A massive bank has debanked another controversial political figure.
Conservative influencer Candace Owens posted an image of a letter allegedly sent by JP Morgan Chase bank to Kanye West which informed him his company’s bank accounts will be closed in late November.
The letter, with the subject line “IMPORTANT: Closing of Our Banking Relationship” gave no explanation or reasoning behind the censorship of the prominent rapper.
“Earlier today I learned that @kanyewest was officially kicked out of JP Morgan Chase bank. I was told there was no official reason given, but they sent this letter as well to confirm that he has until late November to find another place for the Yeezy empire to bank,” Owens stated on Twitter.

“I want to say that I do not care what you think about Ye West— but I very much care what you think about this,” she added.
“We have reached extremely frightening times in this country,” Owens warned her followers.
Mr. West has been across headlines over the past week for a multitude of controversial political takes the rapper recently made.
Late last week, West unveiled a “White Lives Matter” t-shirt during his fashion event in Paris. Appearing alongside him was Candace Owens, a high-profile black Conservative figure.

West, following mainstream media outrage, was interviewed by Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. As National File previously reported:
Kanye West elaborated on his motivations behind wearing a “White Lives Matter” shirt during his fashion event in Paris earlier this week. “I do certain things from a feeling,” West said. “I just channel the energy, it just feels right. It’s using a gut instinct, a connection with God and just brilliance,” West told Tucker Carlson of Fox News in an exclusive interview.

West’s social media accounts on Instagram and Twitter were both censored after the rapper made remarks some considered anti-semitic.
On Instagram, West posted a screenshot of a text conversation with fellow rapper P Diddy. West suggested P Diddy was controlled by Jewish people and a federal informant.
“Ima use you as an example to show the Jewish people that told you to call me that no one can threaten or influence me,” West told his fellow rapper.
