6:15 PM PT -- Honchos at Twitter tell TMZ ... the platform removed Kanye's Forbes Tweet because it revealed private information and Ye's account has since been temporarily locked.
5:42 PM PT -- Kanye says Twitter put him in time-out after his Tweet storm ... and he's using Rick Fox to get the word out.
Rick just told the world Ye's claiming Twitter kicked him off the social media platform for 12 hours ... and the timing is interesting.
The ban comes on the heels of Kanye doxing Forbes editor and chief content officer Randall Lane. In a since-deleted Tweet, Ye shared Randall's contact info, listing him in his contacts as "Randall Forbes" and calling him a "white supremacist."
10:23 AM PT -- Ye just took his thoughts on Black people needing a seat at the table to a WHOLE new level -- and that level is in the toilet ... where his Grammy is currently being rained upon.
Yes, Kanye just posted a video of himself apparently urinating on his own Grammy statuette, which is chillin' in one of his toilets at home and being subjected to a golden shower. Hard to say for sure if this is real or not, but the imagery is striking ... and gross too, we might add.
He captioned his post too and makes it clear he ain't sorry for this, writing ... "Trust me ... I WONT STOP." Presumably, this is one of the 21 Grammys Kanye has to his name -- awards he's boasted about in the past, but which clearly don't mean all that much to him these days.
Kanye Westisn't easing up off his push for Black ownership in enterprise, or his gripes about not getting a chance to own the masters to his songs.
Ye was going off again early Wednesday about African-Americans, by and large, not getting their fair share of the pie -- instead, he says they're mostly used by companies run by whites. He again points to the NBA and the music biz as examples.
In his new Twitter rant, he says, "We sat back and watched Nick Cannon get canceled and we go to play ball in a bubble with black lives matter on our backs ... brothers let’s stand together for real ... there is no NBA or music industry without black people ... fair contracts matter ... ownership matters."
Insisting he's made "multi billions," Kanye says he's one of the few who can openly speak on this issue without repercussion -- the implication being he's rich enough to where he doesn't have to worry about a record label trying to muzzle him.
Speaking of that ... Ye brings the convo back to himself and his own fight for ownership of his master recordings, blasting Universal Music Group and alleging they won't even give him a chance to buy them outright -- because he feels they know he can probably afford them.
Of course, this is the same argument his nemesis, Taylor Swift, made not too long ago ... as one of Kanye's associates pointed out to him on Tuesday morning.
Ye and Taylor on the same page??? 2020 strikes again.
