Kanye West has announced that he will be taking a “verbal fast” – not talking to anyone, drinking alcohol, watching X movies, or having sex for 30 days.

The rapper, who suffered a backlash following anti-Semitic remarks, told his 31.8 million Twitter followers: “I haven’t talked to anyone for a month.”

A handwritten post below said, “I’m doing a 30 day cleanse. A verbal fast. No alcohol. No adult movies. No intercourse. In God we praise. Amen.”

However, West seemed to signal that his “fast” did not extend to social media, adding, “But my Twitter is still on.”

The 45-year-old, who legally changed his name to Ye last year, has just restored his Twitter account. His account has been blocked after he posted that he was “going to death with 3 ON JEWS” before claiming he was not “anti-Semitic because even blacks are actually Jews”.

He also accused record producer Sean “Diddy” Combs of being controlled by the “Jewish people” in an Instagram post.

He is currently locked out of Instagram for 30 days after violating their policies as well.

Just this week a former co-worker claimed that West had a “disgusting, hateful, strange Nazi obsession“, with six other people claiming to have heard him praise Adolf Hitler or mention conspiracy theories about the Jewish people, according to NBC news.

West has also made several other controversial remarks recently, including suggesting that slavery was “a choice” and calling the COVID-19 vaccine the “mark of the beast.”

Many watched in disbelief as she wore a “White Lives Matter” T-shirt during Paris Fashion Week in response to the Black Lives Matter movement. The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups, says White Lives Matter is a neo-Nazi group.

In an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program, West also made several remarks about Jews and money.
