American rapper Kanye West has deleted his Twitter and Instagram accounts over reasons yet to be known by the public.
West discarded his social media pages on Saturday night (October 6, 2018).
This is the third time the rapper is deactivating his social networking pages.
Kanye West went off social media in May 2017 before reactivating his Instagram account in February, then deleting it again until reappearing on the platform in September.
He began tweeting again in April and had been an active user until Saturday night. It’s unclear why he deleted his accounts.
The incident comes after West, 41, received a barrage of criticism for controversial comments he had made.
West, who announced on Twitter last week he’s changing his name to Ye, delivered an impromptu speech supporting President Donald Trump at the end of his “Saturday Night Live” performance last week.
In the speech, which did not make it on the show, West again pledged to run for president in 2020 and called for a “dialogue, not a diatribe” in order to have events change in the future.
