It looks like Kanye West has once again bid farewell to his Instagram account, leaving his millions of followers wondering why.

On April 18, the rapper posted a screenshot of the Instagram deactivation page, hinting that he would be taking a break from the platform.

This isn’t the first time that Kanye has left Instagram. In fact, his account was suspended for 24 hours in March of last year for violating the app’s policies on hate speech, bullying, and harassment. He also faced a Twitter ban in 2022 after making anti-Semitic comments.

However, it seems that he has now had enough of the social media platform once again.

Some are also wondering whether the recent failed attempt to purchase the conservative social media platform Parlor had anything to do with his decision to leave Instagram.

Fans will have to wait and see whether he will return to the platform in the future, or if this marks the end of his Instagram presence for good.
