Ye, formerly known as Kanye West, said he was motivated to acquire Parler by his belief that existing platforms are too restrictive when it comes to user speech.
Parlement Technologies, the parent company of social media app Parler, said on Monday that it will be acquired by rapper Kanye West.
Parler, the conservative social media platform, opened a new front in its legal battle with Amazon.com, accusing the tech giant of bad faith after being banished from its servers.
The decision by Amazon.com’s cloud unit to pull the plug on social media service Parler highlighted the company’s often-overlooked role powering much of the Internet.
Restrictions on social media app Parler underscore how technology companies have increasingly been held accountable for the potential consequences of what happens on their services.
