The deal for Kanye West to buy Twitter’s alternative parlor, which is mostly used by conservatives and far-right folks, has ended, the company announced Thursday, after the rapper’s controversial comments.
Perler said in a brief statement that the company and Kanye West “mutually agreed” to terminate the deal in mid-November.
The announcement comes just hours after Kanye West went on an anti-Semitic rant while appearing on a livestream with conspiracy theorist Alex Jones. He said he likes Hitler.
“They did a good job too. We have to stop vilifying the Nazis all the time,” West told Alex Jones. The comments were widely denounced on social media.
“Parlement Technologies would like to confirm that the company has reached a mutual agreement with Ye to terminate its intention to sell Parler,” the company said. “This decision was made in the interests of both parties in mid-November.”
