Kanye West has always been outspoken; a new business move could help that continue. The rapper is set to acquire conservative media platform Parler.
Ye has been on a controversial tour that includes fashion statements and exposing messages from other celebrities.
The “Donda” rapper is acquiring Parler, a social media platform supporting conservative politics.
On their official Instagram account, the new social media platform posted a press release with a message from Ye.
In the press release, Kanye said:
“In a world where conservative opinions are considered to be controversial, we have to make sure we have the right to freely express ourselves.”
Recently, Kanye has had his social media pages suspended or locked due to previous statements.
This move follows after Kanye appeared on HBO’s The Shop and had the episode pulled due to his comments that were perceived as anti-semitic.
Kanye was also on Drink Champs, where he riled up social media with his takes on Jewish people and George Floyd. Co-host N.O.R.E. was pleased with the interview’s success, which had over a million views in less than 24 hours.
Due to the backlash, the episode was removed from YouTube, and some fans were also not pleased with co-host DJ EFN for being “irresponsible” for not pushing back toward Kanye’s comments.
