Kanye West’s ‘Shalom’ Tweet Controversy

Fans criticized Kanye West for his ‘Shalom’ tweet after he curtailed his assertiveness.

Here’s everything you need to know.

What does Kanye West’s ‘Shalom’ mean?

Kanye West announced his comeback on social media platforms via Twitter on November 20th.

He wrote the Hebrew greeting ‘Shalom’, which translates to ‘peace’ in English.

If you didn’t know, West was restricted from using Twitter after his controversial ‘death hoax against Jews 3’ tweet. The platform banned West for violating social media rules and norms.

Meanwhile, his return to Twitter comes just before Elon Musk completes a $44 billion deal to acquire the social media giant.

Beyond that, West has lost many potential deals with big brands after anti-Semitic acts on the internet. Adidas in particular cut ties with West after Yeezy’s multi-billion dollar collaboration.

Fans object to Kanye West’s ‘Shalom’ tweet.

Netizens took to social media about Kanye West’s ‘Shalom’ message and Twitter comeback.

One user said, ‘Kanye West’s ‘Shalom’ tweet was the last straw. Looking forward to logging back in after Elon Musk no longer owns it!’

Moreover, someone said, ‘How dare Kanye answer “Shalom” considering his anti-Semitic comments. Who does he think he is?!’

Another user said ‘Shalom bigot Kanye, don’t play Descon 3 again.

Elon Musk welcomes the return of Kanye West on Twitter.

Kanye West confirmed that his account was actually active before sharing the ‘Shalom’ message.

“Test test test my twitter is unblocked,” he tweeted.

However, Twitter’s new CEO, Elon Musk, responded to West’s post.

He said, ‘Do not kill what you hate. Save what you love.’

For the unsavvy, Musk is in the news for his recent confusing takeover of the microblogging platform.

Meanwhile, West, who has changed his name to Ye, announced that he would observe a 30-day ‘cleansing’ and ‘oral fast’ on November 4th. She also said she would refrain from alcohol, adult films and sexual activity.

He insisted, ‘I won’t tell anyone for a month’.

Moreover, the 45-year-old rapper went silent for two weeks after sharing the same tweet 13 more times.
