Kanye West has received a 24-hour suspension from Instagram amid a warning from the social media platform for violating their policies on hate speech, harassment and bullying.
West – who recently legally changed his name to Ye – has been sharing a slew of Instagram posts directed at the Saturday Night Live actor as well as Kim amid their ongoing divorce proceedings.
A spokesperson for Meta, the parent company of Instagram, has confirmed to TMZ that the musician's account has been suspended due to his neglect of the community guidelines.

The app revealed that they will take further action in future if Kanye's behaviour continues after the initial suspension.
The publication was told by Meta that the short-term ban will prevent the hit-maker from posting, commenting and sending messages to other accounts.
However, his profile still remains online along with his most of his recent posts, although he has deleted some controversial photos himself.
Kanye was hit with backlash after he hurled a racial slur at Trevor Noah following the comedian's statement regarding the highly publicised feud between the rapper, SNL actor and SKIMS founder.
In his most recent string of posts, Kanye hit out at the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star after she allowed their eldest daughter, North West, 8, to post to TikTok yet again.
North's account on the video-sharing platform has been a frequent grievance that Ye's speaks about online. He also revealed private text messages between him and Davidson in a now-deleted video.
