Kanye West isn’t buying the Parler social media platform after all

Despite an October statement hailing a groundbreaking deal to buy the right-wing social media app, Parler won’t sell the platform to Ye, the rapper formerly known as Kanye West.

The company announced it reached a mutual termination agreement on Dec. 1, hours after the rapper and outspoken anti-Semite praised Adolf Hitler and his love for the Nazis during an InfoWars show with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

They announced that the decision was made in mid-November.

“Parlement Technologies has confirmed that the company has mutually agreed with Ye to terminate Parler’s intention to sell,” according to the statement. “This decision was made in the interests of both parties in mid-November. Parler will continue to look for future growth opportunities and the evolution of the platform for our vibrant community.

In October, George Farmer, the chief executive of the app’s parent company Parliament Technologies, said the now-dissolved deal will ‘change the world’ and ‘change the way the world thinks about free speech’. in his statement celebrating the purchase of West for an undisclosed sum.

“Once again, Ye proves he is one step ahead of the legacy media narrative. Parliament will be honored to help him achieve his goals,” according to Mr Farmer’s statement.

On Thursday, West – flanked by white nationalist Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes – said “I love Hitler,” claimed the Nazis “did good things too” and insisted people should “stop to disband the Nazis all the time” in an ominous anti-Semitic screed.

The interview took place about two weeks after West, who intends to run for president in 2024, had dinner with former President Donald Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort accompanied by Mr Fuentes , who joined West’s campaign.

Mr. Farmer is also the husband of far-right personality Candace Owens, who placed himself in the rapper’s orbit; they both congratulated each other and the pair wore matching “white lives matter” t-shirts in October.

Talking gained more users and attention in 2020 as prominent right-wing figures migrated to the platform after being suspended from other larger platforms for violating user policy, including hate speech, medical and electoral misinformation and other objectionable content.

The app was largely inaccessible following the attack on the United States Capitol after its users openly discussed their plans to violently disrupt the 2020 presidential election on January 6, 2021. Apple said so. removed from its App Store for its inclusion of “threats of violence”. and Illegal Activities” on the Platform. Google Play also removed the app over fears its users would incite violence.

Apple told the company that it “has received numerous complaints of objectionable content in your Parler service, accusations that the Parler app has been used to plan, coordinate and facilitate illegal activities” in Washington DC.

“The app also appears to continue to be used to plan and facilitate yet other illegal and dangerous activities,” according to his message to the company in January 2021.

Parler was relaunched a month after the attack, but it was not available on the App Store until May 2021. Google Play did not allow users to download the app until September this year.
