Apparently, JPMorgan Chase Bank is now canceling accounts for people if the company doesn’t agree with their social media posts.
The bank sent a letter to West that confirmed they would no longer provide services to Yeezy, LLC and its affiliated entities.
Chase bank said they’re giving West enough time to switch to another financial institution, but explained that he needs to stop using the bank services.
The bank gave no official reason for canceling West’s accounts, but it’s widely speculated that the bank disagrees with West’s personal views and social media posts.
In response, Kanye West said he’s “happy” that he crossed the line so the country can discuss how “cancel culture” is out of control.
West is worth about $2 billion and clearly isn’t afraid to speak publicly about his personal views. He was recently seen in Paris wearing a “white lives matter” t-shirt.
“Hey, if you call somebody out for bad business, that means you’re being anti-Semitic,” West told reporters.
“I feel happy to have crossed the line of that idea so we can speak openly about things like getting canceled by a bank,” he continued.
West was accused of posting an anti-Semitic image on Instagram that show a text conversation with rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs with the caption “Jesus is Jew.” West was temporarily restricted on Instagram.
Kanye criticized CEO Mark Zuckerberg over the Instagram restriction. He said, “How you gone [sic] kick me off Instagram[?] You used to be my n****.”
