(VINnews / Yaakov M) — Elon Musk’s Twitter has reinstated the account of antisemite Neo-Nazi Nick Fuentes, who espouses anti-Jewish and white supremacist views, after he was banned from the social media platform in July 2021.
Fuentes has repeatedly denied the Holocaust and spewed virulent anti-Jewish rhetoric. He infamously attended a dinner accompanying fellow antisemite Kanye West at the home of President Trump in Mar-a-lago, however Trump later denied having heard of him and denounced his views.
One of Fuentes’ first posts back on the platform was a short video advertising Kanye’s 2024 presidential campaign, with a reference to an antisemitic tweet from West.
Many Jews and pro-Jewish group were critical of Twitter’s decision to reinstate Fuentes.

Online antisemitism is going mainstream, and turning into real-world attacks against Jews. @Twitter must take responsibility for its role in this trend, and remove Nick Fuentes from the platform. pic.twitter.com/feycC3Q3RK
