Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, tested whether his account had actually been unblocked in a first tweet on Sunday. Six hours later, a message followed that read “Shalom,” Jewish for “peace.” Musk’s response to that was, “Don’t kill what you hate, keep what you love.” According to Musk, it was never his decision to block Ye’s account.

    Ye came under fire from multiple quarters. The artist made anti-Semitic statements in several interviews and tweets. As a result of his comments, the artist was denied access to his social media accounts. Adidas, fashion house Balenciaga and the American agency Creative Artists Agency, among others, also stopped their collaboration with the artist.

    In addition to Ye, former President of the United States Donald Trump is also welcome again on Twitter. His account was permanently suspended. Musk set up a poll, about 52 percent of the respondents indicated that they are in favor of a return of Trump. Trump’s account was subsequently unblocked.
