Rapper Kanye West has announced that he will go on a 30-day “verbal fast”, in which he abstains from talking, sex, pornographic movies and alcohol. The 45-year-old rapper revealed on Twitter that he is going on “oral fasting” as part of a 30-day cleanse, which will involve him not talking to anyone the entire time, reports FemaleFirst.co.uk.

Kanye wrote: “I’m taking a 30 day cleanse. An oral fast. No alcohol. No adult movies. No intercourse. In God we praise. Amen. But my Twitter is still burning.” He added: “I haven’t been talking to anyone for a month.”

But minutes after posting the message, the ‘Praise God’ hitmaker shared several tweets.

He concluded: “I’m getting a little sleepy but tomorrow… :))) I promise it will all be love speeches, I promise.”

Kanye was suspended from Twitter last month after posting an anti-Semitic tweet — but new Twitter owner Elon Musk confirmed last week that the star’s account had been reinstated.

The 51-year-old businessman wrote on the micro-blogging platform: “Twitter will set up a content moderation council with widely diverse perspectives. There will be no major content decision or account reinstatement before that council is convened.”

In response, an account called Republican Against Trumpism asked the new Twitter boss: “So why did you reinstate Kanye West’s account already? Twitter shouldn’t be a platform for spewing racism and antisemitism.”

Elon Musk, who is a friend of the controversial rap star, explained: “This account was reinstated by Twitter prior to the acquisition. He did not consult or inform me.”

Kanye’s ex-wife Kim Kardashian recently voiced her disapproval of anti-Semitic messages when she wrote on social media that hate speech is “never okay” or “forgivable.” But he did not mention the rap star by name.
