Kanye West Deletes Twitter Account, Gets Slammed by Pete Davidson on 'SNL'

Kanye West used Twitter to spread his love for President Donald Trump, rail against the haters and even talk plastics, but the controversial MAGA rapper deleted his social media accounts Saturday night.

His Ye (@kanyewest) account still appears in search results but when the link is clicked, users see message that says "Sorry, that page doesn't exist." There is a similar message on Kanye West's Instagram page, "sorry, this page isn't available. The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed."

Kanye hasn't publicly given a reason for deleting his accounts, but this is not the first time Kanye, who now wants to be refered to as Ye, has deleted his social media accounts. He deleted his accounts in 2017 only to reactivate them in April of this year.

His latest album, Yandhi, originally had a September 29 release date to coincide with his performance on Saturday Night Live, but the album's release has been pushed back to November 23, according to Pitchfork.

A week after Kanye was the musical guest on SNL, where he was booed while delivering a post show pro-Trump rant in a MAGA hat, he was the target of the popular Weekend Update segments. During the recurring segment, comedian Pete Davidson ranted about Kanye's recent comments about slavery, the 13th Amendment and taking political advice from a musical genius.

"What Kanye said after we went off the air last week was one of the worst, most awkward things I've seen here, and I've seen Chevy Chase speak to an intern," Davidson said Saturday. "Then Kanye said that Democrats broke up black families with welfare and that slavery's not real... You know how wrong about politics you need to be for like me to notice? Do you know how annoying that is? Like Kanye is a genius, but a musical genius. Like Joey Chestnut is a hot dog-eating genius, but I don't want to hear Joey Chestnut's opinions about things that aren't hot dog-related."

In September Kanye said the U.S. should abolish the 13th Amendment, though he later said he meant amend. "We will no longer outsource to other countries. We build factories here in America and create jobs. We will provide jobs for all who are free from prisons as we abolish the 13th Amendment." He later said, "The 13th Amendment is slavery in disguise, meaning it never ended. We are the solution that heals."
