A viral post on Twitter claims that Kanye West has been banned from the Yu-Gi-Oh Trading Card Game, but is it real?
Over the last week or so, Kanye West has been under scrutiny over his comments levied towards the Jewish community.
Now, a screenshot from the Yu-Gi-Oh TCG banned players list has sparked rumors that the 808s & Heartbreak’s rapper has been banned from the game — but is it real?
Viral tweet sparks Kanye West Yu-Gi-Oh ban rumors
On October 26, A Twitter user named ‘Francisxwolf’ posted a picture of the Yu-Gi-Oh ‘Suspended Persons List.’
It reads: “Kanye West has been suspended from Yu-Gi-Oh!”
The picture shows the name ‘West, Ye’ with a ban date of October 25, 2022, for “Unsporting Conduct – severe.”
However, if you look at the website that the screenshot is from, you won’t be able to find any mention of Kanye’s name — proving that the screenshot is in fact fake and the rapper can play as much Yu-Gi-Oh that he wants.
