Kanye West has been banned from performing at the Grammys this year, his rep confirms to People.
The decision was reportedly made due to his “concerning online behavior.” Last Wednesday, Ye was suspended from Instagram for 24 hours for violating the platform’s policies on hate speech and bullying and harassment.
He had been posting frequent attacks on his ex-wife Kim Kardashian and her new boyfriend Pete Davidson, and most recently had used a slur against The Daily Show host Trevor Noah. Noah is hosting the Grammys this year.
Ye is nominated for five Grammys. He had not been named as part of the first batch of performers, but it’s possible he was being considered for the lineup.
The 64th annual Grammy Awards airs Sunday, April 3, on CBS.
