We recently reported that Kanye West agreed to buy the social media app Parler.
Now sources are claiming that West accidentally leaked the information of Parler’s ‘VIP’ users in an email that he sent to hundreds of individuals on the platform.
While this does represent a mistake and unprofessional behavior, it seems like the mainstream media is coordinating and sustaining attacks on Kanye West.
The attacks have been going on for years and seem to have ramped up with both West’s public support of President Trump and, more recently, the ‘white lives matter’ T-shirt.
Whether or not one disagrees with what West said is no excuse to de-platform him or otherwise slander his image.
As I recall, West was censored before he could even really explain the source of his alleged anti-Semitic comments and it was not clear who he was actually addressing, but I gather it was specific individuals he knew within the music industry.
Again, worse comments are made brazenly, openly, and proudly to whites, conservatives, men, and Trump supporters, every single day in this country. Comments and attitudes that actually endanger them—not their precious ‘identity’.
Here’s more on the story:
Parler sent an email on this to *hundreds* of influencers this morning with the news but forgot to BCC and everyone is replying all. Off to a great start… https://t.co/alePpJULuk

Daily Caller broke the story:
The contact information of hundreds of “VIPs” were left visible to recipients of the message, which was obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation, along with assurances that the company’s mission and customer service efforts were not going to be changed.
The message appeared to reveal the contact information for notable conservative voices like Candace Owens, Andrew Wilkow and journalist Andy Ngo, as well as at more than a dozen accounts affiliated with the House and the Senate.
Thoughts on Kanye West buying Parler?

The purchase was announced Monday, following a series of antisemitic remarks across various social media platforms that led to the famous rapper being suspended from Instagram and Twitter.
Parler did not immediately respond to the DCNF’s request for comment.
