Kanye West, who has time and again abandoned social media, pulled up the same stunt after he cleaned up his Instagram account on Monday, November 29. The ‘College Dropout’ hitmaker deleted all the posts on his wall but refrained from deleting his account. The acclaimed hip-hop artist’s move comes after the death of his close friend and fashion genius Virgil Abloh.
However, many on social media joked that Kanye West wiped off his Instagram account after his estranged wife Kim Kardashian went on a date with her new boyfriend Pete Davidson. Kanye, who now simply goes by the name of Ye, had shared a Thanksgiving prayer as his last post a few days ago where he took accountability for his mistakes. The Grammy-winning rapper had also shared a throwback picture of him with Kim Kardashian on one of his Instagram stories with a TMZ headline, “Kanye West Says God Will Bring Him and Kim Back Together, Inspire Millions."

Why did Kanye West wipe off his Instagram again?

Kanye West currently enjoys close to 10 million followers on Instagram. Ye did not share any reason behind his move but this is also not the first time when the rap icon wiped all his posts off the photo-sharing app. Kanye had joined Instagram in 2016 and had deleted it along with Twitter in the same year. He, of course, later returned to both the social media platforms but left Instagram again in early 2018.
The Internet claimed that Kanye has been through a lot this year- the reason why he wiped off his Instagram account again. Apart from Kim Kardashian dating ‘SNL’ star Pete Davidson, Ye lost his dear friend Virgil on Sunday, November 28. He had also dedicated his latest Sunday prayer to the Off-White founder. Speaking of his Thanksgiving prayer clip, Kanye in his last Instagram post spoke about alcoholism, panic attack episodes, estranged wife Kim Kardashian, and him running for the post of President last year. The Atlanta native’s Thanksgiving video came with a caption that simply read, “Thanksgiving Prayer” followed by an emoticon of a white dove. Social media users, who usually clown the hip-hop heavyweight for his remarks, got impressed with his latest move as many claimed the video was sad but real.

‘Kanye doing more weird s**t for attention’

Social media users rushed to Twitter moments after Kanye wiped off his Instagram account. “He tryna be youngboy”, joked one fan as another stated, “His really gutted about Virgil Abloh's death huh.”  Another user chimed in, “Yay! Kanye doing more weird s**t for attention, so exciting!” One user added, “Someone just found out about Pete.”
Meanwhile, one user tweeted, “Man, one of his best friends just passed and his wife has moved on. What a tough week for my guy.” One added, “I think Ye deleted his post because Kim’s not coming back”, as another mentioned, “Damn praying for ye he lost his mind wife in now friend.” And, one user concluded, “Stop giving him attention and feeding his ego. Dude's brain turned into mashed potatoes after his mom passed away and every album since MBDTF has been psychosis babble.”
