(Los Angeles, CA) -- A tweet from Kanye West considered anti-Semitic has been deleted by Twitter.

Over the weekend, the rapper now known as Ye tweeted, "I'm a bit sleepy tonight but when I wake up I'm going death con 3 on Jewish people." He also claimed that he cannot be anti-Semitic because Black people "are actually" Jewish, and added, "You guys have toyed with me and tried to blackball" anyone who opposes "your agenda."

The tweet has since been replaced by a notice that reads, "This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules."

On Friday, Ye was restricted on Instagram for violating company rules.
