Page Six has reported that Kanye West has been suspended from Instagram for 24 hours after attacking Kim Kardashian, Pete Davidson, and Trevor Noah on the social media network.
The rapper’s recent posts, according to a meta representative, broke the company’s hate speech, bullying, and harassment policies. For the next 24 hours, he won’t be able to post, comment, or send direct messages.
We’ve also been advised that if West, 44, continues to break the rules, the corporation will take further action.
West’s representative did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Page Six.
West’s Instagram suspension was first reported by TMZ.

Following a series of racial slurs directed at Kardashian, 41, and her boyfriend, Davidson, 28, in recent weeks, West hurled a racial insult at Noah, 38, on Wednesday.
“It’s all in now… K–n baya, my lord, k–n baya, my lord, k–n baya, my lord, k–n baya, my lord, k–n baya, my lord, k–n baya West captioned a screenshot of a Google search result describing Noah as a “South African comedian” as “Oooo’ lord K–n baya.”
West was ridiculing Noah by replacing the original words in “Kumbaya” with the offensive “k–n” slur.
The comic discussed his relationship with Kardashian and Davidson on “The Daily Show,” prompting West’s harsh posts.
“It’s terrifying to watch what [Kardashian] is going through, and it shines a light on what so many women go through when they choose to leave,” Noah said on his Comedy Central program.
Noah likened West’s predicament with Kardashian to his own childhood experience of seeing abuse. Before his stepfather shot his mother, Patricia, in the head, he said that many thought she was “overreacting.” (Patricia escaped the assassination attempt.)
“We must ask ourselves questions as a society.” Do we want to see a vehicle crash unfold when we thought we saw it coming?” On the show, Noah asked.
Kardashian previously denied West’s claims, writing on Instagram, “Please stop with this narrative, you were just here this morning picking up the kids for school.”
After filing for divorce from West in February 2021, the reality TV actress, who was declared legally single earlier this month, began seeing “Saturday Night Live” star Davidson last fall.
West has subsequently been accused of harassing her online and sending threatening messages about Davidson, according to her.
“Divorce is difficult enough on our children and Kanye’s obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and publicly is only causing further pain for all,” Kardashian said in a statement in February.
