For the past months, Kanye has been surrounded by controversies and his posts didn’t help clear them up at all. A few weeks ago, his Instagram and Twitter were taken for making “antisemitic comments.”
Now, Kanye is buying Parler with the vision of “freedom of speech.” According to the Parler team, the platform will be transferred from Parlement Technologies to his name by the end of 2022.
“Ye is making a groundbreaking move into the free speech media space and will never have to fear being removed from social media again,” said Parlement Technologies CEO, George Farmer.
Like Kanye, Parler doesn’t seem to have a good reputation among social apps. In fact, the platform was suspended from the App Store and Google Store, but then returned again by improving policies.
Parler recently received a $16M investment in Series B funding, which shows that the crypto-based app will be emerging as an authentic platform soon. With Kanye, it might even gain more followers.
With Parler, Kanye’s fans can connect with the rapper and enjoy the various benefits that traditional social media might not ever offer. As of now, no statement has been issued by Kanye himself.
