Kanye West’s Instagram Hiatus

Kanye West’s Instagram habits have been a hot topic in recent years.

The American rapper, and husband of Kim Kardashian West, disappeared from social media a lot in 2018.

In fact, Kanye West’s Instagram has been deactivated since October 2018.

He had only been back on the platform for a month, after a six-month hiatus before that.

Controversy On Kanye West’s Instagram And Twitter

It seems that Kanye West will visit Instagram twice a year, cause a stir, and then disappear again.

Of course, it’s great publicity for his music! But what about those people who want their daily fix of Kanye West’s Instagram updates?

Before he deleted his account, his updates were both controversial and amusing.

Kanye, who now goes by “Ye”, still has Twitter. From there, we can see some of the ideas he was posting about.

He had some wild ideas! A lot of his tweets are religious but said in a way in which people can’t help but laugh.

Kanye West seems to think he’s on a higher plane than other people, and has even promised to run for president in the next couple of campaigns.

When he deactivated his Instagram in October, it followed a very controversial online update in which he stated the 13th amendment in the US constitution should be abolished. This is the amendment that ended slavery.

Apparently, he meant to write “amended”, instead of “abolished”.

It seems that Kanye West’s online presence is just a tad too overwhelming for a lot of people, himself included. Therefore, he has disappeared again, and in the last 5 months, he has not yet returned.

Kanye West’s Instagram Went Wild On Valentine’s Day

On Valentine’s Day 2018, Kanye West’s Instagram reappeared after another hiatus.

This time, for only hours.

In fact, Kanye West spent seven hours on Instagram that day, posting pictures of famous couples.

Apparently, this was a gesture to his wife, Kim Kardashian West. He shared photos of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz; Iman and David Bowie; Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big. However, he also shared pictures of couples who are no longer together.

Talk about romantic.

So, what can we expect if Kanye West’s Instagram returns?

  • Romantic tributes to his wife.
  • A lot of religious talk.
  • Political promises.
  • Odes to Donald Trump.

Yes, Kanye West supports Donald Trump. In fact, in one of his recent public appearances, he wore a hat which read “Make America Great Again”.

Kanye West – or Ye – is certainly a complex character! Maybe he’s a bit too complex for Instagram, a straightforward visual social media platform.

If you are interested in Kanye West’s updates, his Twitter is still active, although he hasn’t posted since January 1st.
