The deal won’t go through, Parler-owner Parlement Technologies announced today, despite a joint announcement from Ye (aka Kanye West) and Parler in October indicating that the two had struck an agreement for the musician to buy the social network.
Ye and the owner of Parler have “mutually” split up without finalizing the transaction, the business informed TechCrunch in an email. Given the official statement’s wording, which is as follows, it appears that the agreement was never truly established beyond at most a memorandum of understanding.
“Parlement Technologies has confirmed that the company has mutually agreed with Ye to terminate the intent of sale of Parler. This decision was made in the interest of both parties in mid-November. Parler will continue to pursue future opportunities for growth and the evolution of the platform for our vibrant community.”
It’s also important to note that Parlement claims the arrangement really expired in mid-November, meaning it has been withholding this information for at least a month. What has thus changed?
Well, there’s the fact that earlier today West praised Adolf Hitler and the Nazis in an interview with none other than Alex Jones, who was just found responsible for paying out close to $1 billion in damages for spreading dreadful lies about the incredibly tragic Sandy Hook school shooting.
