Kanye West has announced that he will be doing a 30-day “fast” from talking, alcohol, sex and pornography.
The rapper, who legally changed his name to Ye, posted an announcement on Twitter with the caption, “I am not talking to anyone in a month.”
“I’m doing a 30-day cleanse, verbal fasting. No alcohol, no adult movies, no sex,” the Saint Pablo singer wrote on Twitter.
The Grammy winner then concluded that “Twitter still shines”, noting that he will remain active on the social media platform during the hiatus.
News of Ye’s internet cancellation comes amid a wave of controversy surrounding the musician.
Earlier this month, the Donda star made headlines with her racist and anti-Semitic comments.
During an interview with Piers Morgan on his show called Uncensored, the hip-hop artist declined to apologize for his anti-Semitic comments, but admitted that he “only feels sorry for the people his actions have hurt in the name of “fighting fire with fire”.
“I will say I’m sorry for the people I hurt with my ‘death con’ speech with confusion,” he said.
“I feel hurt and confused and I feel sorry for the families of people who have nothing to do with the trauma I went through.”
The outrageous comments of the father of four have cost him several lucrative fashion collaborations.
Adidas has announced that it has cut ties with Ye for his “harmful” and “dangerous” comments.
The German sportswear giant added that the move would cost 250 million euros ($420 million).
Adidas said in a statement: “Adidas does not condone anti-Semitism or any other type of hate speech.
“Ye’s recent comments and actions are unacceptable, hateful and dangerous, and violate the company’s values of diversity, inclusion, mutual respect and fairness.”
Adidas has teamed up with the likes of Gap and Balenciaga to end their partnership with the musician.
Kering, Balenciaga’s mother, said in a statement to WWD: “Balenciaga no longer has any relationships or plans for future projects related to this artist.”
According to WWD, the French company did not give further details.
