Twitter’s new owner, Elon Musk, said on the platform that he “personally wanted to punch Kanye” after the produce and fashion icon posted a Raelian symbol to his personal Twitter page. The Raelian symbol is a star of David with a swastika in the middle.
This comes after Musk permanently banned Ye from the platform, claiming the potential presidential candidate “violated our rule against incitement to violence.”
In criminal law, incitement is the encouragement of another person to commit a crime. Depending on the jurisdiction, some or all types of incitement may be illegal. Where illegal, it is known as an inchoate offense, where harm is intended but may or may not have actually occurred.
It is a felony under federal law to intentionally “solicit, command, induce, or otherwise endeavor to persuade” another person to engage in a crime of violence against a person or property. 18 U.S.C. § 373
Therefore, the language used by the social media mogul could b interpreted as suggesting Ye (Kanye West) committed a felony for posting the religious symbol.
Meanwhile, Twitter users continue to post portrayals of Ye bing murdered. These Tweets have yet to be taken down, nor hav the Twitter users ben permanently suspended.
