In the wake of his latest antisemitic and incoherent rant, rapper Kanye West has agreed to purchase Parler, the alternative social media platform favored by conservatives.
Parler’s parent company announced that West had made “a groundbreaking move into the free speech media space and will never have to fear being removed from social media again.” West’s decision comes after he was suspended from Twitter for an antisemitic tweet.
Speaking on Fox News this Monday, Parler CEO George Farmer said that West’s tweet was “worded very badly” and a “mistake,” but he’s “obviously willing to have conversations that plenty of people want to have and I think that he’s trying to engage in the free speech environment.”
“Specific comments about his personal opinions, obviously I can’t comment because I’m not him, but I would like to say that he’s now in a place where he’s fallen victim to the cancellation narrative,” Farmer said. “Whether or not what he said offended some people, of course, is up for conversation. The only cure for wrong ideas is more ideas.”
