Instagram Suspends Kanye West’s Account After Allegedly Racial Slur Targeting Trevor Noah
Never one to keep silent when he feels slighted, Kanye West has fired shots at The Daily Show host Trevor Noah.
The dram all stayed after Trevor Noah decided to use a segment of his to comment on the ongoing divorce between Kanye West and his estranged wife Kim Kardashian.
In the segment, he noted hos the “Donda” started on a calm romantic note, asking Kim Kardashian to get back to him. But along the line, he’s become belligerent, and he thinks people have to pay attention to this.
He drew special attention to the music video in which Kanye West chopped off an anime of Kim Kardashian’s new lover Pete Davidson’s head and buried him. Kanye West would counter that it was just rap and he had no intention to hurt his adversary.
Things took a dramatic turn as Kanye West shared a screenshot of a Google search of Trevor Noah, with the caption: “All in together now… Koon baya my lord koon baya Koon baya my lord Koon baya Oooo’ lord Koon baya.”
It was thought to be a racial slur, and the reactions from around the world were swift, with many condemning Kanye west for it.
Those words made Instagram suspend his account for one day.
