Elon Musk suspends Ye’s Twitter account. After the rapper, formerly known as Kanye West, posted an image of a swastika inside a Star of David, Musk tweeted on Friday that Ye “again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”

Ye’s deal to acquire conservative social app Parler is off. Parlement Technologies, Parler’s parent company, said on Thursday that the “decision was made in the interest of both parties in mid-November.” According to The Washington Post, a Parlement spokeswoman said the deal was terminated “mainly due to [Ye’s] recent and well-publicized business difficulties.”

CEO Chris Licht addresses CNN employees after layoffs. Licht sent staffers an internal memo on Thursday detailing other changes to the news organization, including ending live programming on HLN, CNN’s sister channel. CNBC reported that the job cuts affected hundreds of staffers, but amounted to a “single-digit percentage” of the employee base. 

McKinsey & Company-backed plans angered Disney creative executives. Walt Disney had been working with the consulting firm in recent months on an effort to centralize control of major spending decisions, prompting backlash from the entertainment company’s senior creative staffers, according to people familiar with the matter. Discussions regarding the plan were under way in the weeks leading up to former CEO Bob Chapek’s exit.
