To be removed with Flashing Lights. Or, perhaps, Ultralight Beams.

Between denying the Holocaust, finalising his divorce and debuting a range of ‘White Lives Matter’ apparel, it’s been a busy few months for the artist formerly known as Kanye West.

As of this morning, Ye has found himself banned from Twitter once again after posting an image of a swastika inside the Star of David, alongside the caption: “YE24 LOVE EVERYONE #LOVESPEECH.”

The post comes following his appearance on Alex Jones’ Infowars podcast, during which he said “there’s a lot of things I love about Hitler” and deemed the Holocaust as “factually incorrect”.

The rapper also caused outrage when he conducted a ‘secret’ event at Paris Fashion Week, where models walked the catwalk in ‘White Lives Matter’ t-shirts.

In the past few months, Ye has been dropped by a number of his collaborators including Adidas, Gap and Donda Sports to name a few – the likes of Goodwill, TJ Maxx and Foot Locker have also announced that they’ll no longer be stocking any products associated with the rapper.

His divorce with Kim Kardashian has also reached a settlement and just incase Kim isn’t the only one looking to distance herself, London tattoo studio NAAMA is now offering a free removal service for any Kanye or Kanye-adjacent tattoos people may have gotten over the years.

In a post on Instagram, which shows a tattoo of the All Falls Down rapper being lazered off, the NAAMA team wrote:

When you have a tattoo inspired by someone you admire and they end up making headlines for all the wrong reasons… at NAAMA we offer an empowering, empathetic, high-tech tattoo clearing experience. If you want a change, we’re here to help.

Handy info for anyone with regrettable ink from their younger years.
