12:20 PM PT — Kanye‘s Instagram account has reportedly been slapped with restrictions — courtesy of Meta. THR reports the company has deleted a bunch of content from his page … even though there are still posts on there from the past. Behind the scenes, however, Zuck and co. have reigned Ye in — blocking him from throwing up new stuff, DM’ing or writing comments.
The exact reason for the halt is unclear … all THR says is that Meta cited Kanye violating its platform policies. No word on when he’ll get his full privileges back.
Kanye has already responded … blasting MZ on Twitter. In his mind, he feels he’s been banned.
Kanye West wore his ‘White Lives Matter’ shirt at his daughter’s basketball game … right behind Kim Kardashian, no less.
The controversial long-sleeve was on display Friday night while North played in Thousand Oaks with other kids — plus, a bunch of parents on hand to watch. Ye was rocking it proudly, and he was within arms reach of the mother of his children too.
Kim doesn’t appear to acknowledge him in the photos, and eyewitnesses say she never turned to look in his direction either while they were both there. We’re also told KW had a cameraman with him who looked busy. No word of any trouble due to his wardrobe choice.
What we do know … Kim completely avoided him outside of this seating arrangement. We’re told she actually moved her car to the opposite side of the building once he rolled up … in order to avoid any run-ins afterward. Indeed, her focus was all on North for this outing.
It’s interesting … Ye seemed pretty animated here, and he wasn’t trying to hide what he was wearing either. If anything, you could argue he was trying to draw attention to himself.
Even at this point, though, Kanye’s rationale behind the move isn’t all that clear. He did say he thought Black Lives Matter was a scam, but aside from that — he hasn’t thoughtfully laid out his position … although he has thoroughly described the backlash coming his way.
