Just a few hours after Ye, formerly Kanye West, spent almost praise three hours Hitler, the Nazis and Holocaust Denial on Alex Jones’ Infowars, Parler announced that it had ended the sale of his website to him.
In a brief press release, Parler said, “Parlement Technologies has confirmed that the Company has reached an agreement with Ye to terminate its intention to sell Parler.”
According to the email, the sale was canceled in mid-November, meaning it wasn’t prompted by Yes’s appearance at Infowars.
“This decision was made in mid-November in the interests of both parties,” the statement said. “Parler will continue to monitor future growth opportunities and platform advancements for our vibrant community.”
Parler announced that it was being sold to Ye following his suspension for anti-Semitic comments on Twitter and Instagram.
However, after the announcement, Adidas decided to dump Ye, which may have cost him billions, leaving him financially unable to complete the deal.
Yes’s Twitter account has since been restored as well, and he used live on Alex Jones’ show and allowed Jones and prominent white nationalist Nick Fuentes to tweet from it.
