Kanye West has been given a ‘time out’ by Twitter after tweeting the personal details of Forbes’ chief content officer.
The rapper embarked on a series of tweets on Wednesday evening calling for musicians to own their masters, hitting out at Universal and posting the contents of his contracts.
The 43-year-old tweeted: ‘UNIVERSAL WONT TELL ME WHAT MY MASTERS COST BECAUSE THEY KNOW I CAN AFFORD TO BUY THEM.

‘Everyone please cover me in prayer … I AM ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS PEOPLE ON THE PLANET AND UNIVERSAL WONT TELL ME WHAT MY MASTERS COST BECAUSE THEY KNOW I CAN AFFORD THEM … BLACK MASTERS MATTER.
‘MY CHILDREN WILL OWN MY MASTERS … NOT YOUR CHILDREN … MY CHILDREN … MY CHILDREN … MY CHILDREN.’
After sharing the pages of 10 contracts, Kanye then posted a video of himself seemingly urinating on one of his 21 Grammy Awards, which he had placed in the toilet.
However, the Power rapper has since been locked out of his account, after sharing personal details of a journalist.
Former basketball player Rick Fox tweeted: ‘My friend @kanyewest wants you all to know that he was kicked off of @Twitter for 12 hours.’
It was later reported that Twitter requires Kanye to remove a tweet he wrote about Forbes’ editor Randall Lane before he can regain access to his account.
The tweet, which has been hidden from public view, saw Kanye sharing the mobile phone number of Lane, who he had saved in his phone has ‘Randall Forbes’.
The star tweeted alongside the contact: ‘If any of my fans want to call a white supremacist… this is the editor of Forbes.’
While fans of Kanye claimed he was being unfairly silenced, these are the standard rules enforced by Twitter when private information is shared.
