Ye, Yeezy, Kanye, Kan-yeezy or whatever name he’s going by these days, polarizing hip-hop entrepreneur Kanye West — reportedly currently known as “Ye” — has bought embattled social media platform Parler on Monday, supposedly in the name of free speech.

"In a world where conservative opinions are considered to be controversial we have to make sure we have the right to freely express ourselves," Ye said in a statement, according to Fox Business.

In a post on Parler, Parlement Technologies CEO George Farmer spoke about the move.

“This deal will change the world, and change the way the world thinks about free speech,” Farmer said. “Ye is making a groundbreaking move into the free speech media space and will never have to fear being removed from social media again.”

It remains to be seen if Parler can withstand the open censorship of their platform, like when Amazon, Apple and Google all banned the website and app from their platforms in a coordinated effort after the events of January 6, 2021.

The leftist mob accused Parler of giving a platform to those involved in the “insurrection,” while Facebook got off scot-free for doing the exact same thing and worse.

What does this mean for the social media landscape? Well, in a perfect world, social media would decrease in popularity and give people an opportunity to learn how to properly communicate with one another again. But, in reality, this move will hopefully add to the growing number of platforms that protect free speech.
