Kanye West has announced that he is going on a "cleanse" and quitting sex, p*rn, alcohol, and even speaking.

The rapper has been making headlines recently thanks to a series of tweets many deemed antisemitic, several controversial interviews, and a 'White Lives Matter' t-shirt he donned during Paris fashion week.

As a result of his recent behavior, Balenciaga, GAP, Vogue and Anna Wintour, and Adidas all severed ties with the 45-year-old chart-topper, which resulted in Forbes publishing an article that revealed that Ye was no longer a billionaire.

Now, after so much publicity, it looks like the 45-year-old may be ready for some quiet time.

Taking to Twitter yesterday (November 3), the 'Stronger' hitmaker announced: "I’m taking a 30 day cleanse. A verbal fast. No alcohol. No adult films. No intercourse."

He added: "In God we praise. Amen."

Despite vowing to go on a "verbal fast", the rapper made it clear he would still be sharing his thoughts online. "But my Twitter still lit," he added.

Unsurprisingly, West's announcement sent the internet into a tizzy. Many people felt that his decision to quit adult movies and intercourse but stay on Twitter was misguided when it was his Twitter activity that had gotten him into trouble in the first place.

"Ye quitting adult films and intercourse but staying on Twitter is sorta like if a meth addict was like 'thats it. I'm done. no more cigarettes,'" one person commented.

Another sarcastically rephrased his post, writing: "In light of my [antisemitic] comments I will be participating in No Nut November."

A third pointed out the irony of West still being so active on social media. "He has made 11 posts since this one. Dude couldn't even make it 30 minutes," they joked.

"Some people would rather blame the consequences of their deliberately horrific actions on sex and drinking instead of seeking therapy," a fourth tweeted.

Since embarking on his "verbal fast", West has shared several alleged screenshots of his conversations with Canadian personal trainer Harley Pasternak.

According to the rapper, the texts allude to him being "mentally misdiagnosed and nearly drugged out of my mind to make me a manageable well behaved celebrity."

Last week, a video of West claiming to have been misdiagnosed by a "Jewish doctor" went viral on Twitter. In the clip, the College Dropout artist says he was "[driven] to a point of exhaustion which was misdiagnosed by - I'm not going to say what race, what people doctor. We know I can't say that. It was a Jewish doctor."

The rapper also compared his recent brand deal losses to the death of George Floyd.
