Rapper Kanye West has publicly declared his intentions to buy the social media platform, Parler.
This comes days after his Instagram and Twitter accounts were restricted for sharing an anti-semitic post.
Ye had stirred reactions from many after he sported a shirt with the inscription “White Lives Matter” at the Yeezy fashion show in Paris.
Many criticized the inscribed text, including the hip-hop artist Sean Combs, popularly known as Puff Daddy.
Reacting to Puff Daddy’s criticism, Ye accused the musician of being controlled by Jewish people. The post shared on Instagram and Twitter led to the restriction of his accounts.
In a recent revelation, the rapper publicly declared his intentions of buying the conservatives social platform, Parler. This was also disclosed in a tweet shared by the Parler app.
“In a world where conservative opinions are considered to be controversial, we have to make sure we have the right to freely express ourselves,” wrote Kanye in a statement.
Parler was launched in 2018 and has since become a haven for supporters of former US president Donald Trump and far-right users who say they have been censored by other social media platforms such as Twitter.
The network describes itself as “a guiding force in the fight against Big Tech, Big Government, censorship, and cancel culture.”
