latest response when people ask me why I made a tee that says white lives matter. THEY DO.”

Prior to that, he made a series of offensive comments where he called the Black Lives Matter movement a “scam.” “Everyone knows that Black Lives Matter was a scam,” he wrote on his Instagram Story. “Now it’s over. You’re welcome.”

More recently, Kanye made a series of antisemitic comments on social media, including a tweet where he said he would go “death con 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE.” Ye has since been banned from Instagram and Twitter.

Kanye’s comments also recently got him dumped by his bank JP Morgan. Candace Owens revealed the news on Twitter alongside an image of the letter that was sent to the Yeezy founder.

“I was told there was no official reason given, but they sent this letter as well to confirm that he has until late November to find another place for the Yeezy empire to bank,” she wrote.

“Dear Ye, We are sending this letter to confirm our recent discussion with [redacted name] that JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A. (The Bank) has decided to end its banking relation with Yeezy LLC and its affiliated entities,” the letter read.

Kanye has until November to find another bank to host his Yeezy brand.
