Kanye West to buy ‘free speech platform’ Parler
Kanye West will buy ‘free speech platform’ Parler in response to what he calls his ‘recent censorship of Big Tech’
Kanye West is set to buy the “free speech platform” Parler, the company behind the social media app has said.
Parliament Technologies said in a statement that it had reached an agreement in principle to sell “the pioneering global non-cancellable free speech platform, to Ye (formerly known as Kanye West).”
The acquisition of the social media platform comes in response to what West calls its “recent censorship of Big Tech.”
“In a world where conservative views are seen as controversial, we need to make sure we have the right to express ourselves freely,” West – who joined the platform on Monday – said according to the statement.
This agreement will change the world and change the way the world views freedom of expression,” added Parliament Technologies CEO George Farmer.
“Ye is taking a revolutionary step into the free speech media space and will never have to worry about being taken off social media again.
“Once again, Ye proves he is one step ahead of the legacy media narrative. Parliament will be honored to help him achieve his goals,” he added.
The announcement comes after West continued his attacks on Jewish people by claiming that “Jewish media” blocked a recent interview while claiming – contrary to the coroner’s report – that fentanyl caused the death of George Floyd in 2020.
West’s Twitter and Instagram accounts were also recently blocked due to the rapper’s anti-Semitic posts.

West, 45, who is still receiving major criticism for his tweet last week in which he claimed to be ‘def con 3’ against Jewish people, made his new remarks during an appearance on Revolt TV’s Drinks Champs podcast. .
The podcast is hosted by former rapper Noreaga aka NORE and DJ EFN.
West ranted in his Drinks Champs interview: ‘Could you even really do this interview? Because Mav didn’t conduct my interview. Do you know what I’m saying? They blocked me. Jewish media blocked me. This lit shit, right? I’m lit, right? I’m on. JP Morgan, I put $140 million in JP Morgan, and they treated me like shit. So if JP Morgan Chase is treating me like this, how are they treating the rest of you all?
In other sections of the interview, West said “Jews control the black voice” and sarcastically said “Jewish media” would cancel one of the hosts for saying, “F**k Black Lives Matter “.
This week, JP Morgan Chase ended its relationship with West, giving him until November 21 to withdraw his funds from their bank. The bank did not go into the details of the termination.
On Wednesday, it was announced that West’s interview on The Shop would not air. The show’s co-host, Maverick Carter, said in a statement that the reason he was pulled was because West “had a habit of reiterating more extremely dangerous hate speech and stereotyping.”
Carter’s usual co-host LeBron James was not present for the taping.
Later in his Drinks Champs interview, West said of the death of George Floyd at the hands of officer Derek Chauvin in Minneapolis in 2020: ‘He said a prayer for eight minutes, they hit him with fentanyl. If you look, the guy’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that.
Bizarrely, West goes on to say that Floyd’s death made him think of his “friend” Virgil Abloh, the fashion designer who died in November 2021 following a short battle with cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare form and aggressive cancer.
He was 41 years old.
