There are plenty of people who have – rightly – called for Kanye to be banned from social media because of his statements. However, Layah Heilpern presents quite an interesting view here, as Kanye’s controversial comments have helped to shed some light on him. It doesn’t take a genius to work out that he’s a nasty person!
However, banning accounts on social media is much more common than you might think. According to Wired, Twitter banned around 925,000 accounts in the first sixth months of 2022. These were mostly fake accounts – but some of them were just as harmful as Kanye’s account, and Twitter banned them accordingly.
